    COVID-19 happened and I don't have an indoor garage, so I was paying for garage space and storage. I simply couldn't afford it in the end with work nearly laying me off.

    There we also decisions I made financially that could have been done differently, but its uncertain times right now.

    There was a time when you were thinking of selling

    The car itself comes with a completed shell, windscreen, dual oil cooler, 2.3 high performance turnkey engine that needs to only be installed. Reconditioned high performance gearbox, wheels so it does roll, Roof canopy still works. All lines are braided steel.

    .....

    Well done Tobias! Hopefully you'll be able to get another Nova one day when circumstances improve. Could you possibly encourage the new owner to join the Forum (if they're not already a member).

    All the best, Alistair

    Touché, But that was bureaucracy changing, not me. I will finish it and be road going, again, but if I can legally drive it is another matter.

    Does anyone ever "finish" one of these projects? Hopefully not! I really did "finish" one project car, thankfully just one, my first, a Mk1 Ford Fiesta rebuilt write off. I saw the clock go over 100k, did 80k+ of those miles in it myself, very sadly the next owner was the scrapper. I waxoiled it to death, but it just rotted at the seams, 20 years of standing outside. The 2nd engine was still good. The first engine threw a ring and holed a piston leaving a very deep groove in the bore.

    Hi Red Vodka.

    Its a bummer when things force your hand & you have to sell.

    Building a Nova is a learning curve for all as they all turn out so different built on different budgets etc.

    I was thinking of selling mine at one point just to make room for my next project.

    Never give in & keep going onto the next project.


    Cheers

    New job forced my hand a bit, I still love the cars immensely and will attempt again in 5 or so years when I have a house with a garage!

    Sorry but that doesn't always help, I moved to a house with a double garage below and got less time on the car as I had to work my butt off to pay for the bloody house, now In a flat and car 40 Km away I do at least have an excuse but having to pay 145€ a month.
