Insure Your Classic Car: Get the Coverage You Need

'72 Buick Skylark

It does not matter if you own a classic Chevy Stylemaster, a Buick Roadmaster, or Chrysler Airflow, you will need to insure the car. Insuring a vintage car is a bit different than insuring your daily automobile. Instead of simply adding your classic car to your regular auto policy, it is worth your time and money to investigate appropriate vintage auto insurance.

New Gas in Old Cars

New Gas in Old Cars

1957 Pontiac Star ChiefWhen you are in the market for an old car, it is important to consider the type of gas you need to use to fill the tank. Many older cars ran on leaded gas, but leaded gas was deemed to be unsafe and was phased out in 1995. This means that older cars with engines designed for “old” gas have to be filled with the unleaded options of today.

While Chevy’s Chevelle came out in 1964 to compete with the Ford Fairlane, it quickly became one of the brand’s best sellers. The key to the car’s success was in the versatility. The Chevelle was a mid-sized car that appealed to many and included body styles from coupes to sedans to wagons and convertibles. Trim levels included the Laguna and upscale Malibu, and when the latter also included the Super Sport package, a classic muscle car was born.

Vintage Car

35 Ford CoupeClassic, antique, collectible, and vintage cars all have different meanings for different people. Some like to stick with strict definitions of what makes a car classic, antique, or vintage, while others use the terms interchangeably. For those who are nitpicky, a vintage car is one that was manufactured sometime between 1919 and 1930. Cars that are at least 45 years old can be classified as antiques according to most enthusiasts. The Classic Car Club of America defines a classic as a car that was made between 1925 and 1948. To further complicate matters, different states have varying rules on registration for antique and classic cars.
