I’ve known about this for a while.  What started as a totaled Camaro ended up as a training tool to help State Farm’s classic car underwriters better understand the real (not owner perceived) value of their car.

Our Split Camaro

It makes sense that your newly purchased, run-of-the-mill Bizzarrini 5000 GT might come with tons of paperwork, but your insurance carrier WILL want to see more than just a title when you add it to your collection. Same goes for the Camaro.

So when you hear me bitch about (uh,… request) an appraisal on your Daytona, Dino, Mangusta or Miura, it just may end up helping you just as much as it helps me.

Read the article at Edmunds below and get a better understanding of how all restorations are not created equal.


See you on down the road,
