Episode 22 – After two and half years of hard work, American Modern’s Rick Drewry and Classic Auto’s Drew Yagodnik introduce our shining white and red 1965 Chevy C10 Truck to employees and fans of American Modern Insurance, our policy underwriter and great partner on Project C10. “The fact they did a restomod on a truck is cool,” one fan tells us, “because trucks are like puppies. They’re just so friendly and fun.” Without further ado, meet the Chevy C10 Restomod, star of Project C10, powered by American Modern.
Drew Yagodnik: We get a lot of questions about how many miles a year can I drive the car? Now with our main carrier, American Modern, we have different rate tiers as far as mileage is concerned. We have 1,000 miles per year, a 3,000-mile plan and a 6,000-mile plan. That really gives you the ability to tailor the policy to your driving habits. If you have more of the garage queen or you’re just, life is busy, you don’t have as much time to enjoy that car, the 1,000-mile plan is perfect. But I would say more times than not, most clients want to go on the 3,000-mile plan. It gives them a lot of flexibility to do a lot of shows or local cruise-ins or things along those line. The 6,000-mile plan – typically we see people who are more in those warmer climate states that get more than three to four good months of driving. West coast, Southern states, maybe Florida, Texas, those clients might take a higher mileage plan. But don’t be surprised, too. We have a lot of clients in those states that go on the 1,000 mile plan. They may have five collector cars and it makes sense to put all the cars on a 1,000 miles because you can only drive the car so much.
Episode 21 – Classic Auto’s Drew Yagodnik and Project C10’s Rick Drewry are on location around Indianapolis, Indiana with noted photographer Anthony Ross Tyler, who’s snapping outrageous pictures of our good-looking 1965 Chevy C10 restomod. Even though Mother Nature decides to rain on us, Ross uses his brilliant technique to tell the story of this 54-year-old truck with a renewed lease on life surrounded by classic, iconic imagery.
Indy WOW 2019 – Classic Auto’s Drew Yagodnik gets the phenomenal backstory from Steve Moore of The Car Vault on a masterful restoration of a 1976 BMW 2002. The car’s unusual green paint job gets a ton of attention at car shows, although it’s the custom touch that really wows enthusiasts. An amalgam of all three generations of the BMW 2002, it has an original BMW 1600 engine under the hood and is set to have ultra-modern options like a keyless ignition system and a touchpad, push-button screen in the dash.
Artomobilia’s John Pitz talks with Jeff Utzinger, sudden cardiac arrest survivor and supporter of Bolt From the Heart, a nonprofit dedicated to equipping first responders with AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators), used to restart the heart in the event of sudden cardiac arrest. Plus, the two discuss Jeff’s 1962 Corvette. Shot at Fuelicious 2018.
Video Transcript – Drew Yagodnik: Here are some things to think about when you’re applying for collector car insurance and what you’re going to need. Our process, we’ve got an application, we’re going to need that signed by you. The typical stuff: VIN number, your driver’s license number, maybe the current odometer reading from the car or cars, photos of the vehicle. And very simple, just one good color photo typically is enough for us. In some cases, if you have a restomod or a street rod, we might ask for some photos; maybe if you have a custom interior or motor that we’d like to see. From there we’ll verify your primary auto insurance. So just a copy of your insurance policy for your primary drivers. Typically we can turn these policies around in as little as a business day. Some things might take a little bit longer if we need to get more information from you.
