Nosey Nova

I was driving to work today, coming off a roundabout onto a dual carriageway a modded Nova floors it to pull alongside me before having to break and fall behind for the slower car in front of him.

He then kept me in sight but wasn't crowding me, like boy (and girl) racers do most of the time. So I dropped it down a gear as I figure he was appreciating the noise more than trying to race me.

After about a mile I take my exit to go into work and he follows! Turns out he works in the same place (a few thousand ppl work there)! He caught up with me after we both parked and said how he loved the sound it made and we got chatting about our cars, quite rare to see a Nova on the roads still so it was an interesting conversation and another friend made!

To all the non-brits, this is a Vauxhall Nova, classic hot(?) hatch:

Hi Spud

Well when you get the xpipe fitted ask him over again to see what he thinks & watch his face

Cheers
