i know for me i am looking at building mine and finishing...well in the good old state of NC since 2004 i think if it is not built on a pan(fiberglass buggys) then it will be tittled as a "custom vehicle" which could save you money since you say its a car...not a offroad toy...should help drop but i knwo all the laws are different....what state are you in?

Geico wont touch home builts. Old Yeller is titled as one. You cant fake it with a Beetle title either. I asked. If you have a claim & its not a Bug they will deny the claim. State Farm covers em though.

These folks will do it , too. Pretty cheap, too.
Easy to get coverage and they pay out no problem.
Got a few buddies with show cars that use them.
One had to make a claim and it was paid quickly and with no bs.

here in alabama my local alfa rep said as long as i had a tag and title for it he would insure it but he also said that he used to own one himself so maybe he was cutting me some slack but thats who i have all my auto insurance with so maybe that made a difference also :|

Mine is through State Farm and it's written up as a "roadster." I've tried finding cheaper but so far no one can beat SF with all the discounts I get (lots of vehicles and home)

I live about 30 miles north of Indy,in the great small town of Atlanta. I have American Families Ins. and my buggy is titled as an on-road/off-road vw dunebuggy...I think my ins. is around $27.00 a month for Lia.
with that being said, I think its cheap due to how that State Of Indiana titled it, I have a Motorcycle tag,because of the way its titled, I dont have to have a windsheild or fenders. I do have to wear glasses and I also have to have a M/C endorsment on my D/L....nor do i have to wear seatbelts but I always Do !
