Miller-Meteor is really the story of three companies - the A.J. Miller Company, the Meteor Motor Car Company, and the Miller-Meteor Division of the Wayne Works Corporation.
The only definitive book ever published on Miller-Meteor and its illustrious corporate predecessors, this tome is a multi-faceted history of three fiercely independent, yet interwoven, companies, the unique segment of the motor industry in which they were involved, their charismatic leaders and, most of all, their unique products.
This volume showcases hundreds of never-before published original factory photographs.

Weller Brothers of Memphis - Photo Archive

Weller Brothers was one of a half dozen ambulance and hearse conversion businesses based in the Memphis, Tennessee locale during the decade following World War II. Although the smallest of these businesses, it was arguably the most interesting.
Weller Brothers built three basic types of professional cars - straight ambulances, hearses and ''combination'' coaches. Accounting for the majority of Weller's production, the dual-purpose Combination could be used as either an ambulance or hearse as needed. With fold-down ambulance attendant seats and the insertion of a casket roller rack, the combination coach could be quickly reconfigured for funeral service.

What made Weller unique among America's professional car builders was the wide variety of base vehicles on which the company mounted its handcrafted bodies. While its much larger competitors built their hearses and ambulances on special long wheelbase commercial chassis supplied by Cadillac and Packard, Weller did conversions on any car provided by the purchaser.

Pictured inside the book are conversions based on products of the ''big three'', from Chevrolets, Buicks, Oldsmobiles, to Fords and Mercurys as well as Plymouth, Dodge, De Soto and Chrysler.
By the 1970s, the Weller Brothers' saga had come full-circle - from a small body shop, to a successful, well-known regional professional car converter and back to its core auto body shop business. You will find the complete story here accompanied by a remarkable collection of black and white photographs highlighting Weller Brothers production.

Over several centuries the ambulance has evolved from horse-drawn wagons designed to remove wounded soldiers from the battlefield into high-speed emergency rooms on wheels, staffed by skilled professionals.
This thorough history follows the ambulance through every phase, focusing not just on the vehicles but on their role within the developing medical systems they served, as well as the political, social and economic influences that have shaped their advancement.

Topics include the critical role of police ambulances in the development of the first emergency medical services, the history of the ambulance intern, breakthroughs in ambulance design and function from the horse-drawn days to the present, notable women in ambulance development, and a fresh look at the first organized paramedic services. More than 275 photographs and other illustrations accompany the text.
