The vacuum lines are the defeats for the Cruise Control. Break vacuum
when depressing the clutch or brake and the cruise control is disabled
until Resume is hit. In the case of the Clutch it's to prevent over
reving (or inadvertent reving) of the engine no longer under load, in the
case of the brake I'd imagine it's pretty self explanatory.
