    I was 20 years old in the summer of 1958 when this photo was taken.
    Now, 80 years old in the summer of 2018 still looking at these photos.  
    One good car then, one great memory now!   Thank you,  Phil Kaelin

    Rik,
    The grille appears to be a '38 Deluxe, rather than a '39 Standard. Has it been substituted, or is it perhaps really a '38?

    I haven't thought about Miles for a long time.  I knew him when I was about 12 or 13 years old.  He was a member of Messiah Baptist Church.  I was a geek but Miles knew I liked cars.  The Awana club at the church had a model contest and Miles was the judge.  He gave  me the trophy because he liked the metal flake paint.  When I could I would hang around with Miles.  He was someone that I looked up to a great deal.  I went to an auto show with him and he traded a custom 34 Ford for a vette.  To him no big deal , to me he was a God.  At one point I was in his garage in Downers Grove.  He said he wanted to show me something.  The door opened and it was Roland Leong's Hawaiian funny car.  To him no big deal, To me unreal.  Years later I still was in touch with him from time to time.  I was at a party at the home of the guy who owned ALL the Sizzler steak houses in the area.  ( I knew his son) The owner ( Art Ellis) and his wife were on vacation and out of town..  After to much to drink I managed to drive my custom monster truck into his wife's new OLDS.  They were returning in two days.  My only shot was to ask Miles to fix it prior to their return.  He did and no one was the wiser.  That was I think about 1975- 76.  I have never disclosed that to anyone with the exception of Art's son Bobby in 43 years.  Miles was someone that I idolized and Miles even though I was a geek treated me like a man.  
    He was a great man I and I still think about him and  Goofy Grape ( the car ) to this day.
