Yes, life can be simpler for a one model club..... but with the car's age and demise to the scrap yards, you need to manage a long run decline.....

So the personal relationships become key to how happy they are..... it also helps if the number of cars are above the tens of thousands in the model too. Like the X1/9, then beyond the 20k cars come the icon models that are each institutions in their own right.

Now the mk1 and mk2 UTs never made it to the 10k car mark..... and they had this sorry habit of rotting through!

Also if you were checking on our last UT conversion chats..... there is little point in trying to melt these engines to extract silly boost levels.... something they would be encouraged to do from reading Ford Cossie diairies.......
if we go back to twin cams, then there at least three stages of development to attract modern petrol heads..... Ford and Ford turbos, Toyota then Nissan and Subaru, and BMW..... all of these engines will deliver very serious grunt - if you are prepared to throw money at them.....
and so I'd say that the Fiat Group was left behind on the value and development road car front..... and the UT would just not qualify for this one..... nowadays a good Beamer can be picked up with very little money - and I'd expect many of the kit and conversion projects to be heading in those directions.

Its another reason why I could have wished to see more genuine Abarth action/ models...... as the UK Fiat scene is looking more like a set of lonely islands.

Punto Sports Club - Website Update

It's been a bit quiet over a Punto Sports for a while now which is a huge shame for the Club. If you didn't know, PSC was created in 2002 and there has been a huge amount of information shared over the years. We don't want to let that go to waste and really want keep PSC going for as long as we can. So in the last few weeks the forum owners have been in discussions on ways to improve the site, fix some of the issues and help encourage the members to return.

In light of these discussions, Wilkyway has decided to pass the reins over to a familiar face on the forum in order to resolve some of the technical issues that have plagued the forum for some time now. Some of you may remember Puntoboy who ran the forum from around 2005-2012, he ha been brought back with one aim, bring back the community we once had here and make PSC thrive once again.

Over the last week PSC has been moved to a new host, not only to cut the cost but also to improve the performance. Several other fixes have also been implemented which hopefully fixes some of the issues users were reporting, which also includes an upgrade to the forum software.

Another change that we have made is to the Club membership. Going forward the club will be closed and all content that was only available to Club Members will now be available to everyone. This may change in the future but I cannot guarantee that at this stage.

The staff at Punto Sports really hopes that the changes above will help us revive the club and encourage old members to return but also new members to join.

If you are having problems with your account, please send an email to club@puntosports.co.uk and a member of the team will assist you.

Thanks for your support.
