Great restoration.

Awesome. I've never been a fan of Nova's but that is superb.

My first thoughts were if I'm honest, why bother.

How wrong was I.

Very well done guys and you can see why you have and will clean up at the shows.

As said many times before its absolutly stunning, real credit to you and your dad.

And its a real ******* trying tp get a really good reflection on a white car isnt it!,
Hello mate!! Thanks for the comments, white isn't the best colour to get a shine on, even the Zaino Z8 struggles to make an impression.

Loving your Nova too mate, one of the nicest on the scene...

The car was photographed for Total Vauxhall magazine, and will appear in issue 93, Jan 2009. Here are a few pics from the day...


(Pics taken on my crappy camera!!) lmao






The studio use 'skates' to move the car into position - bloody good idea!!




















Towards the end of the day we even tried to replicate the shot from the original Nova Sport brochure..... should be a nice pic :nod:







I even shot a couple of videos to capture the atmosphere in the studio:








Rgds,
Dec
