Insurance salesman story

Recommended Posts

I called the insurance guy today, he was going through the list of cars, he got to 1974 BMW, and he said "are you selling it?" Then I said" no, do you have one?" and he told me about how he used to have one back in the day when it was new. You never know where a 2002 will pop up, real or in memory.

There was an insurance guy here in Chico back in the mid 80's who had a 74 Tii. It had weird homade flares in the back with larger back wheels. It had a few different owners and eventually landed in the Pik-N pull about 4 years ago. We went and harvested all of the Tii parts ( engine was gone). I have the rear trialling arms and Front Tii struts on my car now. I was talking to the lady who has been cutting my hair for years. Turns out the car used to be her X husbands and she was shocked to find out that some of the parts are on my car now.

My insurance agent argued vehemently with me that a 7-digit VIN was too short, that I didn't know what I was talking about, and that I should go to my car and read her the VIN by looking at the front of the dashboard through the driver's side windshield. At that point, I figured it wasn't worth mentioning that the motor was actually 2.3 liters instead of stock 2.0 liters. She was kind enough to inform me that if I install my roll cage, my insurance will go up by $600 per year, since cars that have roll cages are statistically more likely to get in an accident.

Ha! Exact same thing with my insurance. They were polite about it, but they were like "Where are you reading that number? The VIN is usually on the dash."

Yeah, I would say at least half of the people who talk to me about the car have a "never should have sold it" story to tell. My response is always "buy another one!"
