My Grandfather and his Legendary Car

SG Roadster Promo Cut 2 from Justin Miller on Vimeo.

Thanks to the amazing Ernie Nagamatsu who has created this documentary along with the folks at the History Channel, and who tirelessly and lovingly restored my grandfather's record-smashing roadster. This is the trailer for a new film about the 1948/49 winning team of Chuck Spurgin and Bob Giovanine who beat every record in their class on the dry lake beds outside Los Angeles, California.

I'm so grateful to the amazing people that cared enough to find the car behind a barn where it had sat for 30 years, and meticulously brought it back to life, paying homage to the or

iginal guys who built and raced it.
