At what cost would you go, to keep your puma?? Its probably a question that keeps cropping up! My thunder is at the cross roads of its life the dreaded rust has got to it badly. To keep it going will cost mega bucks. Undecided as to spend or break-any thoughts wise people??

Depends what the car means to you.

For me... I've owned mine for 10 years, I met wife because of a Puma. I would and do go some way to keep a Puma in my life.

Well this question i get asked all the time??
For me my Ole Wendy is a keeper.. she wants for nothing.

See I like so... the money spent on a new car, Insuance switch over, road tax and all the expenses you'll make excuses for might just sort your puma and more.!!

Hi All at what cost do you keep paying out for repairs ?.
Mot time Millie has been off the road for to long nearly two years now after head gasket blow.
I have now got round to replacing her engine got good engine with under 75k from good friend he replaced cambelt water pump
And then scrapped the track car.I also replaced front discs and pads new brake hoses.
Mot was bad rust being the main problem at the rear inner wheel aches both sides holed
Both outer cills holes near seat belt mounting.
Got quote for welding £400 so it must be done or Millie's scrap.Shes to good to go for scrap so £400 for another years motoring in her is well worth it hope to get her back is Friday.

Hi.
I have had my Puma for fourteen years and I will never get rid of it. This year I spent £1360 on MOT which included welding, bespoke cat, handbrake cables, rear brakes and lambda sensor. I have just spent £725 on spray work to restore the body to its former glory. I will be adding a post with more detail on my project thread with photos some time this weekend.

Regards,
Richard.
