Nice 2001 Insight (Orange, CA)

I longingly studied this one. Even showed it to my wife. She said "let's go look at it," but I want the $3500 for house project materials. Very promising ad, I think: 2001 honda insight

I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

The gentlemen selling that car is Doug. He buys them at auction, fixes them and then resells them. He doesn't buy salvaged titles though.

Tbh, I would stay out of the insight world. The only guy that works on these cars (other than me) is a major asshole and a horrible, horrible person. I'm probably going to sell my insight and get a civic.

That is a good price for the low miles. I'd definitely take a look at it.

Pretty vague ad considering its length, although it gave the entire history of the G1 Insight for anybody interested.

I would run a VIN check on it to get its history, and the car is right around the mileage things start to fall apart, so I would check out the thread about buying a G1 Insight and know what you're looking for prior to checking it out

Good luck!

Cow meat, this insight is extremely clean. I saw it way back when I (used) to work at the aforementioned guys shop. It had a broken rear engine mount, mirror, and a couple other minor things, but he fixed them.

I am not vouching for it, due to me not recommending anybody getting one. Just making a statement based on observation.
