What About Insurance For An Antique Car?

May 26, 2008
Are you one of those lucky antique car owners? Do you like going to local meetings were people display their antique cars. Maybe you like to take your antique car to parades or national car shows? If so, how do you have that car insured? Are you paying for insurance coverage you don't need.

Antique cars have special insurance policies because they are not used like everyday cars. They are usually stored away safely most of the time and only taken out for special occasions, like parades and car shows. Heaven forbid that they get mud or grease on them from driving on a sloppy day or speeding down the highway. A few finger prints is about all they can handle. To offer their special rates, antique car insurance policies are packed with restrictions and requirements.

There are special antique auto insurance policies you can get for your antique car. They often have some restrictions such as having the car secured in a garage and that it can not be used for pleasure drives. They must only be used according to what the policy allows.

You may find that if you are only driving your car to club meetings, parades and special events that you are paying way too much for you antique auto insurance. An antique car is an investment. Many times the parts and the car itself can not be replaced. That is why antique auto insurance has certain restrictions. They do not want you to take unnecessary risks but they are willing to give you a decent premium if you take certain precautions.

Some people confuse classic cars and antique cars. Antique cars are much older than classic cars. Classic cars only have to be 15 years old where antique cars have to be at least 25 years old. Muscle and kit cars are also different as they are used for racing speed and leisure. Antique auto insurance does not cover these muscle cars because they are at higher risk for being damaged.

If you have an old car you're proud of, consider getting antique auto insurance so that it doesn't need to just sit in the garage. Shop around a little to get a good deal. It isn't as expensive as you may think it is. Since the car is driven so infrequently there is not much risk for the insurance company so they don't charge as much as they do for your everyday car.
