So far, all of my dealings with Classic insurance.....as to driving times. You can always test drive after working on your car,,,:shakehands:
You might get surprised, they might be doing you a favorJust got a letter from my insurance co. They are telling me that since I do not have Historical plates on the car, they will have to increase my policy. So I called and no one knows how much my policy will go up.
I do not want Historical plates, because that will limit your driving and I know guys who have received tickets for having these plates on there car while driving around town.
So I guess it's time to look around and get some quotes and be prepared for the increase from my insurance co.
Thats my feelings completely " I love to drive my 57 when I am ready to drive it"I will not run the "antique plates" due to all the fine print restrictions. I have friends that have them and keep hearing 'why don`t you get them, then no inspection sticker". I keep telling them one of these days that plate will cost them. I love to drive my 57 when i am ready to drive it.
antique plates work for me here too. always test driving them. :winking0070:I have antique tags...rules are...no driving for work or used as a primary vehicle. In NJ the State encourages driving it for educational purposes, to shows, to have repaired, test drives. My 57 is always driven for the intended purposes.
One should always remember that EACH STATE has their own laws, rules and regulations when it comes to historical, antique and other specialty plates. Texas even has a restriction about the trans & engine that can be used with antique plates and makes it a FELONY offense if you sign the application with false information :dong:Red, take a look at original year plates. That's what I have and when I registered it it was a lifetime registration, it even has stamped on it non-expiring. It cost me $35.00 dollars 13 years ago. I have never had an issue while driving my car and I even painted the plate purple and white to match my car. I know your not supposed to do this but it had never been an issue. Now my car is not a daily driver and you know here in MI there is a car show every night somewhere so you a covered.
I also have been with Grundy for my insurance and they have very reasonable rates and it is an agreed policy. I would look into them also,
Larry, tell me more. I think I know someone who is at risk.Texas even has a restriction about the trans & engine that can be used with antique plates
On the APPLICATION FOR ANTIQUE LICENSE PLATES (TEXAS)Larry, tell me more. I think I know someone who is at risk.
