Well I made it to Stafford this year when the Nova decided to start ( bit flat ), I got a very good place so good no one else was placed there.
They parked me right in front of the entrance so everyone had to walk past it, as soon as I pulled in the show features reporter came across. he took a few photos of the Nova then typed in the details, i got him to write in the web site as well. So fingers crossed i may join some of you others in that hall of fame in the sky.

I took a few pics so when they have finnished uploading I'll post them on her later.

Also spoke to Nick who sold the silver Nova on ebay last week, to a 25 year old from Portsmouth, he was over 6' so may have some problems with legs. Nick has another 72 Nova which is in a centrally heated garage with his buggy, said when he gets time ( have I heard that before :clapping: ) it will be progress in operation.

What did you think of the show Jim?

I was a bit dissapointed to be honest, It seemed much smaller than the last time I went. Mrs G was very taken with the TR3 replica so that's gone on the list (at about number eight!)

I had a look round your car and I was going to take loads of pictures. Unfortunately that didn't happen because the number 2 daughter decided to take the memory card out of my camera, without letting me know :(

Hi there jimcub i was admiring your photos of stafford and i noticed your nova and was wondering have you jacked up the back a bit or is it just the photo playing tricks? :confused1:

Chris the show was not worth the 10 entry, also I forgot to go back to a stall that had some coloured new sun roof boxes with what I could see a 10 price tag.

The back and front is raised as both back and front scraped getting in the drive and out and also on speedbumps, as MOT looms later this monthI need to get on the rollers without bottoming on the floor ( it was close last year ).

I did cameras with a group of children and when we got to digital, my son had taken the card out of my camera to use it in his. :argue:

Hi Jim

Good to meet you today, the weather was very kind to us but, as has been said, I think the 10 pounds entry fee was a bit over the top especiallly as I spent more time talking to the other car owners in the car park/club stands than looking around the stalls inside.

Best regards

Nick

Just noticed your comment about a 6ft 25 year old from Portsmouth that's just brought nicks nova well that would be ME! :clapping: the pedals are a wee bit snug but nick is trying to come up with a solution so the rails on the chair can push back a little. Even an inch would make all the difference so :crossfinger: .
