    Sadly!

    Hi

    Its been a while, but my Nova is now on ebay. Unfortunately the last two years have been horrendous and ended in divorce and i have lost my garage where both my Nova and my Beach Buggy lived. I am now in London full time and that means that my Nova that i have spent years getting all the bits for has had to go as i cannot store it anywhere. I hope that i may be able to save my Beach buggy and have it in the garage in Red Ruth at the moment being MOT'd and sorted out.

    I would love it to go to one of you guys if at all possible.

    I would also seriously consider a straight swap of both my buggy and the Nova for a Nova that is on the road as i can afford (just) to store one vehicle

    let me know as i am more than willing to remove the car from the dreaded bay!

    Regards

    Ant

    Sorry to hear that Ant, thought I recognised the rear bumper.

    just the wrong time for me unfortunately as have recently sourced a Nova shell and chassis. Shame, as yours does have all the bits I am missing :-(

    good luck with the sale
    All the best,

    re my car

    Thanks Jim

    Im devastated (literally and mataphorically) by this, my life has been blown apart and literally trying to catch the pieces has been terrible. i just couldn't afford to store my personal belongings and my cars as well as my precious Nova.

    Devastated personally and just seeing my car on ebay has had me in tears twice this evening

    Horrible

    Hi Ant, sorry to hear about you domestic problems, it aways sucks, been there done that but at least I am still friends with the EX, "Me or the car" was the wrong thing to say.
    I know someone who would collect the car and rebuild it it BUT it would cost quite a bit as he a professional buggy and kit car specialist, (and in Belgium), currently doing two Eagle SSs.

    Ant,
    PM me as I could store it for you for a period of time, plus I'm just outside the M25 in Thurrock.

    Hi Ant.

    I hope you don't sell your nova as its clear you don't want too.

    Good luck in saving it

    Also good luck with getting your life back on track. Its fair to say a few of people on here have had their own ups & downs with life so understand your frustration.

    As they say "it an't over till the fat lady sings". I'm not sure what its got to do with a fat lady but you get my drift.

    If you heard my 'fat lady' sing, you would want it to be over, believe me.
    There is one HUGE plus at being divorced, FREEDOM, actually TWO, you can bonk any one willing.

    I know the sad feeling at having to give up a nova, still I get to see it on the forum to keep me smiling.
