shitty little vauxhaul car driven by a pikey
. a nova can usually be purchased for about £150, but in order to be fully functional it needs to be filled with £8,000 worth of stolen stereo equipment (it's a well known fact that the engine in an average 1989 nova is not powerful enough to propel the vehicle up a small incline, and therefore the movement generated by some 'pumpin happy hardcore bass' is required to complete most journeys).
most novas are driven repeatedly around the ring roads of deadbeat english towns like mansfield and aldershot. presumably this is because the steering columns are all bollocksed so they can only turn in one direction.
the classic nova is now an endangered species due to the proliferation of the lesser-rusted saxo in many towns.
kevin's got a new nova, it's well bazzed up. ee's bringin' it raahnd t'circuit on sundeh
