Bert,
Google Maps says that the two "Manitou"s are only a 16 hour and 5 minute drive apart!

Cranking can also be good exercise, just don't let your thumb get in the way if the engine is in
a cantankerous mood about having to be made to wake up in such a hands-on manner and decides to
throw the infernal device back at you.  Has been a cause of innumerable broken or dislocated wrists, elbows,
arms and shoulders too... :'(

"I too enjoyed your memory.  Nice photo of the car too.  Do you still have it?"

Unfortunately not Dennis, it was replaced by one of many automotive paramours.  A brief affair with a Porsche 356 in 1963,
then a return to the MG fold in late fall of 1964 with the acquisition of  a "B". :-\
