Settle an Argument

The poll is for your views on..................




The Ford Puma


I'm aware of how they drive and common faults etc as I know a couple people who have owned them over the years, however the main sticking point is the looks. I've always had a soft spot for them as many years ago (when they were only a couple years old) one of my friends modded a black Puma quite subtly but really nicely and it was probably the first time I saw a modified car in the flesh and liked it (I was a late bloomer to the world of modified cars).

So because I can't make a decision as to whether I should own one or not, I thought I would ask the masses. If you could answer the poll and give your opinion then that would be appreciated

(Re-posted this and actually added a poll )

I'm not a Ford fan, and they're essentially a fiesta in a nicer shell, but I'll just put this here:

Are you a large fella? if so it could end up looking like a Noddy car.

Haha...That's what I'm worried about. People in the forces aren't exactly forgiving when it comes to taking the piss....No holds barred!

pretty tough cars.

My mate had one and crashed it in the ice a year ago.

Went not one but two road signs and ended up in the hedge.

His dad towed it out and patched it up and it was fine and still going strong.

To be honest there really is not much room for a big lad. you might feel cramped..

Not bad motors but as Matty says bit of a hairdressers car really... Only time I could say I'd own one is if it was a stripped out cosworth powered rally replica
