New Insurance for modified cars?

New Insurance for modified cars?

Postby TomsGT4 » Mon Jan 24, 2005 3:01 pm

I got this info e-mailed to me from a buddy of mine who owns a modified VW Corrado. Think it will happen?

VW Corrado wrote:There's this guy is trying to get 5000 people together and hopes to peg the price at 1500 per year. The result is that as long as you have a clean record you can do whatever you want to your car and race ON RACETRACKS as much as you want as long as your car is street legal and you will not get dropped from insurance. sign up here if you want to stay legal. now don't be some stupid little kid who thinks it's cool to break the rules, the insurance companies will tear you and your wallet a new a$$hole if they want and you'll be totally broke if you're unlucky.

Hey, how's it going.

What year are you looking for?
87-89 (ST165)
90-93 (ST185)

I believe I own the only ST185 south of London.
Closest to Windsor (in Canada) that I've seen one was a red one in Guelph about 3 years ago.
Not too sure of the 165's though. No way tell at a glance if they are a GTS or an Alltrac.

My buddy told me recently that this was shot dead. Not sure if it's true though.
And I don't think insurance companies would allow it.
Are insurance companies money grubbing S#!@-heads all across the world? You should see how nice my insurance offices are here in Windsor. Marble entrance, expensive coffee shop in the lobby with leather couches and a 15 foot reception desk made from hard wood.
Sometimes I wish we didn't have to get insurance & take our chances.

I was kinda bummed about that, and ive been searchin everywhere for one, cause i got enough money to buy a car now
