Antique/Classic Car Insurance

If you've got an antique/classic/or other toy/pleasure car...give me a shout.

We've got some of the best prices and policies for these types of cars in the industry. No joke.

You dont' have to have antique plates, our policies are "agreed" value, include flatbed coverage, etc. If you've got a summer car, give me a call!!

I don't want to step on any toes so hit me up if you want this pulled Pete but FWIW I had my S2000 which is now 10 years old re-written as a collector's car policy as I only put 2k miles on her yearly. It is insured for $22k now (versus the old policy which only covered her to $12k) and my rate dropped by $330 to $180/yr. for full coverage.

A FANTASTIC rate for that car. All I had to do was take pictures of the car and talk to the agent. The reason I write this is because it's not what most people would consider a "Classic" car and yet State Farm was still able to work their magic for me. So if you have a summer only toy, it would behoove you to check out Pete's rates, I'd bet money you'll be happily surprised by how much money you'll save and how good the coverage is.

Thanks for that experience. The car has to be 10 years old, and of special value, meaning either a collectable car or a desirable car. We won't write a 10 year old Honda Civic on this type of policy, but a S2000...sure. And you're right. The policy is SOOOO cheap for what you get.

Best of all with our agreed value, if you total that S2000, you'll get $22K. You're not subject to the company finding you another car or paying you "blue book value" if you will. This is the most important part of the policy for anyone who has an antique/classic/summer toy type car.

What are the annual mileage limits for cars with your company? Are they the same for motorcycles?

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

There are no specific annual limits that we are aware of. If you mention 8,000 miles a year, we're instructed to go with a standard auto policy. But most such policies I put through are between 3K and 4K miles a year (or a summer rather). Also, we have no restrictions about when you can drive the cars. With some competitors, you're limited to 2 days a summer where you can drive to work, or out for fun, or whatever. Doesn't have to be just to car shows.

Any issues with having a policy with State Farm already and starting another for different vehicle? Frowned upon between agents? Would a new policy through you for lets say another bike be able to be added to my monthly withdraw from my acct with my existing policy from another agent?

Yes, it would be sort of taboo to add a vehicle with a different agent than the one you're insured with. I'm sure they're a great agent, and I appreciate the opportunity and you thinking of me though.

P.S...who's the agent? I have a friend that just took over for an agent up in Lake Villa, and another in another part of McHenry county.
