Went to look at a genuine Nova Sport tonight as it happens, probably picking it up in the next few days.

1300cc though, so no LET engines required here ;)

Made me laugh...40 minutes, with help!

I can use just the large angle grinder they had and have the whole car cut up and in the back of a renault espace in that time.....and have done, many a time.

A genuine Sport?
Looking forward to pics if you get it. A minter or a basket case?
A couple of years back my uncle bought a bent XE'd Nova with the intention of reshelling it (which he never got round to) but once the shell was stripped he asked about for whats the best way to get rid of it. Gas axe then in the back of a van to the scrap yard came the reply. Off he goes and buys

an axe! He then spends a whole day chopping it up before fly tipping the remains!

Nah, it's been chavved unfortunately, so I'd be buying it as an earner.

Sell all the crap to young Nova monkeys, then sell the rolling shell/logbook/identity for more than I paid for the whole lot ;)
