There aren't many around. Here's a chronological list of my live "Insightings."
- Spring 2001 - Red 2000 5 speed no A/C Insight for sale at the Chevrolet dealer in Avis, PA. It was on their lot for about three weeks. I looked at it but balked at the $20,000 price tag.
- June 10, 2001 - Red 2000 5 speed Insight spotted at the Lock Haven University Alumni Pig Roast in Lamar, PA. I didn't find out who owned it but didn't poke around and ask either. Maryland plates.
- October 2001 - Silver 2000 5 speed Insight for sale at a Honda dealership in Cranberry Township, PA. They wanted $16,000 for their dealer demo with 1200 miles on it (no A/C) - it was parked in their showroom. They also had a new 2000 on the lot outside - $20,000 with air.
- November 2001 - My Silver 2000 5 speed Insight with dealer air. I bought it "sight unseen" on eBay from a dealer in Boston, MA. First glimpse of it was when they brought it to meet me at the bus depot in Philadelphia, PA. $12,900 plus some more for the A/C and 100,000 mile warranty.
- January 2002 - Red 5 speed 2000 Insight parked at the Nittany Mall in State College, PA. They bought it in Sayre, PA (dealer sticker) and it was a 2000 and dirty as all could be inside. Probably a Penn State student. It was still there when I came out - too bad they didn't get to see mine.
- February 2002 - Silver Insight spotted near Fisherman's Warf in San Francisco, CA while there at a conference. No idea as to the year.
- May 28, 2002 - Red Insight spotted in Jersey Shore, PA driving down Allegeheny Street. I suspect this is the one that was at the dealership in Avis since they are only about 10 miles apart.
- June 11, 2002 - Silver Insight spotted in Virginia with VA plates "SIPS GAS" just like mine! Read about it.
- August 10, 2002 - Red Insight parked at a motel in Oregon. It later passed me while I was on my bike. What a silent ride! Read about it.
- August 11, 2002 - Silver Insight passed me on a road in Oregon. Read about it.
- December 25, 2002 - Silver Insight at a Bennigan's Restaurant in Corpus Christi, TX.
- May 3, 2003 - Silver 2002 Insight with Alpine stereo (5 speed) at the Flying J truckstop in Lamar, PA. I was on my bike and I met the owner. We chatted for a few minutes. He has 7000 miles on his and swapped out the head unit with an Alpine.
- May 6, 2003 - I went five months between "Insightings" then I saw two within three days. Today's was heading north on US 220 by the Thomas Street exit in Jersey Shore, PA as I was heading south. It was silver but I don't know anything else.
- Winter 20045. There is a green 2000 Insight owned by a Penn College student. I see the car all around town here in Williamsport, PA.
