My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Hi Red. This one's too small for me as it's a narrowbody (3" shorter and narrower in the cockpit) so will be getting sold as soon as it's IVA tested and registered but I have my blue one still when I can be bothered to get it MOT'd.

Hi Barry, over the last week or so I've read all 46 page's of this post, sad isn't it, but I've learned a lot. totally admire your workmanship and abilities. I'm probably a little bit older than you and was involved in rallying in the late 60's and early 70's, still miss my Escort Sport 1300. Got involved with Kit cars in the last 20 years and have been to Stoneleigh many times. Have you ever been to the Black Country Living Museum event at Dudley with the Westie ?

Hi John
I'm 63 next week so no spring chicken myself. No I've never been to that event but I've been to stoneleigh many times and used to go to the Stafford kit show and have also been to the Westfield factory at Kingswinsford. Also I would love another mk1 or 2 Escort especially with the technology and engines available to us now. My son, Andrew is building a Westfield at the moment using a 2.5litre Duratec on 50mm throttle bodies that would be good fun in an Escort.
