They're fairly uncommon here too - I have actually only seen 1 or 2 other Gen 1 Insights in my life in the wild.

I'm at college now finishing the last couple weeks of this semester before I will be home doing any modifications to the Insight.

Are you missing the cover for the tow hook in the front bumper? I was at a yard last week with one heavily chipped bumper, but it still had the cover. I have to drive back there to return some things anyway. I might be able to grab it for you.
Yes, the front cover is missing the cover for the tow hook, and the paint is heavily chipped. Looks as speckled with white as a robin's egg is speckled with brown. Will be looking for a red replacement depending on what we can do as far as touching it up, but if I get a replacement I'd rather it not be as chipped up as this current one is.
