My Mk1 Punto

Hey all, Well i'm a fiat owner again, got a nice cheapy since i couldn't afford my insurance on the mondy, paying just under 600 for me and GF on this and i have lots of cash left over from the sale of my bike and car



Has just under 4 month MOT and 8 months tax, was thinking it only had a couple of each before i got there, pleasant surprise!

It's an SX60 so it has the fogs, electric windows and stuff oh and CD player!

in the last 6 months it's had a clutch, head gasket, exhaust, coil and an oil change and brakes so it should last a while (i hope)

going to give it a good old clean up and tinker on with it, well chuffed with it, drives like my old punto (mk2b) and for the price i couldn't help myself

EDIT - It was 150

yeah that's the plan the only thing wrong with it is you can't open the boot by the key, only the lever in the car, soon sort it, not sure if i want to let on how much i paid for it lol

Never a truer word. Its quite surprising whats out there at the moment , it really is a buyers market, & as you rightly point out if you do the leg work, it can really pay off.

Re: My Mk1 Punto

yeah well i was lucky to catch the add straight away TBH, he had a few people wanting to see it, luckily i got first refusal and i actually knew the lads dad, he delivers around my area.

the lads auntie was giving him her clio for the price the dealers were going to give her so he just wanted the punto out of the way
