A business driven by a Gosford family from the very beginning…

 

There was a lot happening in 1939. Robert Menzies sworn in as Prime Minister. War declared on Germany.

 

But here on the Central Coast, the big news was all about Fred and Evelyn Booth. And the service station they’d purchased on Mann St just opposite Gosford Railway Station.

 

The newly christened Booth’s Garage had been open for business just two days when Australia entered the Second World War as an associate of the United Kingdom.

 

So it wasn’t long before vehicles, spare parts and labour were all in short supply.

A Legacy on the Central Coast

 

It was Fred and Evelyn’s son Kevin that served their very first customer. “I was nine,” Kevin recalls.

 

In those early days, the power required to operate the petrol pump was produced by pedaling a stationary bicycle crank. “I remember going straight to the garage when I finished my day at Gosford Public School and pumping petrol.”

 

It didn’t take young Kevin long to fall in love with the family business, “It was wonderful to be involved from such a young age.”

 

Kevin grew up alongside the business. Watched as new services like parts sales, repairs and eventually vehicle sales transformed Booth’s from a Gosford NSW petrol retailer into one of the most trusted and longest running businesses on the Central Coast.

“I think the thing I have enjoyed most over all those years has been getting to know so many people around Gosford — I used to walk down Mann St and know just about everybody.”

Booth’s Motor Group Gosford and Tuggerah

 

As the years ticked by, Booth’s reputation as the Gosford company famous for providing quality cars and prize service to Central Coast locals continued to spread. And when Fred Booth passed away in 1963, it was Kevin that stepped into a management role alongside his mother.

 

Today, Booth’s Motor Group proudly serves their Central Coast friends and neighbours from locations in North Gosford and Tuggerah – next level service from a new generation of the Booth’s family. Which means the world to Kevin.

 

“The thing of which I am most proud is the continuing involvement of my children and their children.” And as the 80th anniversary of Booth’s Motor Group closes in, there’s little reason to doubt Kevin when he says, “Booth’s will remain a family business for many years to come.”
