Hello everyone! *^_^*

Post by feli3 » Tue Mar 22, 2011 9:07 pm

I am a 24 year old mechanical engineer from Romania. Graduated top of my class at University, so I got a delightful gift from my folks: my gorgeous little 1997 1.7 Ford Puma.
I think it would be the most troubled one here, but with your help and a lot of patience I might get it up to top shape. I've had it since August 2010, bought it from a doctor with 126000 Km on board and a tiny bit of rust around the wheel arches, and has done about 4000 Km since then.
Unfortunately I have managed to bump it twice already (I once kissed the backside of a Mercedes and the second time I bumped a fence with the rear while accidentally powersliding).
I love my little Puma to death, so I will be tending to it with all my heart (and hard earned cash :wink: )
Will be uploading photos soon.
Nice to meet you all!
