The car shown at the Old Motor site is the 1906 Christie racer.
Walter Christie is setting out for a final test run, probably the week of Sept 10, 1906. The American Elimination Trial is only a week and a half away.
Unfortunately, things soon began to go wrong. On Saturday, September 16, Walter had just replaced a broken front axle and was heading out for an early morning test. He had not noticed that his steering gear had been damaged by the axle failure. As he accelerated down East Williston road, he only went 100yards before the car veered into a gully and collided with a telegraph pole.
