Hi Guys & Gals !

I joined the forum a few weeks back and thought it was about time I introduced my new Project - a Joint venture with my Son (enhancing our passion for cars by working on one together !)

So the Plan was to choose a car as close to the 1000 Kg mark as possible and then turn it into a fun fast road and track car. After much deliberation we both decided on a Puma 1.7 - We wanted a good foundation to start with so after much hunting we found just what we were looking for:

Ford Puma 1.7
1999 - T Reg
75,000 Miles
2 Owners from New
Only serviced by Ford and 1 Independent Garage
Radiant Red

I have been involved in the Automotive sector in one way or another for over 25 Years so tapping into some of what I have learnt over the years and the modern tech stuff from my Son we started our Father - Son Project Puma.

(I did try and upload some pictures but am having a few tech issues lol - I used to use Photobucket for forum stuff but don't anymore - does anyone on here use anything else or links to pics in a Google Album)

8-) welcome to the site.

Sounds like a good fun project!

No one uses photobucket nowadays, you should be able to upload directly to a post now, or if you want to try and be a bit more organised you can use the gallery feature.

I dont think we have permission to see these images, they are just showing as a no entry sign.
