A thread for Insight spotters. From time to time we see Insights when we least expect them. I thought perhaps a thread full of only these encounters would be fun.. I'll start:


I saw an Insight in Fort Benton Montana Monday June 26th about 11 am. Folks, Fort Benton is a small, small town on the Missouri River. I was there to take a canoe trip down the river. I'm all ready to go when I see a silver Insight...WITH TEXAS PLATES. So I'm walking down the street in my PFD trying to catch the Insight, lol they read a little about Lewis and Clark and pulled away. Just about the last place I ever thought I would see an Insight.

I've had my Insight for about 3 months now and finally saw another one on the road. I was driving north on NC Hwy 55 in my silver cvt and was thrilled to see a red Insight driving south. As we passed each other, I gave the other driver thumbs up, but I don't know if he or she saw me. It was raining rather hard. I just couldn't stop smiling.

A red insight in Irvine Spectrum Center Parking Lot in Irvine, CA. I wanted to leave a "nice car :D" note on the windshield but I thought it would be too stalker-ish.

Saw a silver Insight on my way home from work today around 4PM, heading north on Route 28 going towards Route 7 in Sterling, VA. I hit the horn as I passed and she waived. I've seen several in the area lately.

Two so far...

On our Best Road Trip In The World Ever So Far (1 month sabbatical for My Beloved and me), a red one near downtown in Portland three days ago, and a silver one in Seattle northbound on the 5 yesterday. We're not in our Insight this trip, we took the 'vert, but between Dallas and the northwest, NO Insightings...

Another one!

Oh! Oh! And a red one (looked brand new!) turned west on Northgate from the northbound 5 about an hour and a half ago, right behind us! Three in one trip, and we haven't even hit California yet! :lol:

I've had a few In-sightings since I received my Insight in Dec. 2005.
1. My first sighting was a red or blue (can't remember) Insight in Camp Hill, Pa on the ramp to 581 east.
2. I spotted a silver one in Hershey, PA near the Hershey Medical Center.
3. I saw a silver one on Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg. PA.
4. I see a silver one 1-2 days a week traveling in the opposite direction on Rt 81 between Carlisle, PA and Hagerstown, MD.

It's funny, I took a vacation to Myrtle Beach and didn't see one Insight. But, here around home, I've spotted the 4 listed above.

I normally don't see many Insights, but lately I've been seeing a red one around Belle Meade, and the gentleman driving it always honks and waves. :p

This weekend I saw a different red one (with a white pinstripe) in Antioch, but instead of a friendly driver, he gave me a very mean look and took off! :shock:

It's normally such a delight! 8)

!!!!!!!!!

And another red one parked at Clallam Bay, WA! To really appreciate this sighting, Google it, it's not far from Neah Bay, the northwestern-most point in the USA lower 48, which we were on the way to visit two-three days ago. Could have knocked us over with a feather-type-reaction. Gone when we went back through two-three hours later. An Insight near the end of the world! :eek:

When did you see the 1st one? I drove thru Carlise area on my way to VA Memorial Day weekend. I never see any around here, though i see one parked at an apartment building and i am one step away from stalking and putting a little note on the windsheild :shock:

I hardly ever see another Insight - there are only 46 in Australia AFAIK. Probably about one every three months on average. I'm thinking of buying another one myself just to keep the red bug company!

I want to see one!

I've had my car for two weeks and have been scanning the roads. Yesterday I say a Prius and thought I had at least seen a "step-brother" to my car. But I feel so alone in the world :cry:
I'm headed to the beach next week and am determined to find a fellow insight on the highway.

A blue Insight parks right in front of my house in Berkeley, Ca. several times a week (I think the woman who drives it goes to Karate classes at the school a half a block away).

Once we get our Insight (15 days, 43 minutes from now) I'll have to make a point to wave at her. Gee, I hope that doesn't freak her out and she goes all Kung Fu on me or something :lol:

Needless to say, the San Francisco Bay Area has lots of Insights and other hybrids cruising the highways/byways...I hope that doesn't mean people won't wave and be friendly!

In CA, where are all the Insights?!?

Finally, yesterday, saw onw that chased us 3-4 miles west of Sebastopol. No others yet! But Prii out the wazoo... and 2 HCHs. No kidding, I didn't bring my hand clicker (I'm on va-k, man), but I bet we've seen 1000 Prii. They're as common here as Corollas in Texas...

I see insights all the time here in minnesota. I live in the twin cities area and they are kinda common it seems compared to other areas. I have seen a two red ones and a silver one in a one month period.

I live in a tiny town (about 1000 hearty souls brave or foolish enough to live here year round) out in the sticks of southwestern New Hampshire, and when I went to register mine back in '04 when I bought it, I was absolutely shocked to find out that there was another right here in town.

One brown one southbound on the 1 in Santa Clara CA! I say brown because it was scary dirty... ugh...

Then we followed a silver one east from Los Osos... and met TWO MORE siilvers coming towards us within a minute of each other! !!!!!!

And a blue one in Lompoc an hour ago!

That's the most we've ever seen in one day.. :)

Gosh you guys are so lucky. I feel like an anomaly here in the East Bay (Northern California). I think the majority of Insights are closer to San Francisco...which is only about 45 mins away but still! :(

Our first green Insighting!

Going south across Sunset on Fairfax, 5pm-ish, in LA today... right rear had a small dent in the bodywork... did I mention all the Prii we've seen so far?? Here in LA, triple it... and nearly all (and most of the 35-40 HCHs we've spotted, too) have the 3 fugly yellow stickers that allow solo HOV use...
