Re: Hagerty insurance ?

Hagerty here also, about 15 yrs, 1st on the Model A and now on the 40. NO claims and I think reasonable (cheap) compared to daily driver.

Re: Insurance policy w/o liability?

Hagerty is a little over the hundred(depending on how much you value the car).
Unless you're strapped for cash I would just go ahead and get it. JMO
