Anyone ever insure a 2002 with a roll cage?

I am in the final throws of transacting on an 2002 purchase (after searching for the right car for several years). The car is heavily modified and has a carefully integrated cage with removable diagonals across the doors and rear seat, so the cage is not very intrusive unless those pieces are in place. I sent a RFQ (with pics of the car) to State Farm (where I have my modern stuff insured) and Hagerty (who insures several of my older cars) and both declined the car because of the cage as they considered it track equipped. I plan on talking to humans in the am to see if I can make sense out of this. I really have no plan to track the car, though all of my cars might get autoX'ed or see an occasional track day. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with this. Thanks.

Hagerty insures my A/X car with a 6 point cage. Of course if I destroy it in a track or autocross event there will be no coverage. If it gets stolen, falls off the trailer on the way to an event or gets smacked up in the parking lot or paddock they will provide coverage. Basically I have it insured for the liability so I will have coverage if something should happen to somebody else or their car.

Thanks. That's helpful. My guess is that they did not want to send out an internet quote without getting more info on the car and how it will be used, and that NO was just a starting point. I will report back.

Not to sure on what to say, if you can't insure it will this keep you from buying the car?
I am not in the habit of buying cars I can't drive. That said, after talking with the insurance humans today, I do not think it will be a problem

Plan on closing it up on Wed. (after the storm, you can relate to that). Pics to follow when it arrives. I am very excited as I have been 02less for a while.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
