    I'm still alive

    Just wanted to pup up on here. Not been around for a couple of years. I parked my nova up in 2019 due to an oil leak. Finally stripped engine last year and diagnosed a knackered crank. Forward 6 month or so a new crank was found and still sat in its wooden box near the nova.

    I've had my nova almost 20 year now

    Hoping to get back on it soon!

    Warm welcome back Keith!!

    Glad to hear you’ve still got your Nova and looking forward to hearing how you get on with the engine, especially as the better weather’s not too far away.

    Although saying that this nova has survived 6 house moves and 3 seriouse relationships. So maybe I like it a bit!

    Relationships that last a long time aren't easy. After the initial lust they generally require lots of patience, compromise and forgiveness, and after a while companionship becomes more important. I reckon it sounds like you're in this relationship for the long haul Keith

    First wife 27 years, current wife 20 years, car 26 years.

    Great thing is "Still alive", so many of us are no longer able to claim that and at 75 I appreciate the hell out of it every day.

    First and only wife, 40 years and counting, and I've only had my Nova 13.5 years. Mind you I did have a brief 2 year fling with another Nova back in the 1980's..
