    Don't know why he hasn't marked it as such.
    Now off eBay.
    It would not surprise me, due to location, that the same guy that bought mine and Jimís car has bought this. If he did he has one hell of a collection !

    It's really tempting though, but I'm sure someone else will snap this one up quickly (if they haven't already!). IMHO this is probably the best Avante I've seen for sale in the past 5 years, and bearing in mind the private reg, it's a bargain!!!

    It's tempting but you have Nova blood in your veins, Alastair.
    I agree with 'er indoors about shifting the Vitara though, there will be a pristine blue Nova on there soon enough ;-)

    The advert said 1600 IIRC, which means it is probably a Type 3 (i.e. Beetle engine block, with the Type 4 style fan housing).

    Yes definately a type 3 engine, it's the same as I had in my original Nova which came out of a type 3 squareback. The engine is identical to the Beetle, it's just the cooling arrangement that was changed to make the engine flatter to allow a boot space to be created in the back of the type 3 above the engine

    Iíve been keeping an eye on his site and havenít seen Jimís Nova. I suspect the new owner was lined up without any need to advertise

    Was just looking at the eBay site for the Sheffield company which bought Buffyís Nova and I see Jimís Nova (with new reg no) in the background of the photos of the red AC Cobra kit. I suspect that theyíre Ďoldí photos and that a buyer was lined up already because theyíve not actually advertised Jimís Nova and several buyers were interested in Buffyís Nova.

    Nice to see Jimís Nova again ... hope she went/goes to an appreciative new owner
