State Farm rocks! $51/6mos to cover it as a "personal pleasure" vehicle under
their "classic" policy. I don't plan on exceeding 5000 miles/yr, so they can
cover it under the "classic" policy and I can drive without restrictions.
Sweet! Thanks, guys.

local SF agent.

I think I can get that cost lowered a bit by trimming off some extra coverage I
don't really need.
Anyway, what I'm getting at is that you would do well to find a local agent
you like and is willing to research things for you.
They need your business so make them work for it.
When you come to an agreement about coverage and price that you are happy with
then you are left with just driving your car and enjoying it.

Subject: [Spridgets] Insurance -- again!
I am looking to make a daily driver out of my 78 Midget and was wondering what
other types of insurance people have found outside of Hagerty and the collector
car type insurance companies (too expensive if you use it daily). Companies
like Geico are now offering coverage, just not sure how good it is. My current
insurance company won't cover the car.
