I had the chance to have a go in one of these nearly 10 years ago now, still remember giving it the beans on some quiet roads around Crook.

Surprisingly well setup car out of the box, great engine with loads of mid range and an awesome soundtrack

Enjoy it fella, I’m subbed for updates and more pictures

I've never been a Vauxhall fan, however apart from the front bumper that looks sweet.
It looks like a very nice example of a sought after vehicle.

Lovely Jubbly matey, nice to see an old school bit of motoring, not too old, but not new enough, you probably know what I mean matey.

That looks awesome mate. Had a brochure for these which turned into a poster when they first came out. Was on my bedroom wall for years!

Can't believe you sold the Nova though! ��
