Re: Collector Car Insurance

That's surprising. I have Grundy on my car (77 trans am) and the price for agreed value is very cheap in my mind. I pay less than $200 for $30k coverage. I specifically asked (called and talked to...

Re: Schwalms

I think for the cost of the rebuild, and before I would bash them, I would get in my car and drive there and talk to them in person, rather than relying on one errant phone call. Length of time may...

Re: Vintage clock repair ?

There is a fellow in Minn (I think), goes by Jerrys clock works (maybe). Sorry for being vague but it has been a while since I used his service. He had about a week turn around time and was very...

Re: Insuring '28 coupe

Not an A, but I have Grundy. Less than $200 for over $30k agreed value. Towing and repairs up to around $300 is covered. They will also insure cars under construction. I think the antique policies...

Re: Greyhound shipping advice offered

Didn't know you could ship through Fastenal, interesting. I had an acquaintance that bought a Porsche seat and it was shipped through greyhound. Several years later it still hasn't arrived! I guess...

Re: Will I fit in a Roadster??

A few years ago my brother was ready to buy an A. He is a well read, intelligent person and had subscribed to the MARC, did a lot of investigation, and was well versed in Model A's. He went to a...

Re: License plates

In Maryland there is no additional fee for a YOM plate. You must register your vehicle in the historic plate category, then you carry the new one in the car with the YOM displayed. At least here, its...

Re: Prohibition and Canadian A's

I misunderstood your original post. I thought you meant it was smuggled by way of new cars being transported into the states. I will retract my original statement and add that I think the idea is...

Re: World Wide Investments & Stephen Edwards. Do you know them?

WoW! Theres a lot on their website. I think he may need some grammar lessons, he certainly says you (instead of your, you're) too much. May be legit, but who knows? He goes out of his way to convince...

Re: Across USA road trip

Another thing to think about, ending your journey at or near a major auction or show and sell the car on the spot. Hershey would work for an early fall destination. This way your worries are a bit...

Re: Window glass

I know for residential use, tempered glass always has a small stamp/mark on it near a corner for identification, no idea if this is done in the auto industry as well.

Re: what does "insurance" on shipping actually cover?

If they are particular about the way an item is packaged, would one be better off letting the UPS store do that part? Assuming that they will put it in an approved box.

Re: what does "insurance" on shipping actually cover?
