Buster Miles was one of 10 children born to Mim and Dollie. Buster and his siblings worked the farm in Glencoe until Buster joined the Army and left before completing high school. During his time with the 41st Infantry, which was one of the first to enter Hiroshima after the atomic bomb was dropped, Buster sold his cigarette, beer, and whiskey rations and loaned money to save $2,500 while in the Army. Buster then returned to Glencoe and completed his high school education. It was 1947. Jackie Robinson signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Harry Truman was President. The Frisbee was invented. Reddi-Wip hit grocery store shelves. Pan Am offered round-the-world airfare for $1,700. Buster Miles secured a loan for $2,500 and, with his brother John, opened Miles Motors.
Miles Motors featured fine used cars on their independent lot in Anniston on Noble Street. It continued to operate even after 1952 when Buster purchased Jim McGriff’s 25 year-old Chevrolet – Oldsmobile dealership in Heflin. The employee staff of five grew to ten within five years. In 1960, Buster opened the doors to a new location of Buster Miles Chevrolet – Olds and, simultaneously, introduced the area to a state-of-the-art service department and body shop. The number of employees then had swelled to 13.
Much has happened since then. Buster Miles Chevrolet-Oldsmobile is now just Buster Miles Chevrolet and Ford joined the Buster Miles franchise in 1994 and now flourish from a spacious, modern facility off I-20 at exit 199. Buster Miles dealerships employ 50 customer-focused men and women in sales, service, parts, and body repair. Day-to-day operations have been turned over to Matt Miles, Hope Miles Jamison, and Mim Miles.
