It isn't an NA.
If you look at the VIN photo in the ad, it has a 6 to indicate the engine. According to wikiLEC, that means a turbo engine.

I'm guessing that NM isn't Norfolk Mustard either - or New Mexico.

Come on FunElan, what does it mean? :poke:

At one time, I seem to remember a comment here on LEC about an "NA" that was created via a turbo delete. There's no photos of the engine in this post - I wonder if this is said vehicle.

Apologies to everyone that I assumed knew this acronym....on every other car forum I've been on, "NM/NA" always stood for "not mine, no affiliation." Meant to imply that I have nothing to do with this car, I just spotted it on the interwebs :-D
