One of the things I like most about being an independent insurance agent is being able to insure our clients' passions along with their assets. One of my favorite passions is classic cars and motorcycles. I decided to write about this type of coverage today because our sponsorship of Mustang Fest 2014 which is held on the USS Lexington this year in Corpus Christi, TX.
Moore Insurance Agency has many great insurance companies that will provide specific classic coverage for classic cars, classic motorcycles, military vehicles, and even classic tractors. The pricing is unbelievable, but typically the exposure is significantly less than your "every day" vehicle so there is no reason not to take advantage of that savings. Some of my favorite vehicles we have insured for our clients are:
One of my favorite Exotics we have insured is a 2005 Maserati Grand Sport. Perhaps the reason for this is because our client let me take it for a spin and the Ferrari based motor and the paddle shifting was extraordinary.
- 1929 Ford Model A
- 1955 Ford Thunderbird
- 1957 Chevy Corvette
- 1962 Cadillac Series 62
- 1981 Delorean DMC-12
- 1977 MGB
- 1970 Porsche 911T Targa
- 1970 Dodge Coronet R/T
- and too many others to list.
Classic Motorcycles is an area that Moore Insurance Agency has quite a bit of knowledge about. We have several large collections insured that not only allows for insuring the motorcycles but also memorabilia that corresponds with the collection. It is a nice added bonus that is sometimes not thought of as insurable items. I have way too many favorites that we have insured for classic motorcycles but my top 5 are:
If you have time to make it out to the Lake O’ the Pines Rallye in North East Texas please do, and you will not be disappointed.
- 1951 Vincent White Shadow
- 1952 Norton ES2
- 1952 BMW R50
- 1953 Harley Davidson K model
- 1967 Norton 750 Fastback
