Ya, that's what I was hoping... someone in AZ, NV, or OR would be interested ... even if the car must be smogged in one of those states, finding a good used or a replacement new manifold would be significantly easier! Then the new owner can enjoy the car or even resell it at a profit and enjoy the money.

Unfortunately I don't have any better pics of the cracks on my manifold, but it seems that the typical crack runs across the top from the O2 bung (which is to the left of the pic you quoted) toward the engine block (to the right of the pic). Here is someone else's pic that shows it better:
