Here’s another great group of cars from Millers at Milwaukee 2013…except we slipped in a ringer. One Miller race car wasn’t to be found on the race program, and it never ventured onto the race track. Nevertheless, it was the hit of the show in the race paddock on Friday morning.
Bob Manhart spent 12 years building his stunning miniature Miller 91 rear-drive racer, while auction impresario Dana Mecum describes himself as co-owner. It’s pedal-car sized, but it’s no toy: the racer is powered by an equally tiny and exquisite four-cylinder engine. A few photos of the small wonder are included in the gallery below, along with all the great full-scale racers.
At one point in the gallery you might think you’re seeing double, but no—there really were two red and white 1935 Miller Fords in attendance. The number 23 car belongs to Dana Mecum, while Tom Malloy owns and drives the number 35 ex-George Bailey car. Millers at Milwaukee is an embarrassment of riches that way. It’s vintage oval racing heaven. Already we can’t wait for next year.
