I live in Norfolk, Virginia. If anyone is ever in the area you can contact me at britnicholson"at"yahoo.com. I would really like to look at a GT with all of the vacuum lines where they should be. I probably won't be driving mine very far until I get a getrag.

Hey... up here in Richmond. Not a lot of us around. I am going to be going down to Norfolk hopefully soon to save a basket case Manta. Maybe stop buy and help with those vaccum lines.

On the road again

Well, I actually got the thing running again yesterday (I think it was the accelerator pump diaphram that I just replaced) and I finally found out where those vacuum lines go and replaced them. It was getting a little too cold to be riding my Triumph around. But I'm definitely interested in learning how to check the timing on my car if you wouldn't mind showing me, and I would be glad to help you save a Manta, and meet another Opeler in the process. When are you coming down here and for how long?

I don't have a truck, but if the Manta runs and is registered I could drive it. Of course, I would need a way back to Norfolk.
