Greetings from Practical Classics magazine

Post by James Walshe »

Hello! I’ve just got myself a Puma 1.7 project, which will feature extensively in Practical Classics magazine. I’ve already had some great advice from fellow Puma owners, so it’s good to be part of a nice bunch of enthusiasts.

I do need to find a replacement engine, so if anyone has a decent engine/donor car, I’d love to hear from you. There’d be maximum thanks given to you in the pages of the magazine!

Thanks - I look forward to hopefully contributing to the community and promoting the Puma as one of Ford’s greatest cars. Can’t wait to get mine back on the road!

Cheers,
James Walshe

Hi.
That would be great to see the Puma as a feature and that would help to establish it a s a classic. Can you tell me in which issue it will start to appear so I can start buying the magazine.

Regards,
Richard.

Welcome to the forum.
I'm a subscriber to PC, had started negotiating a deal to get mine before your buying guide appeared last autumn, the article just confirmed what I'd already decided. Haven't regretted the purchase at all, great cars.
Looking forward to reading your articles on the Puma.

Hi Richard,
it was in the November 2020 edition, a 3 page article.

Hello James, another subscriber here... Good luck with your project and I look forward to reading about it.

Over the years I've accumulated quite a few spares so if you are in need then ask me/us on these pages. Likewise ask us about body panels but some are getting hard to find.

Lots of us have tooling that's useful or Puma specific too. Where are you based, is it the Bauer Peterborough office? I'm in Warwickshire.

Welcome to the forum.
it's great to see that Puma's are now being included in PC magazine.

I live near Oxford too, so maybe I'll spot your car around in the future.
