1928 Miller Indy

1928 was the first year Eddie Rickenbacker presided over the Indy 500. Leon Duray's stunning supercharged front wheel drive Miller dominated the first half of the race with a blistering 122 mph average lap. Sadly the car was later force out of the race with overheating problems.

I remember checking an Indy 500 book out of the school library in 2nd grade and starring at the 1928 page for days. If I was forced to pick a single most beautiful car of all time I'm pretty confident it would be a Miller.
