Those who love classic cars are willing to spend the bucks to both own and restore them to their original condition. Regardless of where you are in America, these cars evoke a certain feeling in all of us. Even if we weren't alive to experience the small-town pride that existed both during and after the wars, these cars remind of us of how great this country is and how far we've come as a nation.
That's why you can't afford to let anything come between you and your baby. Classic car insurance saves the collector from unforeseen damage, and there's a lot of it out there even if you're doing a restoration project only. From storms that come out of nowhere to neighbors who throw a baseball just a tad too hard, you can find a policy to protect your investment from different threats in your area. If you're planning to drive the car, then there's nothing better than taking it to the Pacific Coast Highway where you can enjoy the ocean in all its glory — preferably with the top down. Make sure no harm comes to it both when you're out and when you're at home.
Each letter in CHROME® represents a different type of SPECIALTY VEHICLE we insure:
