This is one sweet-as-a-nut Nova, a real time warp car that reminds us why we all fell in love with the model to begin with. It’s covered a mere 19,642 miles since it was built in ’86, all of them by careful owners. This hasn’t prevented Ben putting his own stamp on the car, though he has stuck to easily reversible modifications. The biggest change is a set of FK coilovers, though they’re not wound down too far, just enough to cut down on bodyroll. There are also Astra GTE ‘teardrop’ alloys, Ben’s choice to see him through the gritty winter months.
