Thread: Jimcub's nova for sale

  1. #1

    Jimcub's nova for sale

    Well we all say that it will never come but to me it has and too early, I have been ill with various things since 1998 but managed to save a nova and get her on the road.
    well now things have got serious and I am looking at lung cancer in the face, no know cure and life expectancy is not good. All those years of working in asbestos have taken their toll, been in hospital for 3 stays and 3 biopsies since end of January. Also had to turn down an op on my spine as I would not survive it, now have to live with that as well.

    As the song goes "Always look on the bright side of life"

    its on eBay with a lowish starting price, an easy fix is strip engine or bang another in and get it on the road. Stacks of spares to go with it as they are no use to me .

    sorry to be a bearer of sad news

    As I said to you a while back when you told me you had to let the Nova go it is such a shame and I hope your health improves. You have certainly provided a comprehensive description on eBay; I only wish I had the space for another Nova myself, and hope you get a good price for it.
    Good luck.

    Jim, it's really sad to hear about your predicament and the various complications. As your nova was your passion I'm sure this has been a very tough decision to have to let it go. Hopefully it will go to a good home.

    best of luck on your health issues

    On the Eagle forum we have had our unfair share of health related news over the past 12 months so I am sure I can speak for all the EOC guys and gals in wishing you the very best in your fight with the big C and our thoughts will be with you and your family.
    So unfair when life craps on you but fight back, a positive attitude is worth a lot and I hope the Nova gets a good home.
