He has been parting out cars for 5 to 6 decades. So he got his money out of those cars. Still fixes cars and builds motor and trans for folks. What was a slant 6 duster worth in the late 70 or early 80. You probably paid someone to remove it from your yard. Now that we are in the 2000 all of a sudden everything is worth a fortune. Ed saved most of that from a car crusher, but no he did not spend 100K to build indoor heated storage for it in 1980. Who knew better? He has probably owned more hemi cars, superbirds and A12 then you will see. Fixed and sold them. Long ago. He was the go-to guy before the reproduction phase of the hobby and many dealers in the hobby bought in bulk from Ed back in the day. So just shut up, you are starting to sound like Brandon's.


He can’t take an hour and do something with that PST? It doesn’t have to be a [censored] show with parts rusting away. If he is overwhelmed then get some help or get rid of the stuff. It’s nothing to do with being a Karen or a Brandon. It’s common sense. Clean that [censored] up and take care of it.


Your standard huh, again you just assume everyone is like you or is filthy rich. You can't stand it unless you get to tell someone else what they are doing wrong. Must be pretty lonely for you at the top. You really have no clue and clearly have not even looked at who he is. Drop everything else going on to take care of the PST that apparently only a few of you care about. Go start a go fund me page and buy it; put your money where your mouth is. He doesn't have an obligation to do something with the truck because you think so? It is his truck. He is living his live the way he wants, why do you care.

Those guy had no right to film and post what they did, they came to see him and buy stuff which they did. Some of you just have to criticize regardless. Hope it make you feel better about yourself.



Get over yourself. I don’t care what Miller does or doesn’t do with his [censored]. My opinion is he is letting things go to hell. Every month I drive by a property that is loaded up with pre war cars rotting to the ground. The moronic old man who owned the stuff wouldn’t sell any of it. When he died he had it in his will to let it rust back into the earth, rather than have someone buy it. And that’s what the family is doing. They aren’t making any more of them, so why not save them? It won’t be long and all that [censored] Miller has sitting there will be left to his estate and I suggest the vast majority of it will end up at the scrapper. Too bad. Don’t be a Karen yourself.


Just because you think it won't make it true. Horsepower is KING. To dispute this is stupid. C. Alston

Nope you are the Karen, and as clueless as a Brandon. You did not just voice an opinion, you stated what he should do. Now you are comparing him to someone he is not. Why? He amassed that stuff running a business for 5 decades, Selling and buying. Never throwing anything away once he moved to that property. EVERYTHING is for sale and has been. Yes in business since the 60s. Do you know that 69 sixpack cars in the 70 were left abandon and bought at police auctions, Hemi cars were brought in to remove the engines for a 383 swap because of the gas crunch, Once the boom hit folks came down and bought the E bodies, bought the B bodies, and now folks are starting to come for the A bodies. Most of the cars back there are wrecked, or old race cars. Some complete cars from the early 60 with no interest because they are 4 door, or slant 6 318 cars. Many have been parted out for restorations of higher end cars.

What you don't get is 75% of that stuff bought at closed up dealer auctions, speed shops and such would have long been scrapped if he did not purchase it. And yes, when he passes there will be no body capable of purchasing the full inventory and most will go to the scrap yard. Just like every other speed shop and auto restoration shop I have seen close up when the owner died. 75 percent of the product for sale in the business goes for nothing or go to the metal scrapper.

And as stated by other that know him, things are sold at reasonable prices, or given to you. He is not some private owner that collected stuff, he is a retired mechanic/NHRA world champion who is did this for a living, and now that he is in his 80s and on a fixed income operates to the best of his abilities.

So instead of giving an uneducated opinion, while denigrating a specific person character you could have spent a little time researching and educating yourself. Go talk to the people who have been doing this since the 50s-60s and you will get some eye opening education about the evolution of this hobby.

I inquired about a certain truck he has and was emphatically told it was not for sale. This was last year when I was in the market for a truck. I then later tried and was contacted again stating that it may be for sale but the price would not be cheap, but was never given a price. So in my books that translates to its not for sale.

My wife thinks she’s sitting on a gold mine, but not a clue what any is.
I tried to contact ED inquiring about some parts for my 66 but there was no contact info, had his card but lost it

Well its not like he hasn't "seen" them before, hell, he raced the sh!t out of them. He probably doesn't give a damn about ever seeing them run again, he has fond memories every time he looks at them!

Seems pretty straightforward to me. Want something done with it all? Go buy it all. Talk is cheap. Takes money to buy whiskey.

Just reading some of these post on here and had to reply . Ed Miller is a damn legend and should be treated as such. How he stores , keeps his stuff is his own business. This guy was doing this stuff back before a lot of us knew what a car was. Yes everyone can have an opinion but give this genuine guy the respect he deserves.

Never said he wasn't a legend, or a dame good racer, it is just a shame to see all the parts and pieces cars sitting rotting away. no disrespect to anyone in any way shape or form.

sorry for commenting
