Default Re: Miles "The Mouse" Melius

Slim, this actually was a 40 Ford sedan body cut down. They called it a coach. This is the car that the Mouse got hurt in. He hit the wall head on during qualifying going an estimated 85mph. He flew completely over a road grader parked outside the wall. He had a broken jaw, wrist and had cuts and bruises. Went to the hospital and came back to the track the same night and was signing autographs. How tough is that? I was there that night and will never forget it. If I could figure out how to post pictures I would. Do you still live in Wisconsin?
