Pocket Rocket Power For Cheap Money — great starting point for modifying, ease of parts, but finding a good one nowadays is rare. seriously fun in standard form but to get the full potential from this car spend money and get the 2 litre 16 valve engine

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: speed, looks, power

Cons: build quality

Vauxhall Nova Sting — Handled exceptionally well, very light-weight but felt like sitting in a tin can. The fact that it was a sports edition probably helped. Build quatlity not excellent, but fine for the type of car. Reasonably cheap to run around town, not so good on long journeys. Parts very cheap - biggest bill less than £300.

Pros: Small, light, cheap

Cons: Bad reputation

Cons: Unrefined (but it was a Nova, who cares)

The First Car I Ever Bought. Loved It Then, Wish I Still Had It. — Bit of a Max Power chav stigma attached to the Nova SR now, but in its day. Great car for not much money.

Pros: Huge fun

Cons: Had to sell it for Marriage!!!

Iconic 80's Supermini By Craig3405

I hate the sunroof squeak, it makes the build quality seem worse than a Saxo. The heating is poor. My final drive in the gearbox is too high, making motorways a chore. I actually find it hard to pa... Read More
