Smile Hey from central Florida

Hi I'm Ray. I've got a 2005 Graphite Gray Elise. . I haven't done much to her yet aside from a new stereo system, hopefully going to get a supercharger someday. I'm currently a high school senior which you might find pretty interesting, and I'll be attending UCF in the fall. This seems like a fantastic community and I'm excited to become a part of it.

Welcome Ray, always nice to welcome another new Lotus owner, especially in Central Florida.

A good place to show it off and meet with other Lotus owners would be at the 30th annual Winter Park All British Car Show being held at Mead Gardens on Saturday April 5th. You can either come as a spectator or as an exhibitor. If the latter, let me know and I can send you the registration form.

David.

Cool! I've been thinking about teaching my sister how to drive stick in my car but I'm unsure how safe that would be

Hey RayT, I just accepted your FB group join request. I was hesitant because I've been getting a bunch of fake profiles lately.

Welcome! I work at UCF and daily drive my Elise there. I'll be pumped & bummed out to see the parking lots filling up with other Loti.

Welcome,

I live in Orlando and drive an 07 Elise with a
Sector 111 Kanata 2 Supercharger. I highly
recommend that supercharger. Gives the
car instant throttle response and makes the
car very fast

Congrats from the other side of FL

Congrats Ray, enjoy! I just got the same year & color car in Tampa, maybe we'll see each other at one of the Lotus group drives. Your wheels look a little different from mine, are they from another year?
