This past weekend I rescued this Speedster from Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii. The people who previously owned it are moving because of the volcanic activity we have been having lately in the Puna district. Its funny because this car looks sort of like my old IM Convertible D, similar color and all! I just got her cleaned and mechanically sorted out, just have to change out those 8 spoke Empi wheels!
As I mentioned, there is lava activity in an isolated area on our island. Because of this I have been having a hard time acquiring "stated value" classic car insurance. I have policies for my other cars with both Grundy & Hagerty but now both companies have a moratorium on writing new policies. I even checked with the local State Farm agent and he said the same thing. I could go with my regular auto insurance (Farmers) but will not be covered for "stated value." If any of you have some ideas of companies that may offer coverage in the islands, please let me know. BTW, I live in Hilo which is over 20 miles form the lava activity and am in no danger...
Aloha & Mahalo, Donn
