After the accident with our CVT we've decided to sell our 5MT and go back to being a 1 Insight family.
I paid a premium for this car because it had low miles and I'm wondering if I got hosed. In the end all cars are only worth what you pay for them, seems like the market has tanked a bit on the G1s though.
What does everyone think?

Car was purchased new in Wyoming, did a brief stay in Texas and has been in Colorado for the majority of it's life (last 70k). Zero engine bay and undercarriage corrosion, dry states!
Some light eco-mods to increase MPG. Blocked grill, hot air intake, etc. Lifetime 62.5MPG. I've gotten from 65 to 90 depending on the trip, weather, traffic, nut behind the wheel. I can regularly get 62-3.
