Alvis Solamander in Manitoba in Emergency Services Posted March 14 Hi all. This beauty of a beast is now in my care and I am currently tasked with reviving him. I have dubbed him Big Al. He is going to be featured in a new TV series that will soon be filming here in Manitoba. Any information on the ignition system would be greatly appreciated as it's like nothing I've seen before. Any information on anything would be helpful for that matter. I am anxious to get him running and go for a drive. My boss wants that to happen in the next few days. I'm hoping that when filming wraps that I will be able to buy him and give him a good home. Thanks in advance, Dean.
