Comments I purchased this car with 11,000 original miles, in entirely original condition. At this date (2012) it now has 33K. It has lived it's whole life in the same neighborhood, and I used to walk past its garage when I was 13 years old- and then bought it 30 years later. It remained in good storage for over 25 years, undriven. The car runs better than ever, here in Denver, CO- and is remarkably faster than one would expect this car to be. My only modifications have been C/V joints, a beautiful 13" steering wheel, Japanese starter and alternator (of course), a bit of carpet, and an electric radiator fan. I replaced the original enamel paint with modern urethane, and you can see the work in progress at http://www.neilslade.com/Papers/Lotus.html and of course on my painting web site http://www.easypaintyourcar.com, where it is featured on the cover of my car painting manual- which appears to be the best selling car painting guide in the world, and has been for many years. PS. That's not me in the photo- just an admirer.
