HALL OF FAME LEGEND MEMBER, CHUCK MILLER, was one of Detroit's most prolific Builders & Customizer's during the 60's & 70's.
There wasn't a Hot Rodder or Car Guy (or, Gal !), that wasn't influenced by the power and style of his fantastic Automotive Creations during that time period. PLUS, most of these beautiful machines were turned into Model Kits ! That started a whole new generation of Car Buffs...many who have since built their own full-size versions of their early "dream cars".
Chuck built the prototypes for the Sonic Cuda, The Hurst Olds, The Rambler Scrambler, and many, many others for Chrysler, GM, & AMC.
His "Sonic Cuda", shown at the top of the page, was designed by the legendary Harry Bentley Bradley, and is one of Chuck's all-time favorite cars ! And, surprise, surprise, his "Bugs Buggy" is shown on the lower right-hand corner of the above Issue of the "1971 Hot Rod Show World Annual".
PERSONAL NOTES; The above Issue is from my personal collection and at our Interview Chuck was kind enough to sign it for me. I got the Issue IN 1971 when I was an Air Personality at KAAY Radio/Little Rock. Being the Ultimate Car Guy at the Radio Station, I did the remote broadcasts for the show and had kept it in my Archives for all of these years...little knowing that I would meet up with, AND, Interview the man whose cars were featured in that Show 36 YEARS LATER !! JK
Chuck was in charge of producing all of the vehicles in the Chrysler "Rapid Transit System" Caravan. A great example is the super-hot, customized, '71 Road Runner shown above.
The Rapid Transit System Caravan was one of the most successful advertising campaigns in Automotive History !
