Hi
Things that I can think of are.-
Rust in the rear arches,
When the cambelt is next due,
Check the rear top shock mounts, As when they go your car will sound like a tin can.
suspension Bushes.

The Puma is a good car. The bodywork tends to fail before the engine does.

The 1.7 is a quick car. The racing Pumas are gorgeous but they do need more serving and a good one will set you back 6-7k Were a good 1.7l 4k or 5 for a special edition.
