    My first car was a 1.3 Nova SR, loved it, brown tartan seats! I wanted one of these, but couldn’t afford the insurance.

    I can’t imagine there are many of these left now.

    Hated Nova's back in the day...but like the look of that. Looks immaculate.

    I'll check my savings account:grinning:

    Funny, my insurance was cheaper on the sport, than on a SR or GSI

    Funny I was talking to my friend about this last night, hes a Nova head and yes its a very rare car indeed finding the 'correct' parts for these is a major task, having seen one fully restored a few years back at the NEC it really is a thing of beuty and im not a nova fan never had one.

    Had a Nova SR back in '85 & never really gelled with it so sold it 18 months later. A week after I placed the order this sport edition was announced, but dealer wouldn't let me change my order. Never mind as I wouldn't have kept it. My wife too had a Nova briefly years before we met & hated it. Should've learned a lesson, but bought an Astra GTC in '02 as a 2nd car & we both loathed that too! Never buying another Vauxhall (unless someone offers me a very cheap VX220 track toy)!

    Couple of years of early retirement.
    Half a mortgage paid off for some people.
    Nice car and £50k in savings.
    Or some metal that's much more serious than a Nova.

    And the auction hasnt actually finished yet of course either....


    Looks like plenty of serious bidders too. I dont see any 0-rated shill-bidding at the sharp-end.

    Looking at the guys feedback seems he as over rated some of his cars he sold previously, plus the RS Fiesta looks expensive to....hmmm

    Holy moly i wasn't even born then :fearscream:

    When i was a nipper Novas were everywhere i never see them anymore. Being in classic cars i can tell you that a car is worth whatever anyone is prepared to pay on the day the price does go down as well as up...looks like this is a good day for the owner.
