Powered by a 1949 Pontiac flathead six-cylinder, hot rodder Eddie Miller's Streamliner gained early success, reaching speeds of 235 km/h at Bonneville in 1950 and 251 km/h in 1952. But the Streamliner gained further notoriety by appearing on the cover of Hot Rod magazine in August of 1950.
Though it took first-place in this year's Lakesters and Bonneville Racers category, the '50 Eddie Miller Streamliner's ground-hugging stance wouldn't allow its owner, Don Ferguson of Rolling Hills Estates, California, to drive it up the winners' ramp in front of the Pebble Beach course clubhouse.
