    Additional Info

    Is this your first Vauxhall?

    I have owned Vauxhalls since I passed my test at 17. My first car was a 1990 Nova Diamond in metallic blue; second car was a Nova Diamond with a GSi bodykit. I had an SRi Cavalier at one time, and just a few years back a star silver GSi came up - a mate was selling it was a daily driver and really got me hooked on Novas again. So then I bought my diamond black GSi

    What is your favourite aspect or modification of the car?

    My favourite aspect of the car is that it has the original bill of sale and a full Vauxhall service history, and only 87k on it

    Is the car a daily drive, or do you keep it for special occasions?

    The car is only out on special occasions - it did 300 miles last year

    Do all your friends/family/coworkers think you're mad for driving a Nova?

    They all laugh but when they see it they soon change there opinion, they say its class.

    What future plans do you have?

    No real future plans, just a few wee odds and ends to do - get the original number plates back on, new b-piller vinyl I bought via ade and a Honda Jazz rear wiper from Chris, but thats it.


    My dad and all the lads at the shed for all the help and long hours to get it where it is today
