It is called insurance for a reason. Even though he isn't driving it yet it still needs theft and fire protection as well as collision. With a classic car that isn't driven much even when finished theft and fire are the greatest risks.

it's not the issue of not being driven yet, it's the issue of it's been in pieces, literally undriveable for the last 1-2 yrs. what kind of auto policy is that? I myself currently have a vehicle not being driven and is in 'storage' mode, but it only has liability and no loss. With notification, I can drive it with legal coverage the next day. I've never heard of an auto policy that will cover loss of a vehicle that has been in pieces.

The resto shop is bonded ... but when it left the shop, insurance was on me. So I insured it.

My bellyachin is due as much to the increased delay of “DONE” as anything else.

The car is not “in pieces,” it moves under its own power, and I only had it insured when it left for the interior shop last month.

Comprehensive insurance is what it’s called. Like the level required when a loan is made to purchase a vehicle.

It’ll get done ... hopefully before the next lockdown. Smh (sorry to add a twinge there, but it is literally affecting even how we breathe.)

Most recently It affected the acquisition of Polly’s shoes ... wrong lug nuts and missed two of the cragar caps.

We now have THEM. Just need the car from the interior shop to do the final.

Thanks for the posts. Will post more pix as soon as I can.

1961 Impala. 4 door. 283, turbo 350. Imron Midnight blue metallic with silver stripe.
