The reason I asked was that I remember from reading his account years ago of finding the Millers that they were amongst a number of Bugattis which there seen to be a number of in the posted picture.

No, I know nothing of where this was.

Just so the rest can appreciate the Miller race cars that Speedwrench and Brass car guy were referring here is an identical car to one of the two cars brought back from France in 1959. As it was at Indy and then as it sits today.
The original picture of what some may incorrectly label as cars with patina (only several Bugattis I believe), it struck a nerve as I grew up with cars in similar shape (although not as pricey maybe) but with dust and cosmolene, since my grandfather was a large collector. Here are some cars undergoing museum restorations in the 60s with hot rodders in many cases that my grandfather hired. The cars would often be lifted with the front wheels up on 55 gallon drum so we could get underneath and remove the grease and grime. Actually it was a fun place. I believe that is me over on the right side of the photo.
In the sake of accuracy the #18 car was driven at Indy by Ralph Hepburn but the cars were pretty much identical.
