some tricks


For those of you with lots of stuff, this has worked for me. I insure:

87 SDL
92 Mustang 5.0 convertible
93 Lincoln MVIII (290 hp)
96 Ford E-150 conv van

Full coverages, $500 collision, but with the lowest liability coverage. Total is around $2k/year for 2 adult, clean record drivers driving around 50K miles/year.

I also insure:

350 hp ski boat
pontoon boat

So my (State Farm ) agent recommended to lower all policies to minimum liability, then add an umbrella liability coverage policy for $2M. The net is my overall bill is less and coverage is higher. I think the umbrella policy is about $170/year.

My 300D is a weekend car which enables me to get something called "Collectors Car Insurance". Liability and collision runs me a grand total of $72 a YEAR! The restrictions are: I can only drive it 2500 miles a year and no one in my household can drive it unless they have 10 years of driving experience.

Check out:

'79 300D, "Liesel von Diesel", 235K

I kid proofed the house....but they still get in

I checked classic car insureance. It would be $102/year without liability. About $350 with liability. That's because of a >$100 surcharge to the MCCA fund (Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association). What a ripoff!
