From time to time in motoring magazines, I have seen photos and brief details on the Miller racing cars from the USA. During the 1920s these cars, some of which featured front-wheel drive, won many big races in that country.
It is also a fact that Ettore Bugatti inspected one of them in France and copied Harry Miller’s twin-cam straight-eight design for use on some of his racers.
I don’t know if in the past Motor Sport has ever profiled these cars; regardless, perhaps it’s time now to have a detailed look at how they worked, how they drove and something about the man himself.
I am, yours, etc.
