Sure he can find insurance for your car, he just can't find it for a 22 yr old driver with speeding tickets driving your car! And classic car insurance is generally not for daily drivers, it's for cars that are just driven to shows and for pleasure etc.

I only have 1 ticket left on my record and it's gone next year. I wanted classic car because I don't plan on driving everyday, just on weekends and maybe not even then, mostly just for meets and the cruises. I'll be working in-town so I plan to use a bike since the CF makes you do a Express test upon BMQ entry so might as well bike locally to work and get in shape.

She/He may be with a smaller brokerage and only have contracts with a few companies.

1 ticket shouldn't be hurting you that bad if at all, it's your age. Sub 25 yr old male = small fortune.

Even if you haven't been driving for a year, as long you can prove prior insurance experience you should be ok. Have you never been listed on a policy as a driver? even as an occasional counts!

Yea, age really sucks when it comes to being a guy.. oh well =\

I had my 04 under myself and was paying 340$ for a full year and a couple months before I got rid of the car. So I do have prior insurance policies. I called Barry @ Roughly Insurance in Oshawa (My parents are under him for their insurance) and he couldn't find anyone that would insure a 20+ old car. I told him my buddy Matt is 20yrs old with the same car but a 88 and he's under the same insurance broker but with Aviva and he's paying around 260ish. I just don't understand WTF is going on :S This insurance crap is really throwing me for a loop. So I'm going today to get the plates transfer along with the ownership but I'm hoping that the MTO will take my old policy for my old car and give me a temp so I can get a safety done in T.O. who knows tho.... this whole thing is just ugly >_< Seriously getting pissed off about this insurance bullshit.. anyone else have any problems insuring a 20+ old car as a daily?

Silver wheels will actually randomly come to your home and ask to see the car. if it isn't in the garage then you will have a problem. (Grin)
