Great idea, there should be a club for Nova Sports. I am 18 and I own an original Sport, one problem - some idiot changed the engine for a 1.6i GTE conversion, but the original kit is still on it.

I have a nova sport and know where there is another approx 2 miles from me. I think there was a lot more than 500 odd made, as in my town there was at least 6 at one time. Still they are very rare now. My own car is standard apart from 6x14 compamotive TH wheels, hopefully someone will start a club??? as my car sits in its heated garage for most of the year, when I take it out now all the boy racers don't know what it is, they think it's a silly looking nova with stickers & noisy ex.BUT I KNOW BETTER.

I've recently bought a nova sport, no graphics pack as had a good quality re-spray. It's great fun having a car that looks like a standard 1.2 nova, but will blow away most modern hot hatches, especially now it runs on K&N filters and uprated suspension!

I'm looking into replacing the graphics pack now though.

"0-60 in 6.5 seconds" how the hell you got a figure like that is beyond me!

You must have some serious mods under the hood for 0-60 times under 7 seconds in a nova sport!

Those sorts of performance figures aren't far of a c20let (2.0 turbo) engined nova!

Try a bit more like 9 seconds!

Yes it is 0-60 in 6.5 seconds, down to the very special gearbox.

I used to own a Nova Sport which I sold 2 years ago, they are a great little car and are brilliant to drive. They may not be amazingly fast, but they sound absolutely amazing at full throttle!

I am currently on the look out for a new Sport as I am missing my old one. If anybody has or knows of a genuine Sport, regardless of condition for sale please let me know.

My e-mail address is richardsillett@yahoo.co.uk

I am happy to help anybody with any info needed on Sports.

I am currently on the look out for an original Nova Sport, regardless of condition, as I would like one for restoration; even just some parts so I can build up one.

I have been trying to locate my old Nova Sport C110KCK. Would love to buy it back, no matter what condition, even if it's just the log and VIN. Any help would be awesome!

C110KCK lives in Northern Ireland now.

That number plate would not be legal in another country. My guess is that he currently holds a new number plate. I think I am correct.

You can use UK registration numbers in Northern Ireland, just as you can use Northern Irish numbers in the UK.

What condition is she in, and whereabouts in the world did she end up? I still have some original spares and paper work for that car. Would love to buy her back.

Only reading this now! The car's in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Hasn't been on the road for donkeys years. What bits have you got?!!

Do you still have your Nova Sport?
