The life of NINA
NINA is my FTO. This site is made to enable family and friends to view the pictures and life of this amazing car. So, as a first attempt at a website, this is designed as functional and not flash.
The name NINA did not take long. For those who watched the series 24, you will understand. Nina was a nasty aggressive bitch. The letters NENA were also the original number plate letters (close enough).
I had spent a lot of time researching the type of car I wanted. The criteria was simple. Small, fast, fun and of course look good!! A few cars were short listed, but following a quick drive in an FTO - that was it. Sold. Also, a big thank you must go to all the websites about the FTO. Lots of info, with people willing to share ideas.
All I had to do now was find "the one". I had decided on manual (not coz I dislike auto as I currently drive one, just want to go back to gears), Black or Moonlight Blue and GPX or Type R (I definitely wanted the MIVEC engine). Many nights were spent searching the web. Finally, NINA was found.
NINA is a Moonlight Blue, manual, GPX, 1996. Added extras are an HKS Induction Kit, HKS Superdrager exhaust, Momo steering wheel, OZ Superleggera Alloys with 215 x 35 ZR18 tyres.
This is what she looked like on day one (dirty!).

Is the car what I expected? Absolutely - and then some. Small (but not a two-seater, I have had 5 people in it!!, and the boot is big enough for shopping!!), Fast - oh yes - 200Bhp if you did not know, Fun - great to drive and I think it looks great.
