What to Know about Street Rod Insurance

 


Street Rod Insurance is the best way to get your muscle car covered.  When choosing insurance for your car keep in mind that what may be suitable for your modern car may not be suitable for your street rod.

To get the most out of your money, it's recommended that hot rod owners like you get insurance from a specialty insurance company.  The benefits that specialty car insurance companies offer is something that you will never get from a standard policy.

With this policy, your car will be appraised based on an agreed value. In a standard insurance, your car will be assessed based on its actual cash value. Agreed value is better than actual cash value as this amount does not depreciates over time. Also, with agreed value, you do not just settle for what the insurance provider tells you. You have a say on the amount being put on your precious ride. This allows you to get better protection for your vehicle.

If you have a vintage vehicle, it's time that you give it the proper coverage it needs. Get your policy from a respectable car insurance company like Classic Car Ins. Contact us and get your free quote today.

Getting the Perfect Collector Car Insurance Quote

 


If you are planning to buy car collector insurance online, you have to know that getting the least expensive collector car insurance quote does not mean that you got the best offer for your car.

Money is tight these days. It is perfectly understandable if you want to scrimp on things to cut down your expenses. A lot of vintage car owners make the classic mistake of immediately getting the lowest quote they see online. Why is this a mistake?

The benefit you get from your insurance provider is as important as the amount you pay for your policy. You may have the lowest insurance payment there is but you may not have the kind of coverage you need for your car. Any wise car collector knows that having to spend extra dollars for greater benefits will do you good in the future. This is not to say that you have to spend a lot on vintage insurance. There are a lot of affordable policies that offer great benefits. You just have research more and not be impulsive on your decision.

For you to come up with an informed choice, it is best to compare at least 3 antique auto insurance quotes and coverages. List the pros and cons of each policy before deciding on which one to get.

Classic Car Ins is one of the respected insurance companies that offer great benefits at affordable rates for your car. Contact us today for a free quote.

Henry Ford’s 149th Birthday Celebration On July 30th

Mr and Mrs Henry Ford


July 30, 2012, marks the 149th birthday of Henry Ford. Ford is known as the “Father of the Automobile” as well as a one of the greatest inventors in US history. He is most famous for incorporating the Ford Motor Company in 1903, but there are many other contributions he made that are not as prominent.

Here are a few of the lesser-known facts about Henry Ford.

  • Ford was chief engineer for Thomas Edison’s Edison Illuminating Company. The two became close friends.
  • Ford held 161 US patents for his inventions and innovations.
  • Ford was an avid book collector. Much of his collection now stands at the Benson Ford Research Center in Dearborn, MI.
  • Ford created the 8-hour workday in order to run three-shifts and run his factories 24 hours a day.
  • Ford created the Kingsford charcoal brand in 1920, turning leftover wood from Model T production into briquettes.
  • Ford loved to dance and worked to revitalize old-fashioned dancing in the 1920s.
  • Ford patented a soy-based plastic bodied car in 1942 as an attempt to open new markets for farmers.

The Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers, Florida, will be hosting a presentation in honor of Henry Ford on July 30 in the Edison Ford Museum. For more information, their website.

Ford, of course, is most beloved for his cars with the Ford Motor Company, from the early Model A to today’s Ford Mustang GT. Classic car collectors and muscle car enthusiasts alike can attribute the success of the American automobile to the innovation and vision of Henry Ford. If you collect classic Ford vehicles or vintage muscle cars, protect your investment with comprehensive collector car insurance from Classic Auto. We provide budget-friendly premiums with included benefits such as next term mileage rollover and roadside assistance. Get an instant collector car insurance quote online.

1966 Volvo P1800 Nears Record 3 Million Miles

Vintage Volvo


New York man and his 1966 red Volvo P1800 seek to reach 3 million miles sometime next year. Irvin Gordon, owner of the globetrotting classic, broke the Guinness World Record in 2002 for highest mileage on a vehicle, and he is currently just 34,000 miles away from his 3 million mile goal. Gordon has achieved most of the mileage going to car shows and events, but he has also taken trips to have coffee in every state just for the enjoyment of driving.

Gordon originally purchased his Volvo new in 1966 for $4,150. So what is his secret for his classic car’s longevity? Basic car maintenance and careful driving have kept his P1800 on the road. The original engine has been rebuilt twice, and Gordon has packed the trunk with car parts “just in case” a breakdown was to occur.

Whether you have had your classic car since before it could be called vintage or acquired it later, these collector cars need proper care and storage. Problems like tire rot, rust, and oil leaks are common with older vehicles, but can be prevented and repaired with regular maintenance and climate-controlled storage. A little precaution now can keep your classic on the road for years (and miles) to come.

One of the best things you can do to protect your classic car is to get affordable vintage vehicle insurance. Classic Auto provides comprehensive insurance policies with customizable options. Our tiered mileage plans fit your driving habits, whether you drive 1000, 3000, or 6000 miles. We even rollover your unused miles to your next classic car insurance policy term.
