    couldn't resist!

    Depends what exactly you want to do with it? 1/4 miles? track days? etc.

    Excuses! - or is it mid-life crisis?!

    So waddya thinking of doing with it? What engine is it?

    If you stripped it out and popped in a roll cage, tweaked/dropped in a bigger engine you could have a really fun track car.

    cage, single seat and calibra turbo lump seems popular. with 6 speed box imagine the power to weight ratio.

    Depends on what sort of cash you want to throw at it. Got to keep it looking Factory in my opinion. I has a Nova SR D reg so it had the old slab front, loved it to bits but the arches rusted clean though. Replaced it with a Pug 205 1.4 XS and TBH the Pug was a far superior car but I still has a spot in my heard for a nice Nova. If I had the funds a Z20LET would have to be fitted, sprayed Arden Blue. I think i'd try to make a VXR Nova (but without the badges). I'd have to look factory though and very clean lines.

    Nar, one in the front and one in the rear for some 4 wheeled action and neck snapping acceleration.
