    Hi all, no nova, but have always loved them. Due to retire at the end of the year, so may have time then for a project.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Care to share a bit more info, like where are you located, when did you fall in love with the Nova & have you had a close encounter with one?

    Hi Jemm,

    Welcome to the Forum! Would be interested to hear what you're looking for ... major rebuild, minor rebuild, road legal Nova? As you're probably aware from articles on the Forum, road legal Novas rarely come up for sale, but projects do appear from time to time. You'll find plenty of technical and moral support on the Forum, and some friendly banter too!

    Cheers, Alistair

    Hi Jem welcome to the forum. I bought my current car over ten years ago as a "retirement" project and set it to one side awaiting retiral when I would have the time to work on it. Then a few years ago my son prompted me into action by saying if you wait until you've retired you'll never be able to get in it, so I've spent the last 3 years rebuilding it. Still not retired yet, it's still not finished, but I can still get into it...

    Loved Nova's since I first saw one in 'Custom Car' magazine I think it was, many years ago. Never seen a nova in real life, but trying to plan a trip to Stoneleigh this May.
    I live and work in West Wales at the moment, but plan to move to the borders after we retire.
    Have been looking at the Pie Valley VW replacement chassis, now with a VW mid engine replacement, rather than the MG. Looks very interesting and I think would make a great rebuild for an old rotted out original floor pan. What do you guys think?
