WHAAAAAAA. I didn't know you could insure something so new with them.

They're a great company. The only hard part is that the car has to be garaged all the time.

I use American collectors Insurance for the 57 Pickup, and have been pretty happy with them. My corvair will have normally insurance since I want to be able to drive it to work, and to walmart.

I did not think they would either, but my brother recomended it since he has it on his truck (mopar guy). I did not really do it based on the age, it was mainly a mileage thing. Since I drive it less than 1k a year, I gave it a shot thinking 'the worst they could say was no!!', but they said yes!! 282 a year, not bad at all!!

I'll have to keep them in mind if/when I get an old school towing vehicle...I'll have to see if they will insure it if I use it to tow though

Hmmm. I don't think they have a mileage limit, at least, my policy doesn't seem to mention one.

no I guess i was a bit unclear. I meant since I don't drive it that much was the main reason I did it!!

My dad uses Hagerty for the Camaro and Chevelle. I'm really surprised that they did your truck though! I guess sicne it's a specialty vehicle they let it pass?
that is exactly it, I called and they first said no for age alone, but they said if I had a compelling argument they would consider! I sent them pics and specs on my truck's package and aparently it worked!! It is nice to know that they are willing to work 'case by case' to insure folks!

Funny.............I currenty use GEICO and it only costs me $106 EACH (basic cov.) a year for my Z-28 and GTO as addl. cars on my policy.
Heck ......my Truck and Caddy are only $245 each with full coverage.

But.....I am old so my insurance is cheaper........LOL!

Age will definitely play a huge factor in the price of your insurance. It sounds like you are getting a pretty decent deal from the Gecko.
