Frankly I'd love to have this car. I'm planning on giving my 2nd Insight to a family member within the next few months and will have a empty spot in my garage. If it's still available in June, I'll see if my wife won't kill me for bringing home this iconic vehicle.

Thanks indeed does not cut it, @Aerohead
@Ecky, I hope you can give it a proper home. I am in the same place as basjoos, nearing retirement and not driving what I have. There was a time it would have serve me well with the bulk of my family 150 miles away.

If no one else has taken it home by June, it’s all yours.
