Puma Production Line

This Puma and Mk4/5 Fiesta seem to be the last of the 'rustty' Fords, everything that came after (Focus etc) seems much better. True, but also think they were the last of the interesting cars. The new stuff are fine vehicles but they seem to have lost their edge (no pun intended). The days of quirk...

Puma Production Line

Where do you work, on what cars and what is your line speed? They really don't like you talking about it on social media, you can get sacked if you badmouth them online, but lets just say it rhymes with Sand Clover and its in Liverpool. Our speed is a bit slower, 92s, 40 an hour is roughly what we ...

Puma Production Line

Curious what the line speed was like for them, how often they came down etc. We used to make 3 door and convertible variants in my work but they would come down infrequently, they were normally a pain. Wonder if the guys making the puma thought the same.

I work on a car production line so this kind of stuff interests me. Does anyone have any more images of them being built?

Maybe they can call in the pooma? Like cougar and kuga, just to confuse people.

Puma may make a return......

Heard it all before. Every few years a new puma is rumored, same as a new capri. If it is an SUV like it says then its just a cash-in on the name.

Help, clutch clip

It just looks like a spring clip? Not sure where you are but there is a chain of shops called J.R Websters, there is one near me, they are good for stuff like that.

Less than 6000 left in the UK

I remember when i had my original puma you could get an FRP for <£5000. Your looking at 3 times that now, if you can even find one.

Puma always felt like a car that didn't get the recognition it deserved in its own time, maybe one day it will be seen as a lost classic.

Did a search on howmanyleft, and by my count there are less than 6000 left. Drop over the last couple of years has been massive. They're getting to the point were the only people likely to have them are enthusiasts.

Market prices

Low mileage cars make me wonder if these cars are used for a lot of short journeys. I know a low mileage looks appealing, but I thought that repeated short trips weren't good for an engine? Not giving the engine time to warm up properly etc. Especially if occurring on a regular basis? Not to say th...

Market prices

There are cars that come alone and sometimes they just don't quite connect with the public despite being good cars. The original corrado and scirocco come to mind. I think this is still the case with the puma, too many of the jeremey Clarkson crowd still think of it as a hairdressers/girls car. The ...

Weird. If i search for 'spare wheel tray' which is my original search, it just times out, but other things seem ok.
