Jim said he had a picture of the car, the last day he drove it. He gave us that picture and said we could keep it. Here's Jim in his car in 1977:

To me, these classic cars represent the simplicity of life during those times. War was going on, but peace back home. We cherish those times.
Every time we sit in these cars, it's not about the noise the engines make or the horsepower, it's about a memory of simpler times, and an effort to get it back again.
Feeling the past. Reliving the dream.

Here is an idea if your Firebird or T/A isn't running SHUT-UP, you don't have a say.. If its 500 miles or less I will be there, otherwise doubt it.. Just the way it is..

Haven't been on for a while since the '68 T/A is finished and gone.
But I wanted to let you guys know about an issue with Hagerty Collector Insurance that boggles my mind!
I have a friend with a '71 AMX that recently got T Boned and totaled the car. He was insured with Hagerty and had a declared value of $25,000. Now Hagerty is trying to screw him and offering him only $11,000 for the total loss. This was a nice, nice car.
To top it off, On Hagerty's website, they list the top Five future money maker investment cars for the future. A '70 Javelin is No. 1 and No. 3 is the '71 AMX stating it's current value at 3 times what they are offering my friend. THIS IS A BIG TIME SCREW JOB BY HAGERTY!
If you are insured by Hagerty, buyer beware. If you don't like this game with our collector car hobby, let them know at:

We shouldn't take this crap no matter what we drive!!!!!
That really does bite the big one. And apparently, it's the dirty little secret that doesn't get told. I just had a discussion with my Farmer's agent yesterday. Now that my daughter has her own car, I will start using the Prizm as my DD again. So I am considering putting the Firehawk on the same policy that Gray Ghost is on with American Collectors. My agent said that all three of the major insurers of hobby cars (American Collectors, Grundy and Haggardy) will scrutinize the car to see if you put more miles on it in a year than the policy calls for or were using it to go to work, etc. in order to deny payout or offer only a partial settlement. So it is definately buyer beware. You have to read the fine print and abide by all the constraints.
By the way, I originally tried to insure with Haggardy when I first got Gray Ghost. At the time, they told me an 18-year-old TA in it's condition was not deemed rare or collectible enough for them to insure. American Collectors accepted me without any issues. In fact, they automatically increase the agreed value each year at no additional premium. What started as a $7,500 policy is now written as a $12,000 limit. But I know that Gray Ghost isn't worth anywhere near that much. Fortunately, I've never had to file a claim. To me, the benefit is being able to produce evidence of coverage as required by the state at a ridiculously low rate as compared to regular car insurance. I figure if there ever is a wreck, I'm hosed anyway with regard to the car, but am covered for any damage sustained by others if it is judged to be my fault.
A side note - why didn't the driver that T-boned the AMX get the ticket and have to pay for the loss?
