Ed Miller’s former gear shop is Mopar’s heaven, filled with Hemi cars and engines
The winner would get $ 10,000, about half the price of an average home at the time. As a result, the best American drag racers in the Super Stock Championship line up at the Christmas tree. And many of them drove the latest factory dragsters made by Ford, GM, and Mopar.
Miller, meanwhile, joined the series with a two-year-old 1965 Plymouth Belvedere A990. And to everyone’s surprise, he won the championship and set some speed records en route to the final.
He will soon become one of the top runners on the sponsored Mopar team. He ran a dealer performance program and led Barracudas, Dusters and Challengers to glory in various classes of drag racing.
Now a retired legend, Miller still runs his old speed shop, which is full of classic Mopars, dragsters, car parts, and a few racing Hemi engines. This is the place to be if you like old, track-ready Dodge and Plymouths and thanks to YouTube’s “Poor Boys Garage” we can take a virtual tour of the store.
A time capsule that looks a lot like it was when Ed was still racing, the store is home to many 1960s Mopars. While some are regular muscle cars that have been stripped of parts, others are full-fledged dragsters that were retired decades ago.
But there’s also a Hemi-powered Plymouth Duster that looks like it can go the quarter mile at all times. Unlike most cars parked in the yard, the Duster has been stored indoors and appears to be in excellent condition. The race-spec Hemi is sparkling clean, one of the nicest gas guzzlers I’ve seen in a long time.
And check out the yellow 1969 Road Runner dragster with the big “beep beep” decals. Looks like it sat for a long time, but it still works. Go to the 20 minute mark and you will see it being dragged out of its resting place, washed, and parked in a garage. Under his own power!
So are any of these cars for sale? I have no idea, but it looks like Bradley may have saved a 1964 Plymouth Savoy dragster car. From what he said in the comments, we’ll see him on his channel soon. In the meantime, take an exclusive and exciting tour of Ed Miller’s boutique. It’s a click away in the video below.
