Hi everyone.
I picked up a 1.7 a week or so ago,it was on eBay for a few hours but the owner took it off quite quickly as he was very local & I went straight round.
It had failed an MOT a few days before,but only on brake pipes & wiper blades.
I've had the brake pipes done & changed the wiper blades,it's going back to be MOT'd today.
The car doesn't seem to have any rust,no mention of it on old MOT's.

My other cars are a Volvo C70 T5,& an MG Express 160(ZR VAN),so this is something a bit different to me.

It feels like a cross between the MG & the Volvo,handles like the MG but feels more like sitting in a smaller C70 :-)

It's my daily for now,the MG & Volvo both need attention at the moment.

I changed the wood gearknob for an aluminium one today,did many Pumas have the wood trim on the dash?

No, afaik that was not standard in any Puma. I imagine it's been swapped in from a Fiesta.
