As some of you know I've bought a new Nova.
I got a text from Benn yesterday while at work saying he'd seen a car I might like, along with a pic. He'd already taken my husband (Astra Dan) to have a look and he seemed to like it.
So we popped down there when I got home, by this point it was well after 7pm so no-one was around to ask for keys etc. But from the look of her she was just what I've been looking for for the last 2 years. Popped up there again today and had a word with the guy in the office. Turned out it actually belonged to his mechanic, but he manage to find the key so we could run it up and have a poke about,although by this stage it was pretty much sold, it was just a matter of price. No way was I paying the full £395, despite the new MoT. With a bit of bartering over the phone I got him down to £325. Tempcover.com to the rescue again and £13 later it was insured for 24 hrs. Smiling manically, I was behind the wheel of a Nova again! The engine is whisper quiet and pulls very well for a 1.2, thankfully it's 5 speed so is very usable on my daily commute. It's got 84k miles and a bit of history and not too much rust. So perfect for a few choice mode. I still have the seats, wheels and clocks from my old SR, and already have fitted smoked indicators and side repeaters.
Heres a few pics:
Also found the surround on the driver's door lock missing:
But had one in stock:
