Speculators!!!!

You have to remember that everyone wants the 1.7, and the 1.6/1.4 are getting forgotten and scrapped all too readily. Happens all the time.......Escort RS was the big news once and now any mk1 escort is fair game............1990s XR please, now its any Fiesta/escort3/sierra. The 1.4 may never be wor...

Twenty Years

Don't know about the prototypes but every registration number I've seen on cars featured in the motor mags at launch are either no info or not taxed in ages, not even showing as sorn. Unforuanately my P reg needs some work but only has 80K on the clock. In January I bought a December 97 R reg with o...

Twenty Years

I'll be cracking open a can of diet coke on July 7th when my oldest Puma turns 20 years from registration, actually built June 25th. I'm hoping that our stand can do the car proud. I'm even considering bringing the P reg along on a trailer for the stand if that's allowed.

03 reg Puma , any such thing.

oilburner wrote:Qr Bbpost I've seen an 03 plate one, new at the dealer I worked at. It was green with no A/C so it was very hard to shift.


I think that's also the reason my red one was sold so late as it has no air con or heated screen or lecky mirrors.I have the original bill of sale and it was about £11,000.

03 reg Puma , any such thing.

My 02 runabout red is only 3 weeks short of being a 52 reg, but was built in June 01. Being a,Base model I suspect it was a bit hard to sell compared with the lux models. I have seen a few 52 plate cars but has anyone ever seen an 03 reg. Any such car would be quite a good show car gimmic. Bit like ...

my latest purchase

Red would have been a common colour choice new as it was a "free" colour, unlike the metallic. Buy a silver one if you really want to blend in with the crowd. :grin: Thunder only came in silver or grey and had Fiesta Zetec S mk5 type alloys and leather seats. Never any red Thunders and I d...

Later Puma rust quicker?

356291 and can't think why It's because every journey has a driver, but not always a passenger. Unless its a Volvo/BMW/Audi/Range Rover company car and then its just got a complete twat sitting in the seat without a care for anyone else on the road. On the age/rust thing.,.

Lost locking wheel nut key

Get a 19mm multi point socket and hammer it gently over the locknut, you should then be able to undo them as per normal. I did this with all 4 on a puma I bought and forgot to check the adapter was With the car.

Had a knock on the passenger rear side of the car since I got it and replaced the strut top bush as there seemed to be some play, no luck, still there. I have now replaced the axle beam bushes with polybushes as I found the originals, especially the passenger side were shot to bits. No knocks or ban...

So there I am in my electricity company Ford Ranger last Wednesday late afternoon and I spot a silver Puma with a very familiar looking BCL reg number driving down Norwich Street in Fakenham. Nice to see it in the metal, even if it was for only a few seconds. May have noticed a lot of white vans on ...

The red 02 1.7 MOT is up at start of August and I know it needs the inner sill welding at the rear arch on the driver side, so before welding it up only to find a load of other stuff is needed for MOT I decided to throw it to the MOT monster today.
