Showrod Sunday...Chuck Miller

Chuck ran a company called Styline Customs for Promotions, Inc. He built alot of cars for the model car company  MPC, Mattel, etc. He built the c-cab fire truck I posted awhile back. That truck won him the Ridler Award. He also built the full scale versions of the Zingers.
My two faves of his were the Red Baron Roadster and the Wood Burner. In contrast, even as a kid I could never comprehend why they stuck a Pontiac inline 6 in that car. And then the Wood Burner got a twin 6-71 blown 327. Budgets, I guess were the determining factor.
