Insuring a Pinto
« on: January 12, 2014, 06:30:52 AM »
What is the best way to insure my '77 Bobcat?

I had liability insurance that wasn't too expensive but if anything happens I'm out what I put in. 

My Bobcat is a daily driver, but only because I like to drive it.  Seems a waste to let it in the garage, so I drive it all the time.

I'm returning from Afghanistan in a few days and need to take the car out of storage and get it insured again.

Advice??

Hey Gonzobobcat:

If you are returning from Afghanistan then I am assuming you are in the
military.  If so, thank you for your service.  If my assumption is true then
your best auto insurance is at your finger tips.  That is, USAA insurance.
No one can best them in price and service.  Here is their link:

https://www.usaa.com

Give them a call and they can give you the details.  Also, I had my '77
insured with them (very pleased) until I changed the status of my '77,
after restoration, from a daily driver to a collector car.  Then I went to
Grundy Insurance and have been pleased with them.  Here is their link:

Thank you for your service also!

Hagerty is great, but it requires that you have a daily driver that is 25 years or less. That's the real reason I bought the BMW. It's really inexpensive, but again you have to have a daily driver that is newer.
Vehicles:

- 1972 Plymouth Duster (To be a Pro Street)
- 1973 Ford Pinto wagon (registered ride 195)
- 1976 Mustang II mini-stock
- 1978 Mustang King Cobra II
- 1979 Ford Pinto Runabout
- 1986 Chevy K5 Blazer
- 1997 Suzuki Marauder

Thank you for your service as well!

I recently switched from Progressive to eSurance, neither of which had an issue insuring my 72. ESurance was just north of 1/3 the 6 month premium of Progressive ($257 vs almost $700/6 mos) for the same 2 cars/drivers/situation for better coverage (though we only have liability).

Just throwing out another option for you. Welcome home!

State Farm has a decent classic car program and not much more than Hagerty with glass coverage and everything. Since I dropped the BMW in favor of a 70 Galaxie 500 I had to find an alternative. State Farm was it!!!
