Those types of places are always interesting. Thanks for the post. With as many miles as we put in each day I am sure there would not be enough time to fully enjoy the museum, but I am always open to new adventures.

Have a question for you guys.

 

I was going to call my insurance company to take the car out of storage next week. Even though my record is squeaky clean the rates on these cars is unbelievable. I have Auto Owners.

 

I have 5 cars and a UTV Ranger and I don't even get a multi car discount.

 

Jim you have two cars and Don you do also. What insurance companies do you two use and what kind of rate?

Check with State Farm and then with Liberty Mutual.

 

Lib Mut. saved us $500 over what St Farm was charging us and I remember an Allstate agent saying that he couldn't get anywhere near the St Farm rate. Geicos quote was double the St Farm rate.

Cliff, the Shelby has coverage with Barrett-Jackson Ins Program 877 545 2522 with a yearly premium of $407.00 and the Boss is with a three car group rate with Geico at $960.00. The Shelby is covered only if primarily used in car club activities, exhibitions, parades, or for a private collection and used only infrequently for other purposes.

Thanks guys. I've been traveling since I posted so when I get home late Easter Sunday I'll try to do some research. I'm heading back out of town Monday for the week. If not I'll do it when I get back on the 21st

Hopefully you can make it Peter. I was a Jeff's house Friday night and we took his gt500 out for dinner and I said be mean to the boss.

 

It worked as he got the time off so now we have 12 confirmed.

 

Will be a great time. Now let's hope mother nature cooperates. I get mine out of storage this Friday.

Yeah a trailer that they tow around behind their motorhome so the car flower doesn't get too many miles on it!.

I guess that's better than pulling their motorhome with the Shelby.

Their Floridians, so anything is possible. Wait until you see them in action next week. Clean air a much different than salt air and trees are much different than sand, but they will survive.
