      You may have all of this, but in the event you don't, here is what I have been able to determine:


      According to the 1966 SCCA membership list, Miller's address was:


      Frank D Miller

      5414 Kenilworth

      Riverdale, MD


      I haven't been able to track him any further .


      Miller and the Alfa are shown as racing at VIR. In two places he is on the entry list, but only once in the results. That is the April 30, 1967 Nationals where he finished 11th, racing under number 19. You may want to contact the VIR Historian, Nick England, at nick@... . The two entry lists have him with numbers 38 & 138. He is listed as being in the Washington, DC region and as living in Riverdale, MD, so this fits.


      There is a story in the November 2, 1968 Competition Press & Autoweek written by Dave Roethel, which says that Miller finished fourth in the small sedan/FP race and won FP. That race was held on October 13, 1968.


      By copy to Steve Knoll, both the Marlboro and VIR races  are listed as part of the Bill Dobbins inventory. Perhaps there are shots of Miller and the Alfa in there.


      Can't wait to see the car retake the track in Monterey next year, best of luck!


      Take care,

      Richard is looking for assistance on information on his Alfa race car.  Can any one help him?  I don’t remember Frank Miller.


      Richard,  Bob Bowers has raced an Alfa since the late 50’s. He lived in Richmond then and worked for Reynolds Aluminum and previously worked for Cunningham on the C4’s in Fl. The last contact info I had on him was in Atlanta, and last time I saw him was about 8 years ago at the Pittsburg Vintage meet.  706-219-4521  email gaber01@...

      Hello Craige


      I found your name and posts on the Marlboro Motor Raceway yahoo groups chat site, having tried to figure out how to get a post onto the site (without success) I am hoping you might be able to help out a fellow commercial real estate broker


      I recently acquired a formerly well-known Giulietta Spider (actual the remains of said car…) which belonged to Frank D Miller from 1963-70, and ran on the west coast from 1970 until 1991

      When at Marlboro I believe the car was baby blue and ran the #38, when on the west coast it was brown with the #69, and was run by a well know Alfisti, Hilary “HB” Luginbuhl


      Might it be possible to have the MMR yahoo group moderator contact me below ? I would like to see if anyone associated with MMR can connected me with Frank Miller, or if anyone has any photographs of the car

      The hope and plan is to have the car ready to try for a Monterey Reunion slot in 2013….


      Thanks for any help you can offer !
