Nothing. Car is as new.

General Comments:

This car is seriously quick and runs like a scalded ape. I love it and I have two of them. These are the real Pumas, Not those lousy Fords.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

But is it like to drive the car?. I was think of restoring one that's been standing down my road. Is it really slow coz it's a bettle and how is the handling?
