Collectible Auto’s aren’t for everyday driving and our Collectible enthusiast wouldn’t dream of driving their cars unless its sunny and 75 degrees. These special automobiles are reserved for Shows and parades along with an occasional Sunday drive to keep all the parts working properly. Collectible autos are more than just Antique cars, they include;
- Muscle Cars
- Hot rods
- Kit cars

Owners of these vehicles put time, effort and usually a lot of money into their cars. It’s not just a standard vehicle and that’s why specialty insurance is so important.
