    Hey Peter

    Unfortunately no, I'm off on holiday tomorrow so couldn't get down to see it this week, I live in hope that someone somewhere will get in touch as I have put a few Ads out ... £100 reward if they can find a Nova I buy lol.....like I say people's circumstances change all the time , I have cash burning a hole in my pocket for a Nova, I am going to see a Covin soon but my heart is saying Nova ...... A Nova will be mine...oh yes it will be mine ;-)

    Covin not Corbin Peter, but then again maybe its the Corbin Sparrow he's looking at, and to be honest I'd rather have ANYTHING than that!!

    Corvin it is, bloody Microsoft keyboard, hate it, going back to the Medion flat one asap. Corbin is interesting, in much the same way as a appendectomy is, without anaesthesia.

    The guys on this forum are well above slagging of other makes, in fact we have three side by side on here , what I said IS MY opinion on REPLICARS, I am with the makers when it comes to having their cars ripped off and usually badged as one of theirs, Novas, Eagles, Avantis etc stand on their own merits.
    PERSONALLY, I don't like Cobra or 7 copies, in my personal and ancient opinion they have contributed as much to the death of the kit car as much as legislation has. You can like whatever car you want but be prepared for the odd remark, sometimes very odd remark.

    Please avoid the thread "Alex's Ugliest Kitcar Contenders" if you are offended by personal opinions about other Non-Nova cars. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and one of the reasons we (forum members) are here is that we all agree the Nova is a beautiful car.
    I personally think the Porsche 356 Speedster thing looks like an upside down jelly mould and wouldn't want an original or a copy, but probably wouldn't mention that normally as I realise I'm a Philistine when it comes to design styling. As I get older I get less worried about who I upset, a trait common amongst a significant portion of Nova owners (who are mostly old(er)), sorry is that ageist?, and we tend to think we are making 'tongue in cheek' commentary for the entertainment of others, which may not be the case.

    I hereby unreservedly (retrospectively and in advance) apologise to Porsche, Covin, Corbin, and all the other manufacturers, owners and admirers of all the other cars that aren't a Nova, that I may make fun of on a public forum.

    Don't say it too loud - but isn't the Eagle really a replica Nova since it was based on the American Cimbria itself a derivative of the Sebring which was a Nova copy?

    well over the last 30 years I've had 2 Novas, a Covin & a Quantum 2+2 , a mk1 Escort, old minis and a few soulless boxes on wheels because I needed a cheap diesel for commuting but nothing can match how awesome I felt looking at the Nova especially as both had remote controlled canopy's ;-) ...so thanks to circumstance I am now on the hunt for another Nova ...sadly there are not many around well not in the "hardly needs anything done category" as a mechanic I'm not....so I will continue to look...I have bought a Wee motorbike to get around till a Nova hopefully comes my way..

    The argument as to which came first, the Stirling or the Cimbria goes on both side of the pond. Certainly the Nova is the daddy and the SS/ Cimbria follow similar lines but there the similarity stops. Even the two gull wing cars are quite diffent when gone into.
