Sorry this has to be large picture to appreciate it. Here's a link:

And we thought Insight's looked small next to Hummers. Had it been lifted a few more inches I could have probably driven under neath it.

Hi Rick:

___Great pic and it sure does make me think of my own work environment … I have of course been driving my Insight back and forth to work and it is parked in a sea of 4WD large and small trucks, and a ton of SUV’s. There was a brand new - black Hummer H2 in a large empty area of the lot yesterday (no one was there but a few of us that were scheduled/forced) and if I would have had a digital camera with me, I would have pulled the little red beauty up to and next to the Hummer for a few pics myself. Looking out from the 4th floor of the plant, the Insight looks really small in comparison to everything else in the lot but knowing what she can do on the highway in comparison to the rest of those vehicles makes me feel almost giddy ;)

___Good Luck

I would be hesitant to park near that thing... I wouldn't want my Insight used as a footstool...

Haha, actually it was a guy that's shop is next to my dad's. They mainly lift trucks so not only do I know them, but it's actually kind of common for me to park next to them. This truck was the one with the largest lift though that I've seen there. They would have had someone to answer to if my car had been used as a foot stool, believe me.

Ohh, probably one of the most rediculously funny things I've ever seen was this guy trying to clean his front windshield. He first had to throw the paper towel and cleaner bottle up in to the seat then procede to pull himself up in the truck. Once he got up there it was a brace yourself between the door and the door sill and hang over the edge and hope not to fall. Then of course he couldn't really reach the whole thing anyways. I guess I can relate to that part as I used to have a truck like that, but I didn't have to worry about falling to certain injury if I managed to fall while cleaning the windshield. Then to get to the other side he just crawled through the cab. Very entertaining.

Hi Rick:

___I wonder how he washes and waxes that monster :mrgreen:

___Then again, I can bet changing the oil is pretty easy … Except the filling part anyway ;)

___Good Luck

My best guess is a pressure washer and a spot free rince. Thats what I would resort to anyways. I would just be frightened to have to buy tires for it though. I bet they're expensive.
