Win A Hemi - 2009 Dodge Viper SRT 10

I just got a letter for next year's Hemi Raffle. Brevard's Can't Remember Shit Foundation, AKA, Brevard Alzheimer's Foundation, is steering away from beautiful classic mopars up for grabs to a modern muscle mopar, a 2009 Viper Yellow SRT 10 convertible.

A nice ride for some lucky person! Features the 8.4L V10 SFI engine, 6 spd manual, preferred suede and leather trim seats in black, 18x10/19x13 forged aluminum 6 spoke wheels.

Tickets will be $25 each, 6 for $100 or 15 for $200. Like all their raffles before, they don't place a limit on how many tickets they'll sell.

Esurance Classic Auto Quote 1970 Dodge Hemi Convertible 426

Another company I personally use is Esurance for my automobile. Besides having a great logo/advertising campaign (Erin the special agent cartoon girl), they are a top notch car insurer with great rates.

I called Esurance the other day to see if they insure classic cars and sure enough, they have a department that does that - although it's more like an affiliate set up.
I checked to see what a quote would be for a 1970 Dodge Challenger Convertible with a 426 Hemi installed. Total restoration, show quality. Ok, so it's not the more desirable Plymouth Barricuda Hemi Convertible - a la, Nash Bridges ride - but it's still nothing to laugh at.

 The quote was about $425 for the year based on a $30,000 value with zero deductable for collision/comprehensive.  It specified that it's use is limited to sunday drives and car show type usages - pretty standard. I opted for the 3000 mile per year limit. However, the car pictured below is appraised at 3 times that, or $90,000.

Here's a pic of the Challenger:

You used to drool over them at car shows, but now you are a proud owner - or soon to be - of your very own dream car. For some it's American Muscle, for others it's that italian exotic.  No matter your taste, you want to protect your newfound toy.
Ever wondered who to use to insure your trailer queen or sunday ride or big boy toy?

Sure, there may be a few strings attached, like the amount of miles you're allowed to drive each year - under 5000, but then again, do you really want to drive that beautiful toy into the ground?
