    All the still pictures are great! But this will make you feel like you were actually at the Milwaukee Mile last weekend:

    I’m out of town and obviously these are not from Milwaukee but I had these photos in my phone, they show some details of the centrifugal blower on Duray’s 91 cu. in. Miller.
    First is Zenas Weisel he and his brother John developed supercharging innovations for Miller like this intercooler on the Duray 91.

    Here’s the centrifugal blower on the 91, sorry @brjnelson I don’t have a photo of the carburetor either.

    Fitting the manifold for the carb to the blower in the tight confines required this unique solution to the radiator.

    Awesome machines!! My imagination goes wild lookin' at 'em... It had to take a lot of stamina to last 500 miles @ near W.O.T. in one of those things.

    Great pictures. The engineering and fabricating skills that went into the building of these cars is absolutely amazing! Thanks so much for posting.

    No homogenized hot rods in those photos, man's imagination/creativity is an amazing thing (if allowed without rule constraints)! Thanks for All the Wonderous pics and video.
