    How many Novas are there in Scotland?

    Hi all,

    Well, there's me, Phill, Gmacz, and someone he mentioned in Dundee who's Nova's unlikely to be roadworthy in the near future.

    As a former Club Nova Scottish Rep (25 yrs ago!!) I'm curious to find out if there are any other Novas in Scotland .... ??

    Cheers,

    Alistair

    Gosh! ... it'll be a while before I get mine on the road but that one in Wick might take a wee bit longer

    And it looks like they've been trying to encourage it to mate with some Ferguson tractor parts - that's definitely an axle casing in front of it, and possibly the front wheels holding the body down so it can't escape......
    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!

    Well, obviously there isn't many Novas there in Scotland, otherwise it would be called Nova Scotia...

    MicksRedNova used to reside in Scotland. I collected it from a place called Carluke just south of Glasgow where it had sat in the garden rotting away for about 12 years.
    The chassis that was under it in Scotland was scrapped when I started re-building it in 2004 and soon the body will be recycled into a trailer by Bushboy, but the roof, sidepods and front under tray will live on in MRN2.

    MicksRedNova2 may take as long as the original!!

    There was a complete car for sale in Armadale not far from me some time ago. A project car - not a runner, but it looked complete. I don't know if it ever sold, if it had I would have thought the buyer would have posted about it here - so I expect it's still sitting rotting in someones garden. Trouble is I don't know the address but will keep an eye out for it
