Strange, there doesn't seem to be any record of a Ford car with that registration on the DVLA database...? :?:

Just out of interest, is this the original number plate or a later one that's been added? DVLA has it with a date of first registration of 03 December 2003, which is very late and way after they were finished making them (although the year of manufacture is stated as 2002) and there were no Thunders ever registered before 51 plate (the earliest registered Thunders I know of is Nov 2001). Also, nothing on etis for this plate.

LOL. Just out of interest, how did you find the cross reference for the new plate? I spotted the old plate on etis (which gave the reg date) but, of course, the old plate no longer shows on the DVLA public search. Or was it one you just knew about, or is it/was it one of yours? ;-)

Yeah, I thought I'd quote the original reg number in case any former owners still frequent the forum. I am very impressed with Ian G's knowledge though.

HT51 JVY. Grey 1.7 125k miles

Just bought "Stormie". Not the best example of a Puma; she has some cuts and bruises, bumper a bit chewed and one headlight needs replacing. However, she was a joy to drive...until glue(?!) holding in the brake servo hose came undone. As soon as the brakes are safe again, I'll have her out on the road and start fixing her up bit by bit. Not too shabby for a first car though, especially after wanting a Puma for over 15 years :grin:

YS51MWV 20k miles silver.

This car has been dry stored for the last 14 years.
Didn't take much to get her back on the road. New fuel pump and battery and she started straight. Then needed 2 news ABS sensors on the front and some wipers to get her through an MOT
Since then, 4 new tyres, full service including new cam belt, and she drives like a new car.

No rust anywhere!

Cannot tell you how pleased I am
