    The original LP500 is still one of my favourite cars, but I agree this is perhaps not it's most flattering angle. I guess my all-time favourite Countach has to be Red #2, later painted green and the...

    Hi Alistair - as you say, the out-of-flat is not that great, in fact for my Elam Mk1 canopy, the passenger side glass fits absolutely flat, it is the driver's side aperture that is out-of-flat.

    Ooh, hello! He's gone all Countach :D

    You know the reason why Lamborghini ended up with a 3-piece side window is because they kept breaking the fixed pane of the 2-piece design. I spent many a...

    I forgot to mention, the cut glass headlamp covers, although an excellent idea in principle, will not fit the Nova without bodywork modifications. The reason is that the headlamp apertures are not...

    Those seat shells look like original ADD items - they started with a low back and then around 1974 the green demo car sprouted headrests, like the extensions to your shell. Slightly different to my...

    Good point - as far as I know Don Law (Nova Shop) did not supply body panels in coloured gel coat, so if the orange colour is self-coloured fibreglass I would say the car is an ADD Mk1 or possibly a...

    Wow - nice find!

    My car had a Type 4 when I bought it. Looks tough as old boots, but still only 74 bhp :D

    I look forward to seeing both of your cars on the road soon, although not at the same...

    I don't think my Nova had steering stops either, although it has been nearly 31 years now so my memory is a bit hazy.

    What I do recall is that with the offset on the Wolfie Turbovecs and 195...

    That's right Steve - manual canopy too, you can see the Austin Maxi gas rams. The seat shells are interesting because they show that ADD produced the highback variant before the Elams took over. But...

    It's a French Scobra I believe. But clearly derived from the Puma one-piece body shell moulding. I don't dislike it either, but my personal preference would be a removable hard top, but better still...
