Looks like this guy has had some problems with it.

Heh... that one was for sale a few weeks ago on ebay too. Looks like it's difficult to sell a car if all you do is talk about the things that have gone wrong

There was a wrecked one you could pick up in georgia for 2,800, all you needed was some front end parts and a radiator...

Had I known, I probably would have actually found a way to get that one.

maybe i should post everything i see now...
but...like people never really cared before, sorry. The carpet was all messed up, it seemed like the previous driver abused the car, so I was hesitant to put it up, and the Insight had 43 mpg lifetime on it....

It would make an excellent conversion to an electric vehicle if it has so many problems in internal combustion form.

This glider loaded up with 1,200 pounds of AGMs would do ~130 miles per charge at 65 mph with a DC system. Yes, it would go over GVWR a few hundred pounds, but you can always reinforce the structure.
