You are FAR better off talking to insurance companies about this. Get out a phone book, and start dialing.

Last I heard there were a total of 178 legal Skylines running around the entire US. As for members of AF, I know ONE person that owns and drives one in the US. I'm not going to say who he is, I'll let that be up to him if he want's to help out or not.

So, you're far better off calling insurance companies directly as opposed to asking around here.

Where did you hear that? Most likely there are less than 100 legal Skylines. Illegal numbers are rising but no more legals if things continue as they are. I don't think Motorex has legalized any for quite some time now.

I used state farm, they had to see all the paperwork, and type up a special plane, but it was only like $20 more a month than my 330ci. I think it is roughly $940 every 6 months, but it is hard to tell as I currently have 3 cars insured with them, and I pay them all at the same time, I have also had 2 speeding tickets this year, so that affects the amount as well.

Gordan how old are you? I'8 but will be 19 by the time I can get a Skyline, I use state farm and have 3 other cars insured, given mine should differ but I just want to know, I don't have anything negative on my record. I talked to them once before briefly and I got the :wtf: look she didn't have any clue what a skyline was...

I am 24,

My state farm office didnt know what it was at first, but once I brought the paperwork in, they were able to write up a plan.

BTW what year is your Skyline?

CrashGordon

my skyline is a 1995 non v-spec. It is pretty much all stock too.

Cool I figured it was an R32, atleast I have a better idea of what I'll pay, the one I'm looking at is a 98.

CrashGordon

where are you getting a 1998 from? Oh well, you might save a little as the 96 and up skylines had dual airbags.

CrashGordon

oh, if you ever decide to get rid of the stock 98 steering wheel, I will buy it from you. I think those look alot better than the standard 95 wheel. It fits the car a little more, mine looks like it came from an altima.

When I talked to progressive about insuring a "90 GTR R32, they told me the closest comparable car was a '90 300ZX 2+2 and would use rates for that car. So for me it would end up $150 a month, which is actually lessthan what I pay for my Focus right now...

make sure you insure it for a declared value. If you dont, when you wreck they will only pay you the value of the 300zx (wich isnt much)

I got my insurance through Progressive for the value of the car. Paid only 340 and some changes for 6 months. But then i am 38 and have a clean driving records. My Ferrari was only 750 for every 6 months. Make sure you tell them it is for pleasure and have high deductables.

only 340...thats an ass ramming compared to what you can insure other cars under. my friends STi is costing him $300 a month, and its got 25 horses on the skyline, as well as an even 50-50 torque distribution. its not so much the sports part that rapes you for insurance, but the exotic label.

Yes. Also the police will most likely stop a Mustang over a WRX.

Because the cops know they can catch a mustang.

cops know they can catch skylines too. those crown vic's are supercharged. they have loads of power because they need to be able to catch cars with v8's and ish like that.

Umm, not unless your local police had aftermarket superchargers installed on their cars. The Crown Vic Interceptors barely have more power than the ones you can pick up at the dealer. They do, however, have heavy duty suspension, electronics, and tougher interior(ex: vinyl seats).

The police-spec Caprices were basically the same as the Impala SS you could get, though they likely had the tougher components as well.

Don't know if you read the part...Thats 340 for 6 months (not monthly).....

how the fuck do you get insurance for a god damn insurance for 340 dollars for 6 months. BULLSHIT!

and vquick.....all the cops around my area have supercharged v6's. its amazing....ive seen them pull on mustang mach 1's like it was a cavalier. as well as some f-body formulas.

Well, the Crown Vic isn't available with a V6. The current Chevy Impala is, however, from the factory. The police units probably use the Impala SS engine(supercharged 3.8L V6 with 240hp), with police-spec suspension, electronics and interior.

City cops here have normal Vics, County has Superchared, and the GSP has Uber-Charged. I aswell as my friend have outrun/manovered the City and County, but niether of us will mess with the GSP.
