As a new owner this year I am curious to know just who in the club is the owner with most years under their belt?
Also youngest owner?
It matters not a jot of course either way, although being at the older end lowers insurance I suppose.

Purchased my coupe In July 2019 at age 68. smile

Indeed, and still in love! Gave her a wash yesterday, comes up a treat, especially in the right light.

Bought mine for about £1000 off ebay in October 2004. It was a 16v N/A and wouldn't start, but that was resolved fairly quickly (even Barnacle came over to try and help I seem to remember) after finding out the distributor arm was 180 degrees out. Turbo engine removed from the Tipo and put into the coupe and still have it 15 years later and with a little more power than standard hehe I was 25 when I bought the car and now 40

I bought 'Snoopy' 15 years ago back in the summer of 2004 at 23 years of age.

Although she was nearly six years old at the time, I like the fact she was first registered within a couple of weeks of me passing my driving test cloud9

Bought my first, a 16vt, in 2005 at the age of 23. Got my 2nd and current one in 2010. I think its with me for life now.

Striking to me is the age spread of owners and the longevity of ownership, remarkable. But then again having found out for myself just how good the coupe is, perhaps not so remarkable!

Almost 20 years of coupe ownership, with highs and lows. Over those years I've made some very good friends so here's to another 20 years. Now with my eighth coupe and possibly the best one to date.

😁 Very true, my only wish is that I had bought my coupe years ago, oh well just have to drive it more often and make up for lost time!

I bought 'Marvin' in April 2001 when he was under 2 years old and I was 39.
I have a photo of us the day I collected him from Wimbledon Carriage Company. cloud9 I also have a photo from earlier this year, the day Marvin clocked up 80,000 miles. I'm now 58, Marvin's worn better than me in 18 years! biglaugh

Great to see new and seasoned owners of all ages who love our coupes love

Bought my 20VT at a sprightly 55 and have never regretted it - 17 years later I think the Coop is in better fettle than me - certainly had more joints replaced recently ! - must be using the wrong lubricant.

I got mine in 2000 at the age of 32 - sold it for a few years and bought it back in 2007.
It last ran on the road in 2015 but I have hopes of MOTing it soon and coming to a few meets.
