Vauxhall Nova not cool......., back in 1990 the Nova GSi and earlier GTE were seen by many teens as being one of the coolest cars on the road. I had a brand new spanking H plate not to dissimilar to this one but in a nice dark silver colour
Perhaps by being the centre of attention of the Max Power fraternity, with ridiculous body kits (chrome wiper blades !!! aaaargh) and reckless driving habits the Nova's image was a little bit sullied.
By NOT placing GT on the Cool Wall you are effectively saying that Zaskars, Xizangs, Psyclones, Karakorum's, Bravado's, RTS's, LTS's, STS's, Lobo, Avalanche LE's, etc, etc, etc ARE NOT COOL. Sorry people but that just seems nonsensical. For any manufacturer to have such bikes in their line-up and NOT BE COOL makes me question the whole concept of a 'Cool Wall' Possibly certain people may have an instilled Brand Hatred or perhaps the company's domination and financial success in the 90's has made them in some peoples eye's appear common. But that's just it, exclusivity does not make something COOL
Why do you think GT was such a dominating force both commercially and competitively. People all around the world purchased these bike's in thousands and thousands. Do you think that when they went to the shop to buy them they thought, 'I want to buy something uncool, or mediocre, I know I'll buy a GT' The low end and mid range models were priced against rival bikes with similar if not better specs, then why did GT sell so many. By being uncool? Don't think so, do you?
