Insurance on classic cars

I've used Citizens and State Farm and both charge around 400 a year. It depends on the appraised value of the car. You need an appraisal and then they'll write a policy for what the car appraised at. The nice part about State Farm is they let you drop to just comprehensive in the winter if you don't drive it.

There is also a company called Hagerty that specializes in classic car insurance. They are supposed to be reasonable. They have no mileage limits, but they do have age restrictions and I believe the car needs to be garaged and not parked outside. You can check hagerty.com.

HOLY COW!!!

Great tip on the insurance! $127 for a full year with $3000 worth of collision coverage. Having collector/historical plates on the car saves a ton. These guys are nation wide, so don't hesitate to call them.

You need to have it garage kept, and each driver in the house needs to have another car as primary.

No problem, we should be there all afternoon, so if you want to come later, that is ok, too.

Better yet, bring the whole team down. We can get them all hooked on Opels also!

sway bars

Gang; Friday I received my front and rear sway bars from Opel GT Source. Now I have to finish replacing my oil pan gasket and replacing my rear differential gasket. This was the winter I repaired my leaks.Got to have it all done for our June meet. Jim

Would you mind terribly if a Opel-less loser peeked from behind a tree?
I'll keep watching this thread to see if anything happens closer to me (west side of the state).

You and me both.
Don't rub it in. I talked to my old man yesterday (I've been trying to get him to go look at one in Florida for me) and he starts off the conversation telling me he bought it (something he is prone to do).
Of course he was kidding, I wasn't amused.

if you got a fair hand with body work i have a car stripped down... i got another one, so i don't want it anymore, and we can work out an arrangement for you to get the engine outta the car that works (the one that got stripped has a fully rebuilt engine sitting in patient wait for me)

Nope, I'm looking for one already in decent shape. Much rather drop 5K and drive it. Will probably go back into wait and watch mode. Wouldn't mind networking with Michigan Opel dudes though. There was once an Opel club in Grand Rapids, saw it mentioned somewhere. Anyone know what happened to that?

Hi All,
I am back! I have been out of Opel time for the last 3 months, but it is now time to get rolling again as my machine shop FINALLY called to tell me it is about done! He has had it since Feb or Mar. I can't even remember! We should get together near Lansing next month if anyone wants to!
