I have never had a problem getting liability insurance for my EVs and since they are typically older cars, all I want is liability. I am with Farmers and I like their local agent.

I'm still with State Farm, and they still insure my 1980 Renault LeCar conversion. They have inspected it, and know it is heavily modified (i.e. nothing at all is left of the original drive train). Prior to that, they also insured my ComutaVan, which was about as far from a normal vehicle as you can get. It looked like something someone built in their garage! In each case, they did inspect the vehicle to make a decision. I don't know if it's a matter of finding a cooperative agent, or whether the insurance company itself is the roadblock. My guess is that it's easy to say "no", regardless of the facts of the matter. So you may have to shop around, and "talk up" the agent a bit. -- I view this year's failure as next year's opportunity. Failures are not something to be avoided. You want them to happen as quickly as you can, so you can make progress rapidly. -- Gordon Moore -- Lee Hart's EV projects are at http://www.sunrise-ev.com/LeesEVs.htm _______________________________________________ UNSUBSCRIBE: http://www.evdl.org/help/index.html#usub http://lists.evdl.org/listinfo.cgi/ev-evdl.org For EV drag racing discussion, please use NEDRA (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NEDRA) _______________________________________________ UNSUBSCRIBE: http://www.evdl.org/help/index.html#usub http://lists.evdl.org/listinfo.cgi/ev-evdl.org For EV drag racing discussion, please use NEDRA (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NEDRA)
