Built in around 1994 and is with one of the first LET engined novas iirc.

Still stands strong to this day, goes well and has all the right ingredients.

There are a few issues to address, will photograph these 2moro and list what i intend doing to sort them over the next few months.

looking at a progressive rebuild/freshen up with some modern touches!

I was watching that mofo on ebay. Lovely car from back in the day & amazing to see it still looks the way it used to, right down to the Courtenay turbo sticker on the screen.

Glad its in good hands tbh. Crazy colour but looks good for it.

Jammy bugger!

every single one of your cars is mint.

do you want a boyfriend? i'll blow you for a weekend drive in either car.

PS. for those that know me from my nova days, i had a nova in that shade of pink, with a little bit of pearl to it, with BUCKETS of rainbow flake blown over the top. got called a ****** quite a bit but the girls LOVED IT! and if they were honest, lads loved it too but were too ashamed to admit it lol

chap called chris bow had it from merthyr. the guy i had it off owned it since.

already sourced an f28, will transfer the quaife diff from the f20 into the f28!

further plans include to lower the tca's and fit some rear gearbox spacer mounts tro replace the big washers currently fitted!

also plan to modify the calibra turbo front seats as they sit far too high for me, im 6ft 2 +

Then its a case of stich welding the engine bay, dropping the pace intercooler into a big mouth in the front bumper (currently sits above the front panel behind the number plate!)

Possibly then look at more power!
