Default Hudson Valley NY Insight meet/club?

I am located in Kingston, NY. I see quite a few Gen1 Insights around. Anyone interested in a meetup and/or informal club? Post here, or I can be reached at hvinsightclub(atsign)gmail.com.

if you guys decide to do something a little further south, i would be interested! i am at the very southern end of westchester county. so something in northern westchester or putnam would be feasible.

im also moving to SC in may, so it would have to be before then! haha

Seriously, I've seen about 15 of these around. Anyone near Kingston want to get together some time?

I'm a few years late to the party, having just purchased my Gen1, but I'm interested in a face to face.

On the 99mpg page there are a couple customers of Mike's who are local - 1 in Kingston, 1 in Accord. I would love to see and discuss their use of a grid charger.

Thanks for posting. Send me a PM with your contact information and I'll give you a call. I actually just heard from a woman with a 2002 MT who is interested in getting together for Insight information exchange.

i was on my way back from NJ the other day in a Prius and decided to hyper mile behind an insight which ended up getting off the Kingston exit. Anyone have a car with stickers on the wheel spats down there?

I'm down in Beacon. I do see quite a few running around. Not sure if they are on this site though.

Default Hudson Valley Insight Club Meetup

Let's try to schedule a meetup. I'm suggesting the Rosendale Cafe some Saturday afternoon. I once saw three Insights there in one day, but didn't catch the owners.

I'm near the Queens / Nassau line, I suck at making it to more local events. While a meet-up might be real nice, I'm kind of interested in finding someone "local" that might share a grid charger in the future. I've yet to take a deep look into them. I do understand this is linked to memory effect and a chemical wall that builds up, or at least that's been my previous experience with Ni-Cad based cyclers. I've seen post titles "build your own" and I have the skills and probably the parts already. I'm a new 1 week owner of a 2010 and I'm still on a steep slope learning curve with hybrids and the Insight. One day I'll look at grid charger design and theory.

Good luck on the meet up

Default Mid-Hudson Valley Insight Stalker Seeks Meet Up!

I live in Beacon, NY, and I work up and down the Hudson Valley. I have wanted an Insight since first they became available, and finally, about a year ago, I procured my dream car--a 2000 Insight with manual transmission, a bit of a project. I revived the little guy, filled him with tools, and we've enjoyed 20,000 miles together so far.

Clearly, I am late to this party, but I've been posting entries on "I Saw an Insight..." which sound a bit like something from Craigs List "Missed Connections."

Clearly, I would love to meet up with other Hudson Valley 1st Gen Insight owners.
