Sounds good... What litre engine was that? I ant a nice little easy car! Easy to park and run! Insurance isnt too much of a problem as i have no claims and i can just add it as another car on the policy for a small amount!

sorry mate wont be keeping it that long, i owe my old man alot of money so need to shift it, should easily punt it as diesel cars tend to go really easy.

its grey, dont think i have any pictures, ill have a look though, its just a regular punto, few dings and dents but a solid little runner, got me about for the year when my conversion was getting done, and its actually quite a quick car, car thumpjunkie a fright when he was in his 140
