    If it's Miles Masa he's looking for, I believe he passed away a few years ago. :(

    I did a quick search on here, and in 2008, there was a reference to "the late Miles Masa" sp? Have seen it spellled both Mesa and Masa. Stu

    Are you looking for a car he built, or just info on him?
    I remember seeing a chopped 46-48 Ford coupe, and a couple chopped mercs he built. I believe Pat Ganahl was friends with him.

    A car I'm lookin at buyin is supposedly built by him. The owner said "Charles Masa" built it in the 60's, but he coulda meant Miles. It's a 54 Crown Vic.

    Here is the 1952 Chevy Bel Air Miles built back in 87. According to his son, this was the final car Miles built and showed. I currently own it in Southern California where it has been in my possession for the past 14 years. Anymore info about the car would be greatly appreciated. I think the name of the car was lollipop? I also heard and read that Miles built it from another car that he saw on the cover of a 1950's motor trend car? Anyway if anyone has any info or questions let me know. Thanks.
