“In 1987, skateboard in hand, I stood in my childhood neighbourhood and admired a 1964½ Mustang Coupe with a 260 V8 engine. That was my first car,” Chris Miller explained. And inspiration for cars and drag racing came directly from his father, “My dad was a flag starter in the mid 60’s and raised my brother and I to repair our own cars.” That ’64½ would soon find its way into Miller’s driveway when he retired his skateboard, split the $1,000 price tag with his father and came home with the car. That first car is always special and Chris remembers well the countless hours of chatting with his dad while working on it, not to mention his first drags on Main Street and races with friends. “My first ‘heartbreaks’ were experienced in that car and I never parted with it. I’ve owned multiple cars throughout my life but that Mustang will always be my first love,” he added.
