With classic Fords going up in value I wonder has anyone got a good example of the Puma, not just an FRP, tucked away somewhere away from the elements just on the off chance one day it will go the same way as classic Fords like the Capri, Escort Cossy, Saphire Cossy and even the RS mk1!
If you do, don't forget to message me when the time comes to sell in a decade or two!
After nearly 5yrs of (3 door imperial blue) ST170 ownership I still miss my Moondust 1.7 KF51YPK; slower... yes, less grip... yes, worse brakes... yes, smaller and less practical... yes, hairdresser comments... yes, bodywork and exhaust tha's more likely to rust... yes.... but the best car I've ever driven :) even with my latest car purchase which is ridiculously fast but proves its all about driver involvement and not just speed.

There are a few standards tucked away. It's not always about speed the Puma has character.

In the Daily Telegraph for 10/01/2019 under the heading "5 Best Modern Classic Cars To Buy Now" the Puma was listed at No.1 with the price quoted as 500. They expect a substantial rise quite soon!

The quoted price should have read from 500. The Telegraph writer ends his words of praise with "Buy Because: You'll struggle to find anything that's this much fun for this little cash, and Pumas simply can't stay this cheap forever." So there you have it!!

I bought a 98 R plate last January, and she has definently still got it, looks, style, character to add......more of a head turner than any FocusPosted Image. Also hoping for price and value increases, i did sell my 51 plate magnum grey thunder for a shade over the 500....(last year). Cheers.
