So, I finaly got around to geting a Puma again :)/>/> now I can finaly do all the tings I wanted to with the last one, but couldn't afford.

Car is a Jewel green 98 1.7 done 217.000 KM kost me 12.400 Nok, aprox £1300. Ok shape, little rust, good engien, and good running gear. all the shox are busted, clutch is on its last tread, front lights are faded, and the rear lights hawe smal craks, so they leak. front right wing has one medium dent, and some rust at the bottom. and a smal dent in the profile of the tailgate spoiler.

the people who had it before had tryed to fix som rust in the wheel arches, not only had they done a piss pour job, but they had also used the wrong color to paint it after, not only the wrong shade of green, but they had used blue :)/>/> looked like shit. luckaly they were idiots, so it was easy to wash off again :)/>/>

my plan is to build an FRP replica as close to the original as possible, but improwe where possible. Ie. Ice, weight reduction, power if possible.

I dont want to put a downer on it, but is it wise to put alot of effort into building an FRP on a car with over 130 thousand miles?

No, not realy :) but over hear pumas don't grow on tres :) if memory serves, there were sold ca 380 - 400 pumas total in norway. A good speciment with low miles kost round 50 - 70.000 Nok or 5 - 7000 and up, and that pretty mutch destroys my budget :)

extreme import taxes, a standard 1.7 kosting 600 has a import tax of about 5000. an FRP would be incane :)


Edit : just did the math, an frp kosting 8000 would when registerd kost aprox 16700 travle and transport not included :)

Isn't Norway in the EU? I thought there were no import taxes between EU members.

Wish i knew, its extreme. the new focus rs starts at almost 75.000 a volvo s60 t6 costs almost 100.000 thats twice the price in sweeden. its incane, and noone seems to know why, and the politicians want even more taxes. :(

So now you have your registered Puma, come over here and buy a sensible mileage FRP, drive it home and "ring" the ID, thus shafting the petty government and their stoopid taxes ;)

Everyones a winner..........."Petit de journais" as they say in Peckham Rodney ;)

Cheers Dave

you think that is mad, chek this, as I understand, the puma cost 14.500 back in 97 right?? Here in norway it actualy cost just over 30.000

there is something siriously wrong with that.
