Love (And Protect) Your Classic Car

(NAPSI)-As America's baby boomers grow older, their interest in collectible, antique classic cars also grows. For those unfamiliar with this trend, collectible vehicles include everything from classics and antiques to exotics, street rods, pro-street race cars, replicas and custom trucks.

The good news is that when boomers say "I do" to their classic cars, there's now a more economical way to insure the classic and collector car. This can be a nice plus in an economy that's down right now.

Classic car owners who treat their cars as prized possessions- with a mentality of "nobody touches my car but me"-can now insure their prize possession with an economy plan when they drop their mileage. This is not hard, since most car collectors often drive fewer than 1,000 miles a year.

What's Your Classic Car Worth?

Of further interest is that these cars can also be worth a lot. Cars from the late 1960s and early 1970s-which baby boomers yearned for at the time but couldn't afford-are rising in value. For example, a few years ago you could buy a 1969 Camaro for $12,500 to $25,000, depending on the model. Now, the '69 Camaros range from $40,000 to $100,000.

Classic Auto Insurance, which specializes in writing coverage for classic cars, points out that its economy plan includes $0 deductible, agreed value and a free roadside assistance program.

Roadside Assistance Free With Insurance Plan

If a customer needs to access the roadside assistance, he or she simply calls the Driver Club for help and a representative will ensure safety first, then locate the most qualified service provider in the area. The customer will receive pertinent information, such as who the service provider is and when they'll arrive. Within the guaranteed time frame, the service provider will arrive to assist the customer. Customers simply sign the road service invoice after service is rendered and drive away with no out-of-pocket expenses.

All this can be further good news for classic-car owners who are turned away by traditional insurers that won't write policies for classic cars.
