Classic Car Insurance

If there is one thing we know about classic cars, it’s that the people who collect them are passionate about it! When you’ve found your one true love (Yea…forget about your spouse, your kids and your dog), we’re talking about the 4 wheeled beauty parked in your garage, it’s important you protect it properly.

Classic car insurance policies are quite a bit different than your standard auto insurance policies though. Classic cars are a unique, and sometimes costly, investment. For that reason, it’s important that your automobile be insured for the proper amount.

Unlike a standard auto insurance policy, classic cars are insured for an “agreed value” determined by the insured and the insurer at the time the policy is issued. There are also some other factors that are considered when insuring a collector car, for example the amount a mileage that is put on the car. Some collector cars are only driven on the weekend – if that, others are driven cross country to collector car shows and some aren’t driven at all.

Another item to consider when purchasing an insurance policy for your collector car(s) are any limitations that may apply regarding repair shops in the event that your pride and joy needs some work done. Just as you would do the proper research of auto body shops before getting your car repaired, it’s important you do your research when it comes to insurance too. Companies that may be great for insuring your everyday car may not be the best option for your collector car. We advise contacting your insurance agent to find out what companies they recommend for your particular car and type of usage.

What is your favorite book OR book you are reading now?  I just finished reading Safe Haven, but my favorite is probably The Notebook.

Quote you live by: “Feel good, be good & do good.”

Comfort Food: My mom’s chicken pot pie.

If you were stranded on an island and could bring only one (non-electronic) item what would it be? Probably either a knife or a pot to boil water.

What are some items on your “bucket list?” See all of Europe, sky dive & go on a mission trip.

Complete the following sentence: “Ten years from now I hope to be making a difference in the world.”

A song or songs that bring you back to a certain time in your life: Any song from Grease brings back good memories because it’s my favorite movie. Old country songs remind me of truck rides with my dad.

What is your favorite holiday and why? Despite the craziness that sometimes comes with blended families, I love Christmas….especially when spent with children. I also love birthdays – they’re the one day out of the year to fully celebrate that special person.

What is your favorite app on your phone, or the app you use most frequently? Instagram & Weather Channel are probably the most used apps on my phone. I also like Candy Crush, Temple Run, Lumosity & other brain teaser games.

If you could have one super power, what would it be: I’d like to fly.  I’ve always been envious of birds.

Favorite way to wind down from a busy day or get out of a bad mood: Work out or shop. For sure.

Favorite vacation spot(s): Jamaica, Bahamas & Nashville are the top 3 on my list.

If you were given $10k today, how would you spend it? I would keep half for myself to either go shopping or do something at my house or take a trip with my husband…. Then I’d give half away to either a family member/friend in need or to charity, the homeless, my church, etc.

Some more fun facts you may not know about Kacey: She was a cheerleader for 11 years growing up – football & competition. Although she tried other sports like basketball & softball “they didn’t go well” and she didn’t like the uniforms. Kacey says she was very shy at a young age and cheerleading helped her out of her shell.
