Default UK Insight G1 Magazine Article.

Practical Classics have just done a nice piece on the Insight G1.

They bought one to try and I gave it a once over

Nice one Peter.
Practical Classics was a favourite mag back in the 80's when Jaguar mk 2's were all the rage. I ended up restoring a Daimler v8 version over a 3 year period - a huge project.
When it was finished it looked great, drove really well and did about 15mpg.
Sold it soon after!

Very cool! If anyone in the UK would be able to obtain a copy of this magazine, would you kindly inform me?
I would of course send immediate payment for the magazine, postage, and a pint on me.
I collect all printed matter on Gen 1 Insights.
Thanks for the consideration.

Wow, Peter, you're famous(er)!

And... "It is the driving equivalent of cultivating a Bonsai tree."

I never thought about it in quite that way.
