    In memoriam

    Cecil Robertson, co-founder of California Component Cars, passed away today at age 80 from cancer. His nephew mentioned that his short time on Facebook with the west coast Sterling group always brought him joy seeing the cars being used and enjoyed. And it couldn't have happened without the Nova..

    That is sad news. With the best will in the world, neither Richard Oakes or Phil Sayers had a vision for the Nova as a product. CCC had that vision, with good marketing and excellent after-sales advice to builders, and the sales figures reflected that. Richard and Phil may have started the ball rolling, but Cecil and Norm managed to take the Nova into the most lucrative market in the World - the USA.

    RIP Cecil.
