Hi All
I have just purchased a 2001 C5 for approx $25k. The insurance company does not want to cover the car only third party as they say the book value is only around $12k. Is there such a thing as classic car insurance that cover these oldies or do you just hope you dont have an accident. ( I'm in Waterloo Ontario)
Thanks in advance,

A real good insurance company and/or broker (who wants your business),
has always been my valued resource when needed.
I had a rare ram air package upgrade to a '98 Grand Prix GTP/GTX and my insurance broker helped
me through it all ... eventually, I ended up not keeping up the "annual effort" as it did wear on me.
Began to realize the car really had more value to me than what insurance/appraisal would agree with.
Photos, appraisal, numerous back & forth insuring "initial here & there and sign on the bottom".
Nevertheless ... a real good broker may work for you as it did for me at the time :Confused5:
(I'm in Alberta and with a Professional Group Insurance Broker)

HAGERTY or Insurance thru your local Auto Club May provide you with ‘agreed value’ options for coverage.

I second Graham on the Hagerty. I had my old Camaro insured through them and aside from the paperwork, it was a great experience. The local broker was very helpful in getting it done and at a very reasonable price.

I will also recommend Hagerty. Just recently switched my '99 Coupe to Hagerty from the insurance company that I have everything else with. Saved a little bit (at least $50/year) and now I don't have to bother with calling to put insurance on in the spring and removing it in the fall, as Hagerty is year round coverage. I did everything online (I didn't actually speak to a person) and part of the application process asked how much the car was worth. I said $20k and it was not questioned. I am assuming I am paying higher premiums than if I had said it was worth $12k. It took 2-3 days from filling out the application online to getting confirmation that insurance was in place. Hope this helps.

You may also want to call Jason Wilson at Reeds Insurance (Vintage Auto Insurance) in Lindsay Ont. 800 307-7066 It's important to note that an appraisal is a must !
The important clause on your insurance is a 19A clause. Agreed value in case of a bad accident. (with appraisal)
I have this on my 07 .... I can also take the liability off for the winter and maintain fire and theft. That will save you a lot of cash.
I don't believe that Hagerty has that option.
Good luck
