Default Southern California Events?

Hey guys,

New member here, so excuse me if there's already a thread about this. Does anyone know of any insight clubs or hybrid events in California? I've been hypermiling my truck for some time now and I'm now ready to move on. I'm currently in the market to buy an insight. I would love to gain some more knowledge about these cars and expand my network for my insight search. I would really appreciate meeting up with you folks and learning more.

Jared:

Welcome to the forum. Lots of good folk and info here on "IC".

The "search" function, as well as the IC "knowledge base" and "encyclopedia" will provide answers to most questions an Insight owner (or perspective owner) will have. The "stickies" in each forum area are also well stocked with info, with many containing links.

Yes, there are many Insight owners in your region and they do get together for meet-ups. Keep an eye on the "hybrid socials and events" forum for advertisements of meet-ups that may be near your area. These are great opportunities to meet with other Insight owners to share ideas and experience.

Keep an eye on the "buy/sell" section of the "Insightful Deals" forum. Sellers often advertise there. Here's a link to a compilation of suggestions to look for when searching for a G1.

Good luck and happy Insighting,

If you are in the LA area, you should go by Jue Motors in Covina and meet klr3cyl(Scott) he is one of the best Insight mechanics in U.S. He is a great guy, very helpful, and very friendly.

Keep your eyes open for IC members here who are near you. Sometimes it only takes a suggestion to arrange a low pressure meet at a restaurant or a car show.

And use to "socials and events" section to find something or start something - as Mountain Driver suggests.

Hope you find a nice car soon.

Thanks for the info guys!

That stickied buyer's guide has some priceless information in it, many thanks to the people who created it.

I'm very willing to travel and meet up with some insighters. I'm keeping an eye out on the socials and I'm looking forward to meeting some of you guys as well.

By the way, I'm currently in Rancho Cucamonga.

Even though you do not have a car you can still organize an event.
Choose a time that works for you
Choose a location that works for you
Announce it on InsightCentral
Announce it on any of the Insight Facebook Group.

Even if just one person shows up you have your club!

Repeat as much as you want.
