About Fred Simmler, RapidLotus

I remember reading about the upcoming release of the North American version of the Lotus Elise in 2004 and pouring over photos.  I had 2 small children, was working 40 - 60 hour work weeks as a Space Shuttle engineer, and was driving a Honda Accord.  I dreamed of owning an Elise but knew it was out of grasp.  Fast forward to 2017 and the last kid is out the door to college. Finally, I could get an "interesting" car.  I scoured the Web for an Elise and bought Griffin, sight unseen, in Virginia and drove it back to Florida.  A true bonding experience!  I have been hooked ever since and apply my engineering background and creativity to fabricating unique parts and decals for Lotus Elise and Exige.  An Evora, Evora 400, Evora GT?  I think I will bypass the Evora and go right to an Emira in 2022.  My deposit is already in for a yellow with the Black Pack!
