[Healeys] Off Reservation

 OK, I will check out California Car Covers.. Seems to be a consensus there.  I just got off the phone with both Hagerty and my present insurance provider for my Bugeye, JC Taylor.  Hagerty wanted $147 per year full coverage.  I gave them a value of $6000.  Just what I am paying for the car.  To add it to my present policy with JC Taylor is an additional $67 per year.  Kind of a no brainer.  Although JC Taylor has a 4000 mile per year limit it should not be a problem.  My Bugeye is lucky to get 500 miles per year these days.  Splitting the mileage between the two should keep it under anyway.

My Hagerty policy does not have a mileage limitation, and the only limitation is not racing it.  As for car covers, I like California Car Cover.  Wide selection of choices for indoor and outdoor protection.

Good Morning Mike


Some (most?) classic car insurance limits the amount of “daily driver” activities you can do with your classic car.  I’d check with your insurance broker as he/she should be able to provide you with some good advice on which way to go.

     Going off the reservation a bit.  This Saturday I am picking up a 1969 MGB GT from a local British car mechanic.  Only two problems with it are a 2018 registration and a weak battery.  The engine has a Weber side draft carb, wire wheels, good paint and no radio.  I wanted something I could lock up when I go in the store.  At least I can drive it over the winter months. 

     What kind of insurance should I get for this car?  Classic car insurance?  Regular insurance will just insure it as an old car.  I don't have room for it in my garage.  What's a good car cover?

     Don't worry, still have the Bugeye and the BN2.  That won't change
