    Default evening all

    evening chaps

    will be looking to be buying a tow vehicle to move my nova about so being a vauxhall fanboy ive obviously went for the vectra

    i drive a nova atm, 1990 G reg originaly a 1.0 4 speed (couldnt pull the skin off a rice pudding) converted it to a 1.4 8v and got bored quick

    its currently running a 2.0 8v 20seh from a mk2 cav with an autosprint cam p&p head, r1 carbs with bog bros manifold and a 2" magnex with a 4-2-1

    currently building a c20xe to the same spec

    its running a megajolt ecu using the ford edis module for the spark (no dizzy)

    anyway its currently my daily car which isnt the best due to fuel prices and no exactly the comfiest and i have a 3 year old son to shift about

    my plan is to convert it to a track car, i.e. stripped caged etc

    my plan is to buy a 54-55 plate vectra 1.9cdti as they seem to be the best for towing and pretty good on fuel

    this is my current car




    i know nova's have a bad name and by no means am i a "boy racer" my car is built not bought

    looks like a lot of hard work has gone into it fella, like the gte wheel's but guess you had to go the the ST ones for brake reasons...lol

    have you seen the prices for original sport parts are? lol

    for example, heater blanks in brown basicly just a rectangle piece of plastic go for £40+

    also the seats are rare as hens teeth

    yeah i know how expensive they are hence only a handfull of em about, one of my all time fav nova's i must say,

    must admit i wish i had kept to my nova lux, i tried to use it as a work car but it was that solid and in great condition i couldnt do it for long so sold it on for someone to enjoy and keep totaly standard...
