    Bargain Nova Project

    I have done it, Pickup another Nova to add to my collection. Got it for a steal really, the previous owner couldn't make up his mind to sell it or not so I helped him out with an offer he could not refuse.

    Mrs Bushboy is not too impressed I must tell you but it was fathers day after all.

    I'm not going to touch the body work as it is OK as it is, just needs a wash & polish. It was running a year ago or so But I think the weather has got into the motor. I do have a spare V6!!!!!!

    Pictures later, need to develop the film.

    Can't wait to see the pictures, and hope you remembered to put film in the camera?

    Apart from that - how's the golfcart coming along?

    The Golfkart has, unfortunately, been pushed to the back burner as Daughter was accepted into the West End Kids Song & Dance Troupe. Her work load is massive and the WEK parents spend a lot of time transporting our Kids around the country to perform or altering and making props.

    The new project will be hiding at the bottom of the garden until the Golfkart is mobile again.

    Pics soon.

    Well, I commented on Dan's rainy photo earlier this evening .... but I didn't see that coming!!

    Looking forward to following your thread once you get the GolfKart off your hands.

    Congratulations Bushboy (and Dan!)

    No I didn't buy it off Dan, but I did make him an offer he couldn't refuse😂,

    It is next in line after the golf kart.

    I can't afford to do what I want with the Eureka due to the money pit that us my daughter, so I may as well do OP's for the time being.

    Dan's car really does deserve to be reliable and on the road and at the shows. Its so unique its been a real shame it hasn't run right since he purchased it. It kinda feels like its gonna be a couple of silly things that were overlooked and that's all it needs to run.......time will tell.

    Well done Bushboy
