    Thanks Giles - you sound surprised? They let in a Mk1 Escort (actually they let in two, and several Lotus Cortinas), so I think the Nova has better supercar credentials than that :D

    Dowty seals for me - that's a steel compression washer with a rubber seal bonded onto the inside diameter.

    Thanks Alistair - I must admit it was a bit nerve-racking but I would have been kicking myself if I hadn't gone. It was a worthwhile exercise if only to collect calibration data for the Nav computer...

    Hmm. It's a Mk1 body I think, with a later Mk4 (Sam Cobley era) rear panel. Also has more than its fair share of Mk1 side pockets (3???), and at least one Mk3/4 large side pocket as well.

    Probably the same one that turned away a brand new Lexus LFA because it looked too "normal" to be a supercar. Advantage Nova :D
