insurance for old cars



hello.

just wondering...does anyone know any insurance companies that will insure an old car like my 90 E30?

every time i try its too old to be insured...and i really need to find cheaper insurance for the car.

classic insurance isnt even an option, as i'm only 20. ihave to be 25 to insure a classic -_-

thanks.

Desjardin seemed to have the most reasonable rates alongside belair when I was shopping a little over a month ago.

No.

I tried to get my car insured as a "collector" through a company and I couldn't because it's a wagon. Their argument is because it's a wagon it might be used to haul shit around in it.

It was gonna be a $140.00 a YEAR insurance payment with restrictions on kms but ......... so sad. I have to stick with my $290/ month payment with belair for 2 cars.

so you're saying that I can't insure this as a collectors car because it has the ability to carry enough shit to be more convenient than a sedan/coupe?
