    I have only just seen this thread, and read back through the previous comments ! If I had known I would have booked a trailer !!

    The Princess is coming out of retirement having been left whilst I build the lomax !!

    Dirk, your car looks stunning, and you have achieved so much with it that the car deserves the attention.

    Well done ....

    Well done Dirk - looking forward to reading this when the magazine comes out. I would love to have taken part but do not yet have the confidence in my car to drive it so far and do not have access to a towcar to allow me to hire a trailer

    The driving shots would have been interesting they would have had to photo shop the trailer out

    I bet the GP Madison was a soft-top, if it was the coupe variant you wouldn't be able to get into the thing, let alone see out of it
    That's nice of you to say, and yes a lot of work has gone into her as lots of our cars have, but to be honest our cars are not the easiest cars to drive and do get a bit of getting use to. I am sure that most people jumping into one for the first time and taking it for a spin would be a scary experience.

    A big thanks to Dirk, Ray & Gary for supporting all things Nova related.

    It pays to read all of the posts.

    One of the other highlights for me on the day of the photo shoot. I pulled out of the garage about 7.30am it was chilly and damp as it had rained all Sunday night and within a few minuets of driving the windscreen misted up, a quick flick of the blower switch with the new heater the windscreen was clear in seconds. I had that conversation with the owner of the Chesil and he said his heater was good as well, he had an Eberspacher but that cost him more than 3 times what I had paid for my Subaru donor car

    Really pleased you guys were able to support Jack and the magazine with this.

    I think people have seen enough of mine with the running reports so good to see others in print. I assume the Madison was Simon Skelding’s (ex Red 9 Design)?

    looking forward to seeing the article.
