can't be!

1.2 nova's are 55bhp and even with being stripped out, wouldn't clock a 14.2!

They probably had 2.0 engine conversions from most probably the Calibra as that sounds about right for that sort of time

No way... 14.2 from a 1200cc Nova. Even stripped out I find that VERY hard to believe.

a 1200cc nova COULD NOT run a 14sec 1/4 mile,
there were starlet gt's and glanzas at the pod running 15ish second times so it just couldn't be possible

im not gonna say anymore on this i was there i saw it leeky was there he saw it.we were parked nest to the car for 2 hours we got a pretty good idea of what it was. btw he could lift up his car it wasnt heavy

one thing i learned from a rwyb is that we all go its jap it has to be faster than everything else thats just not true some of theses cars which u and i would laugh at were putting in serious times times to embarres most of us
