    Welcome! I'm sure you'll fit in around here.

    Funny you say that, ive been wondering where the wheeler dealer guys got ahold of that 4 barrel carb manifold for the alpine they did, until then, i havent had much issue with the kjet other than the slightly anoying hot start issue.

    Always liked the Bertone bodied Volvos - the 780 is on my 'like to own one' list. Nice to see people preserving them as opposed to junking them and/or parting them out.

    Many might not realize it, but 262C's (6,622 over three MYs) are actually rarer than our DeLoreans (roughly 9,200 over three MYs)

    Noticing that yours has quad round headlights - is that OEM or an after-market modification?

    Perhaps you should start a thread about your 262C in the open section with some more photos and a little background

    They had to be done by a PO at some point long ago, all bertones came with quad squares. And it seems i will have to considering this is a rarity.

All I'm finding is collector insurance with completely unacceptable mileage and usage restrictions. Even my regular insurance, State Farm (who I haven't been thrilled with), won't insure it as a regular car if I want them to. I'm willing to pay for coverage I want... I'm not finding anyone to take my money.
    Same, same. I don't want to fudge mileage reports. I don't mind paying more, I just want to honestly have my miles fully covered. I didn't go with Hagerty because they wanted me to commit to <3500 miles a year. In reality, I find I'm driving a little less than that but I don't want to pay insurance premiums to then have the carrier deny a claim because I drove 3501 miles. I'd like stated coverage, 5000 miles a year, no pleasure drive restrictions (car show only, etc).
