    Is it your picture in the article, right, @SlipZtrEm? You should post it in full-size, it looks really good :)

    Just got the Chevy Nova in daily workout, man it’s so much fun. Drove a few laps around Bathurst was pretty quick down the straight. Haven’t got the Ford F-150 Raptor yet looks like fun.

    The F40, the KTM and the Corvette are amazing to drive too, they have their own way to give fun. The Corvette is slower but sounds great (especially at high revs) and gives you a lot of sense of speed even before 200 km/h.

    Does the nova have an interior view?

    Yes it does. Looks really cool too. There's probably some videos on youtube.

    With the F-150 you can drive taking out the road the other normal cars, it's fun to do it at least once :) Like some popular GT4 videos ...
    Driving it normally is fun too, very pleasant and smooth.

    I like both of these vehicles & have put my own liveries on them. The one problem I have with the Nova is that I can't use it in the GT League races.
    It doesn't show as a usable car in FR, Premiere League or any other race it should qualify for.
    Is this an oversight because it's found in the Gran Turismo dealership & not in any of the normal ones or am I doing something wrong ?

    It is, yes. I'll have to get around to that at some point — between blog stuff and holiday shenanigans I've had to ignore livery and photo stuff for a while. :(

    The F150 is faster than the Focus ST at Suzuka East despite weighing nearly 3,000 lbs more. God bless that 6.2L engine.

    Also love how the RX-7 has a feature in cockpit view that makes a very annoying sound when it's time to upshift. I don't remember that in GT6.

    Much prefer the 6.2L v8 raptor, that sound is just music to my ears :)

    I like the Nova, but would rather a stock version. Same with the Buick Special, Art Morrison Corvette and Mustang Trans Cammer of previous games.
