Think I'm the longest original owner. Bought mine in July of 1977. I've asked this question several times on different Lotus forums. Don't even want to think about how much I've invested over the years. If I cared to, I have ALL the receipts for parts and labor. Never added them. Doesn't matter. I'd spend it again! This was my once in a lifetime purchase.

Bought Lottie new in 1990, did over 18k miles a year until 1997 and she badly needed 'refreshing' at 130k miles. Was skint so I laid her up in a lock-up for 5 years, then was convinced to sell her as a project in 2002. Missed her so much I bought her back in 2006, generally refreshed and only having covered a couple of thousand miles whilst away. Paint was very faded in 2002, looked good in 2006 after a respray, but it seems not to have been a very good job. Am considering a vinyl wrap since she lives outdoors...
