BITD when Hot Rod used to do a multi-page write up on Bonneville the Markley belly tank was one of my favorites. I think it was because of the combination they ran, it was a Plymouth block with Dodge hemi heads. I'm sure they came up with an engine of small cubic inches to fit a particular class but the odd deck height combined with the hemi heads was one the speed equipment manufacturers hadn't dealt with. No problem for the Markley's, they made a blower manifold out of steel.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

A couple of racing Legends there. Earl Evans stands beside his tank while Wally Parks gets ready to make a run.

Yes, those are great pics !  I recognize the Bob Rufi tank- the one with 'Chevrolet' on the side.  It's been called the first belly tank.
