We are too sorry to hear of Ray's passing, our thoughts and wished are with the family.

Their legacy, a club for Model 'T's, has grown from humble beginnings to a club of international proportions. Model 'T's from all over the world now unite under a common banner because of their vision and dreams. Wow, what a great way to be remembered.

Ray Miller was an exceptional man who gave a lot to the old car hobby. I used references from one of his books to restore a 1964 Falcon Sprint convertible 30 years ago, and used his Mustang book when I restored a '66 Shelby GT350H 20 years ago.

The book Ray co - wrote with Bruce McCalley, From here to Obscurity, is a classic and worthwhile book for any Model T enthusiast.

He left a lot to us all. Thanks Ray!

A bit of an interesting side note.
Bruce McCalley was involved with Ray Miller in some of his Books. You will note his books were printed by Evergreen Press a name they came up with which just happened to be the name of the Street that Bruce lived on when he used to live in Burbank

He has now joined the infinite Model T tour in the sky with all his co-founders. May he rest in peace, and his family find comfort in that he touched so many lives in such a great way.
