Ok here is the story - I currently have my trusty mk2 golf gti which I am using as my daily but I have been given back my old 1990 audi 80 td from a friend who was using it for the last couple of years so the plan is/was to start using the audi as my winter "hack" and keep the golf off the road during the winter.
Unfortunately it has hit a snag via insurance - I am insured on the golf with the AA so thought i would see what they could do for me with an additional policy for the audi - there were a few problems which surfaced when I called them...
1. they only do fully comprehensive policies - i only really need TPFT as the car is not really worth much.
2. most of the insurance companies they deal with point blank refused to cover it (age of car).
3.for some reason even though i have about 19 years NCB with them they said they couldn't use this with the other policy hence I would have zero NCB.
So the quote the gave me....£1592!
Bearing in mind i'm a 45 year old married home owner with a clean licence i was more than a little shocked with this - even the guy on the phone was surprised - even to the point of recommending i try some on line go compare type sites!
Anyway what do some of you guys do with your cars? classic policy? cheapest one on gocompare?
And just because a thread is nothing without pics here's the cars in question.
