Tom Faletti's 1927 Miller 91 Front Wheel Drive
(click the image to go back)
This is a replica of Pete DePaolo's Miller 91 C.I. Front
Wheel Drive car as rendered by new club member Tom Faletti.
And what a rendering it is. Anyone who's familiar with
the Southeast Finecast of England 1/24 scale metal curbside
kit that Tom based this build upon will recognize that
he's put in a lot of extra work to make it look good and
exhibit lots of detail. In the days when high-banked speedways
were surfaced with wooden boards this Perfect Circle Piston
Rings sponsored car acheived speeds approching 150 mph!
DePaolo qualified third at Indy in 1927 with this ride,
but a busted set of supercharger gears forced him out
of this race after only 31 laps.
