How to Protect Your Vintage Car Properly

 

Because vintage cars are not used for everyday driving, you have to know the proper measures you have to take when storing your vehicles. Not using your car all the time does not mean you are lowering its risk of getting damages. Here are some tips you can follow to protect your car when not in use.

Fully Secured Car Storage
When not using your car, you have to store it in a safe place where it can be free from theft and other external factors that may result in damages on your vehicle. This means storing your car in a locked garage. Simply parking your vehicle in a carport and covering it is not enough. A secure storage space is often one of the requirements that may be asked by a Classic Custom Car Insurance agency.

Don't Forget Your Tires
If you won't be using your car for a short time, make sure the tires have correct pressure in them. However, if you will be storing your car for a long time, it's best to lift the tires up with a jack to ease the weight off the vehicle on your tires.

Preventing rust, corrosion and moisture from forming on your car is important to keep it in good condition even if your car is in storage. To get full protection for your vehicle, you must also give it  the proper insurance coverage it needs.

The American Classic Insurance You Need for Your Car

 

For owners of classic or vintage cars, classic car insurance is considered a necessity.  Getting insurance fit for your classic car is important to make sure that the specific needs of your car are taken cared of.  It is advisable to carefully choose the classic insurance company you will entrust your car to.

Different insurance policies have different benefits and coverage.  Take time to gather information about the different classic insurance policy providers and make a comparison.  Price is not the only criterion.  Lower rates do not automatically mean that a particular insurance policy provider is good.  Lower rates may also mean lower coverage and less efficient services.  It is never a wise idea to automatically choose the classic insurance agency that offers the least expensive rate.  You have to make sure that you are getting the best value for your money and the best services for your vintage car. Most insurance providers now offer an online quotation to make your research more convenient and time-efficient.

With Classic Auto Insurance, you are sure to get what you are paying for and more. You can choose from our different mile plans and have the option of adding unused miles on the next policy term. As our client, you can take advantage of discounts, club memberships and affordable payment options. Get your free quote today.

The Basement Lambo

Have you heard of the “Basement Lambo”? We’ve been following the story for several years now and we wanted to share the latest report with our readers. The story of the Basement Lambo is a long one, starting over 17 years ago. Ken Imhoff got an itch as a young man to build his own Lamborghini Countach, an itch inspired by his father who believed he was capable of fulfilling this daunting task.

Shortly after he married his wife Eileen, back in 1990, he started the project in the basement of their family home. A project he thought would only take 5 years turned into a project that took almost 17, 18 if you count the year it took him to bust a hole through his basement to get the car out.

Our friends over at Jalopnik are following the latest development in the story: Ken Imhoff has decided to sell his custom, home-built Lamborghini Countach.

Why, you ask? He says he is ready for his next project. The Lambo is just sitting there and according to him, he’s not taking care of it like he should. So he’s ready to move on. What do you think: crazy, or a good kick-off to his retirement fund?

Car Club Memberships: Read Between The Lines

 

Car club memberships were formed to provide a common gathering for people who share the same passion for certain classic cars and models such as Corvettes, Mustangs, or classic trucks. These days, there are so many different types of car clubs that you can join based on a range of interests. Some memberships are free, while others may charge monthly or annual fees.

When looking for an insurance agency, make sure to ask about club membership payments, because the benefits differ between paid and free memberships. Clubs with fees often offer exclusive deals, discounts to car and repair shops, the best roadside assistance programs, and invitations for exclusive car events. Other companies offer memberships to these exclusive car clubs and events for free.

Always make sure to read between the lines and ask about membership payments: some may only shoulder a fee for a year and then require you to pay for succeeding years. Make sure you plan on using these perks too, because you don't want to pay for something that you won't get the proper use out of.
