For this fall/winter weather I'm going to look into organizing a Insight club meet with a Plant tour of a Honda assembly plant!
No they dont' make Insights in Ontario but we can see how other Hondas are made.

What do you think of that?

Guillermo, a plant tour sounds like a great idea. Are you thinking of the plant in Alliston? Maybe we could inspire a few Honda employees to purchase Insights. :wink:

date

Well as much as I like the Honda plant thing... we can do that seperate, I'd just like to get together with some other insight owners and it doesn't have to be a big deal.

How does November 15 th sound to you all?

Allistion or bust!!

I think the Alliston idea is ideal. This would send a grassroots vote of support to Honda for taking the risk they did with making the Insight. If they are not making money they could at least get a thankyou! Besides, our Insights could jeer at the humongous Pilot SUV's made there. Risk is ... we might get beat up!!

If a suitable date is found, I'm in.

So, there is no longer a tour? Any ideas on what to actually do? With the colder weather, outside activities are generally out of the picture.

Problem with having car meets this time of year is the cold and the wet. Difficult to admire and shine cars when it's raining.

The Honda Plant tour will happen but most likely it will be in January or February. I'm trying to contact a contact I got from someone... patience...

Nov. 15 will be good for a mini meet!
Hopefully it will snow that day so I try out my brand new winter tires and compare them to other member's OEM no season tires.

Um, so are we meeting up tomorrow or what?

It looks like I'll actually have my Insight back tonight (the Civic sedan the dealership loaned me - *shudder* - no comment) so I won't be the fool showing up claiming to drive an Insight while not having an Insight!

Given the lousy turn of weather, I'd suggest just meeting at a coffee shop or restaurant and chatting for a few hours.

We're spread out fairly thoroughly, so I'm not sure what location would be the most convenient for everyone.

Let's meet at a Williams coffee shop or something like that.
Someone search for one near the 401 in the Toronto area somewhere.

Let's make it 1 pm Saturday Nov. 15.
Is that ok for most?
(That way I can eat lunch there...)

Just gotta find a place...

Well, I have no idea where to meet in Toronto, since I don't live there.
Tomorrow I'll scope out and find a good convinient place in toronto, then maybe we could meet on a semi regular basis.

But it doesn't seem like it's gonna happen tomorrow.
