Got Sticky Valves?

Speed age magazine 1955

I was pretty excited the other day when I got my
January 1955 Speed age magazine in the mail that
I got from Ebay, because on page 34 was an article
for a bellytank that I have never seen before.
Which I might add is rare, since I have been searching out
Tanks for a few years now.

Not Gonna Make It

Well, it's Aug. 8th, and Bonneville is this weekend, and I'm finally admitting that the tank won't be ready to run.. I had my doubts for the last two months, but kept hope alive just in case all the small details came together in the end, but no such luck. Oh well. At least there's October just around the corner, and not to mention El Mirage Sept. 10th, which I would rather run at first anyway just to break her in. I will be at Bonneville this weekend regardless, so I'll probably see some of you out there.

Thanks to everyone who helped and supported, and enjoy these great pics taken by Zap Teshima at El Mirage last month.
