When it comes to cars there are a few characteristics that insurance companies will look for in order to decide whether it is a classic or standard vehicle. For example any vehicle that is 10 too 24 years of age, and that is a rare make and model due to exceptional workmanship or limited production is considered a classic auto. Anything over 25 years is usually considered an antique.
While you can still purchase insurance policies for these vehicles, they may come with certain restrictions. Here are a few tips and tricks on how you can save some money on your classic car insurance.
