Brownnova’s eponymous vehicle... where to start on the Brown Nova?


Recommended Posts

I mostly blame @cms206 for this... 

 

But @davidfowler2000 deserves an honourable mention... as do others who added to the peer pressure too ( @Floatylight @Ghosty @rml2345 @Inspector Morose I’m looking at you)  



So... 

A little over a month ago at the FoD gathering some  free Haynes manuals were offered by @Slowsilver out the back of a Maxi... I picked one up for old times sake... 

And tomorrow the car to go with it arrives.

Typical AS behaviour. Everyone else buys a car then gets a manual for it, but not us. We do it the other way round. Hoped that the free manuals would be of use to someone but didn't expect any of them to lead to the actual purchase of a (hopefully) complete car. And a brown saloon for maximum shite points. Good luck with it and hope to see it soon.

Novas have a lot of childhood memories - my parents had one in the early 90s. One oft-repeated tale is when my father pulled off the drive and the car stalled and would not restart. He was cursing and fiddling, 3 year old me apparently shouted from the back seat "Daddy look, you've run out of petrol" pointing to the gauge. He was rather embarrassed as a relative was dispatched to bring back a gallon of four star.
