    Tobias, I have a feeling I know your car too ... is she XWH 908L ?

    If so, here's a couple of photos I took of her in 1990. I have a feeling that her rear end has been modified since then .... I'm sure I've seen a video on You Tube which shows it's changed since my photo. The other one has my Nova (OSA 101H) sitting in front of her.

    Anyway, looking forward to hearing all about her .... what a find!!

    Very nice nova, should be an easy fix and back on the road. Seems to have a good history as well.

    Come on, spill the beans on the back story, and what are the issues, if any ?

    Haven't had a chance to get in on the ramp yet due to working nightshifts (I don't get up until early evening). However the gearshift is very finicky and the reversing lights come on even when it isn't in reverse gear. The clutch pedal is also stiffer than i'd like.
    Seals are gone around roof and side windows have gone south, however for now the stuff i've seen is only either small fixes or cosmetics.
