    Under For sale, Red nova in Watford.
    Has anyone found out any more on this car ?
    Its probably the best way to go, and put your mark on it. As people have already expressed., fully up and running is hard to find but this could be the starter.
    Just a thought and good luck with whatever you find.

    Would be interesting to see what state it is in and if / how it runs if anyone has any more details.

    Welcome back to the land of wet long weekends & liquid sunshine.

    Sounds like your not afraid of spanners so you should find your self a project soon. Be lucky if you actually find a road worthy one first up, but....

    Welcome back Alan, I hope you find a suitable project soon. Your previous Nova history is very interesting, it sounds like the blue spaceframe car was one of the three mid-engined chassis made by Sam Cobley. I wonder where it is now...?

    I got the space frame from Keith Stringer together with the blue body (unmated). I don't think it was a Sam Cobley one, as the amount of cutting of the body to drop it on was a lot. I think Dam am would have got I to drop on a lot easier.

    I've got the body Sam was experimenting with, it was cut about A LOT!
    It's a 50 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!
