Taking Insight Styling as far as it can go!
History
Purchased sight unseen from craiglist seller in TX, with a cost of around $600 to ship to Ohio. Had bad clutch, IMA light, and about 160k miles along with a serious upper Pass Door Dent. It was originally Purchased to replace my V8 Swapped 95 240sx S14 as a daily, and though it never replaced it in spirit, it eventually sparked my love for the First Gen Insight. These Days it is the Goto Vehicle nearly replacing my S2000 as a Faster, More Fuel Efficient, and more durable Daily driver with its Swapped and tuned K20A3.

When Project Shadow's Ebay Sourced engine proved to be no good, Tron's K20A3 Vtec Killer Tuned Engine was swapped in to finish the build with extra Power and Vtec. Meanwhile Tron got a K24 with Vtec K20A2 head to make a Honda Monster. This was my first dive outside the hood of any car and into exterior styling, going full extreme with cues from the 350z, Mustangs, and rocket bunny FRS builds of today
