    Who knew we'd have so much to say about Novas!

    Only thing of use would be the identities.

    ...which, hopefully, could be changed to protect the innocent?

    But nearly 66K for a Nova?? Since when did an inlet manifold and a pair of Webers cost 65,850??? (based on values of yer average Novas.) To think, peeps on here were amazed at that 38K paid at auction for that Beta-engine Hawk a few weeks back....relative bargain?


    And going back a few posts, isn't it amazing, seeing the differences of what people consider "cool"? Hahahaha!

    Cool Re: Spotted at the weekend

    What people might not know is that GM hedged its bets, producing the carburettor version for the UK, and a fuel injected version for German consumption.
    Tony Fall (ex works Mini driver) was the GM motorsport manager at the time, and later formed Safety Devices.
    Interestingly, the 'alternative' camshaft for both cars was so peaky that you had to machine the head, otherwise you ran into valve spring coil binding, which was a very quick way to a new engine!!!

    Well it might be some kind of optical illusion, but looking at that exhaust manifold it appears to have a 5-cylinder engine in there...OK, NOW it's getting interesting! (Still not 60-odd K's worth tho)
