So as I was talking with Sam (unagijones) earlier today about exhausts and what not, and I told him my NSX is exempt from emissions because I have collectors car insurance through Grundy. So I promise to get back to him with more info for the emissions exempt law for collector cars. For those of you outside of Phoenix and Tucson and live out in the sticks, you are probably emissions exempt anyway. So if you can get collectors car insurance through companies like Hagerty, Grundy, etc; your car will be emissions exempt. Why would it matter to some of us anyway? Well I run test pipes on my NSX. I don't have to bother changing it out every year to pass emissions. I will probably go turbo in the future. So not having to deal with emissions certainly helps.
For those of you who want to scold me that I'm polluting the Earth. I don't care. Go hug a tree.
So what cars are qualified as "collector cars"? Well according to Grundy, they will consider just about anything.
No Model or Year Limitations
Whether you drive a 1910 Ford or a 2010 Ferrari, in most states we will consider you for our collector vehicle coverage. As long as your vehicle holds collector status and is used for pleasure and hobby use, you may qualify.
They do require you to have a 2nd daily driver, have an enclosed garage for your collector car, etc. I wouldn't doubt if they also look at stuff like your driving record, credit score, etc.
My premium on the NSX is only $450/yr, thats only $38/mth. I was paying 3 times more than this with State Farm. Agreed to value, no deductible, no mileage restrictions, collision & liability, free towing up $250 each incident, etc.
