    Complete Running Nova (been sat in a garage for 14 yrs)

    He's looking for £4.5k, not run for 14 years but recently restarted. Looks promising. Details on ebay ....

    They don't turn up looking that complete that often, so good for someone looking

    I may go and see this- it would take the pressure off me rushing to get mine finished!

    Its registered as a Volkswagen under make but model blank.
    Still a saloon but that's OK, number of seats blank.

    Thats what is on the v5 but on Mot history it says Volkswagen Beetle, but that must
    have been because the mot tester needed to put in something 15 years ago?
    It's exempt now anyway.

    I think just saying Volkswagen would be ok? For example if police spotted me it wouldn't say beetle on their database if its based on V5 info.

    It is still a Volks of course, it wouldnít say or resemble a beetle, so it shouldn't confuse them.

    Am I overthinking it? Feel like it writing this

    My V5 used to have the car listed as make=Volkswagen, Model=Sports but I was able to get it changed to say Make=Nova

    I think there are plenty of Beach Buggies registered simply as Volkswagen so I don't think it's an issue to stay as it is but you can probably get it updated

    Thanks Phil,
    I took my Nova out of the garage for the first time in a while yesterday and made a lot of progress!
    I may even have it close to driving which Iíll update on a separate thread. So may not need the other car now.
    Curveball though- 99 up for sale!!!

    Hi Dave,

    He re-advertised it with a starting price of £3k instead of the original £4.5k. Iím pretty sure it didnít stay on eBay for the full length of the auction, but I donít know whether he sold it or not. Maybe he saw Markís Gulf Nova and decided it might be worth restoring his own Nova himself?

    I see youíre consider swapping your Mk1 Escort for a kit car? Are you thinking about another Nova or something else?

    Hope allís well with you and the Golf Cart

    Alistair
