Huh? For what, a potential agent? A lot of folks here use Drew (I dont as at the we talked he could not sell in MA):


Yes, for an agent. Classis was one and I think another was thrown out too.

I was exchanging messages with HIGH HP, here. He lives in Spokane and knows of 5-6 cars there (his is red). Touch base with him....

Are they a seller (with possession) or just a lister? I'd suspect they were scams posted from nigeria and got caught.

Drew at Classic had the best rates for NV.

If you have other older cars in a collection then Barrett Jackson (rebranded AIG Private Client Group) will give a discount on the Ford GT but their normal rate is $1/$1000 coverage for an agreed value policy. In addition the agency that brokers BJ/AIG also can do your daily driver and homeowners through Auto Owners (in some states) and their coverage and rates were the best by far when we were in Colorado, but alas, they don't write policies in NV. The firm that brokers BJ/AIG also does other carriers now and can quote multiple carriers. To contact them go to www.barrett-jackson.com/insurance

All that said, I ended up with Drew for almost 5 years.

SOME '05's have;

-'band-aids' on rear clamshell
-if I recall properly, some had a different carbon fiber skeleton for the clamshell - (this I need to verify)
-sleeved engines
-aluminum door trim required improved fasteners
-billet aluminum 'A' arms
-most '05's have front radiator screen, whereas '06's do not.

No such thing as a free lunch
 
Robbin at Midwest Classic Insurance has great policies, service, and price. They cover all my collector cars (including my GT) and motorcycles.

Pre production prototypes had a CF weave, vs the "chopped" look of production cars. Dont think any production cars have anything other than the "chopped" appearance.

Back in LA until you check the address.

I was scammed last summer by this company out of Houston

I wonder if it's the same group of people.
If anybody knows of ERSGears could you please put a bag of dog crap on their front porch and you know what to do.
Better yet if you know some authorities that might put a stop to these scams, that would be fabulous!

Kingman , LONG TIME MY FRIEND......What your referring to with the front hood was...
2005 were complicated to process , the inside that you see had a rough or fiberglass black finish raw.
ACR / JOE TAVERNAS company got AWARDED the second batch or 2006 hoods using his process that save 4 steps and save 35%
per hood and gave the inside hood a SMOOTH FINISH...….Another reason if you see a 2005 with a smooth inside trunk that it was hit and replaced.
Like the billet control arms...….acs never remade or Ford the first series hoods....
Another reason if your buying a DRIVER for an early 2006.
Again IMHO vin 1,000 to end of 2005 was the best overall built with the billet arms , front grill and all the rest.
Another memory lane story.....

Thanks for your inputs. I tried my insurance co first, Farmers. They quoted $3000+. I've found it for half through Classic.
Hagerty won't insure me because I've never owned a supercar.
Grundy's was $3k+ too.

How did Autodynamics hose you over? They are pretty well thought of here, and they had the car I really wish I had bought.

It depends on where you live but mine through Drew for a Heritage in Vegas was over 3K. Vegas very expensive

Autodynamics did not scam me.
ERSGears did scam me. They were supposed to remake some gears for me. I sent them the gears and $$$. Thankfully I got the gears back but no money.
