My name is Raul Romo. I live in Chula Vista, California.

I just completeted my Manx- actually I'll never be finished (you know how that is). The car was originally metalic-blue but I've had it re-done in signal yellow with gold flake. It looks really nice. The interior is done in tweed with yellow piping. I had the tunnel cut and notched to accomodate the racarro seats. The roll-bar and windshield are cut down. The engine is a 2180cc with O44 heads, duel carbs 009 distributers, and after market cam. I wanted to keep the car as close to its old-school look as much as possible.

I'm looking forward to meeting all the club members and new friends. I really enjoy your website. It looks like you guys have a lot of fun!
