Heacock is what I have. I think its 25 or 26, I don't remember off hand. If you want to insure them at a younger age, they have a kicker, 30% or something like that. Really makes it unaffordable for a young person. I said to the Heacock rep, my boys helped me rebuild this car over the course of a few years. Without them, I could not have gotten it done and now they cant even drive the thing without being hit with a premium for insurance. The answer was yes. Fooey! Horsehockey! Bull Puckey! What a load of you know what. Those boys are way more careful with the car then I am, lol.
So I ended up teaching my youngest how to drive the car in a private parking lot, get his sea legs with the old school four speed, and then let him run the car down the dragstrip at this year's Nationals. This will have to do until he hits 25. No way can I give time with my boys and the car up. So I understand your complaint and 100 percent agree. It stinks, plain and simple.
So I will take whatever opportunity I can get whenever I can get it.
Is the insurance with the 'new driver' premium any more than the insurance adder for your normal policy? I was always under the impression from talking to insurance companies that you insure every legal driver in the household? For instance, I can't eliminate my kids from my policy that has my modern Challenger even though they drive a beat up pick up with liability only. I know that the collector cars is a different policy...
