Harry A. Miller’s Masterpiece Motors
Miller’s engines and cars were – and still are – works of art. Each year, in early July, some five-dozen racing relics come thundering out of the pages of history books to circle the famous one-mile long track at Milwaukee’s Wisconsin State Fairgrounds.
Harry A. Miller was a native of Menomonie, WI, who moved to Los Angeles in 1894 to started Master Carburetor Co. In early 1912, he developed an aluminum-nickel-copper alloy he called Alloyanum. With it, he could make marvelous pistons and high-output manifolds.
Harry A. Miller Manufacturing Co. became the West Coast machine shop to visit if you wanted your car to go fast.
