Hi Im thinking about getting a 2002 and i was wondering if anybody has recommendations for classic car insurance or regular for the 2002. Im in Brooklyn so i know itll be pretty pricey. Im Coming from the UK so have only just got my US license but have been driving since i was a teenager.

Thanks.

Do you have another car and a locked garage? If not, you cannot get classic car coverage. Generally, you will need a daily driver car and a locked garage (or off-site storage) to qualify for collector car coverage. So, if you don't have those, you will just have to rely on a traditional insurer.

Several good classic insurers out there to include Grundy, Hagerty and American Collectors to name but 3.

Hi Hume,

I live in Brooklyn too and as explained above, I couldn't get classic car insurance because I don't have a locked garage; or a garage for that matter. Hagerty was willing to make the exception of me not having another car for daily use since I take the subway to work, but no garage was the end of that.

I added my 2002 to my existing auto policy that I have for my wife's car. The rate wasn't much more than the Hagerty quote for full coverage; theft, glass, etc. I use Travelers and they've been good so far. Try calling C&A brokers in Chinatown. (212) 431-8101 and ask for Robert. He's super helpful.

I did the same. Added it to my USAA policy, and it was effectively free for full coverage. (Buried the premium in discounts)

It's still covered, actually... Even though it is currently in tiny pieces scattered around my garage, with the shell upside-down on a rotisserie...
