Intersting thread, I see 1st Gen Insights all the time. One in parked in a driveway across from my office in Simbury CT - its silver. There are two red ones I see in the Bloomfield Simbury area (one with a roof rack and one without - I saw them about 2 minutes apart once so I know its not the same car). I was one a month ago at a stop light in Manchester CT. I've see one or so every 2 months going south on 91 in CT around 4:00 - 4:20 pm. When I used to commute to Boston (11/9/09-10/7/10) I used to see a silver one (I had a blue one at the time) on Route 90 east almost every morning at about 5:30-5:45 am.

Its like being doctor who in your tartus and seeing another tartus - you say wow that car is small. Then you realize its the same size as the car I'm in. Dumdedumdedumdedumdeumdedumdedumdeumduem OOOOOOOOOOO

Friend had two tickets to see the Bellamy Brothers in the Plano Courtyard Center near downtown last night so we joined them. Upon leaving the concert, near downtown, we drove by a red Insight parked on a short street beside the DART station downtown, on the west side of the tracks, around 10:30pm... Not that familiar with the neighborhood, so that's as close as I can get...

Didn't know about that. I like how the wheels look like a turtle shell, and they are harder to spot.

In Canada, for a certain year set, all Civics and Honda fit's came with the 2nd gen Civic Hybrid rims. The five spoke ones. So for that set it's impossible to tell a Civic from a hybrid unless you see the badge. It gave it a 1.8mpg increase along with the spoiler.

Been really lucky of late! Saw a red one last week off I64, exit 238 near Williamsburg. I honked and they looked (I think!).

Cool Port Saint Lucie

Interesting that I saw someone post re: Port Saint Lucie. I drive a Silver 04 G1, thought it was me you were talking about (I live on Gatlin Blvd) but I don't have any woodstock sticker. :P

Also, I know a guy who works on the same block as me in Downtown Fort Pierce who also has a silver G1.

Maybe we could get together some time? I'm a new owner and I don't think I'm getting the most out of my car as I could be getting (get jumping/bucking maintaining 45 mph in 5th (MT) and then it jumps out of lean burn mode.) Coggin said "We have never heard of having to clean the EGR plate or valve." I have a new plate and the rubber rings to replace after cleaning the plate, but I am not handy enough nor do I trust myself to take my engine apart

Default Finally!

I pulled into a gas station off of Rte 128, exit 19, heading towards Boston...pulled right in behind a carbon copy of my own car....year model unknown. It was parked and running!! Who the heck does that these days?? Looked like a little old lady went out to get into her. Anyways, I finally have seen one, other than at the dealership for service.

I saw a red Insight at the ARCO station at St Mary's and I10 today... oh It was Willie in his little red rocket... He was on his way to Albuquerque to meet up with Mitch and Sam. We had phoned each other to meet there, so it wasn't by chance.

We talked for an hour or so, and then he got back on the road. We both had new BBB packs and my foot was on the floor, but he had his turbo... so he was out in front.
