Two claims in a short period of time puts up a big red flag with the insurance company. You may have screwed yourself.

This puts you on their watch list as a liability. And they all share info...

Re: Dearborn Hotel Update!

That's a great place to stay especially if you are a Ford devotee! Fun to walk the building and see the big matted prints of the early Fords T's-A's-V/8's-Lincolns plus the history of the place.

Re: Prices Up ?

figment I wouldn't sell any old car on E-Bay w/o a reserve price. Otherwise you are taking a terrible risk. Set your reserve shy of what the car is worth and it will sell. If not, so be it and move...

Re: Prices Up ?

I tend to agree.

I also believe that '30-'31 Roadsters, Deluxe and Standard, will always be in demand. The rodders want good ones too.

Re: So what is an AR?

That's easy. Chambered in the ever capable 5.56 mm or .223 for civilian lingo! And 'no' the AR does not mean 'Assault Rifle' as the news media contends it stand for ArmaLite:)

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

I agree. All you need to do. Be honest and price the car reasonable, what it is truly worth.

Do that and the car will sell itself.
