MILLER-METEOR REUNION
PIQUA, OHIO

What is the first thing a newly-formed PCS Chapter should do?  Hold a blow-out meet, of course!  And the newly-formed Miller-Meteor Chapter did just that in June, 2004 with the "Miller-Meteor Reunion" in Piqua, Ohio.  We were blessed to have many M-M retirees in attendance as well as very special guests Marta McLaughlin and Terry Fultz,  granddaughters of A. J. Miller and great-granddaughters of co-founder Amos Miller.  What a rare treat this event was!

Our Meet Coordinators, Tom Caserta, long-time Miller-Meteor employee, and Tony Karsnia, President of the M-M Chapter.
Our group assembled outside of the towering A. J. Miller plant in Bellefontaine, Ohio. In answer to the inevitable question:  Yes, they moved the vehicles between the three floors with an elevator!

The men and women who crafted our beautiful M-M professional cars are photographed by Gregg Merksamer for publication in several magazines.
Posing outside the Meteor, then later the Miller-Meteor manufacturing plant in Piqua, OH, the retirees are surrounded by the cars they crafted.
Here are the Miller-Meteor cars in attendance at the 2004 M-M Reunion.  Chuck Kramer's 1979 M-M Landau Traditional Duplex combination is in the foreground.
Marta McLaughlin & Terry Fults, granddaughters of A. J. Miller and great-granddaughters of co-founder Amos Miller visit with retirees, including Dennis Floss (right), a longtime plant employee.
Three of the Miller-Meteor retirees reminisce about the days of building grand Cadillac ambulances, like Steve Lichtman's 1970 M-M Cadillac Volunteer.
The founders of the Miller-Meteor Chapter guard the door of the M-M plant in Piqua:  (l to r) Dennis Goethe, Jon Wurm, Chuck Kramer, Tom Caserta longtime M-M employee, Tony Karsnia and Larri Dirks.
In a re-creation of what the customary "delivery day" picture, Tom Caserta (left) a long-time Miller-Meteor employee, presents keys to Larri Dirks for his 1976 Miller-Meteor Cadillac Classic Limousine Duplex just outside the showroom doors of the M-M Plant.
Tom presents Jeremy Ledford the keys to his 1977 M-M Cadillac.
Sarah Snook accept the keys from Tom Caserta for her 1966 M-M Cadillac duplex.
Tom hands the keys over to Jon Wurm for his 1976 M-M Cadillac Ambulance.  Imagine the ambulance squad's pride of receiving a new, state-of-the-art Cadillac ambulance right from the factory!
Jon Wurm and Larri Dirks traverse under the "Welcome to Piqua" railroad bridge on the way into the town were their professional cars were made.
Chuck Kramer's perfect 1979 M-M Cadillac Landau Duplex is parked under the street sign that runs adjacent to the M-M Factory:  Main at Meteor.
The Meteor Motor Car Company names lives on with Tom Caserta's limited production hearses on Mercury and Crown Victoria chassis.  This car is destined for a funeral home in downstate Illinois.
