Re: Chandlers skoolie

Assigned risk is both for drivers with bad records as well as those with no records. When I moved from one state to another, I got put into assigned risk because there was (at the time) no interstate access to my existing record. Usually, the state sets the assigned risk rates, and each insurer must take 1 risk assignment for every so many standard policies it writes.

$250 per year does not sound outrageous for the minimum necessary liability needed to get plates in your state. I would look at the limits before taking off cross-country, to be sure you have more than the minimum for the states you pass through. The last time I checked (decades ago), the bare minimums varied wildly from state to state.

Re: Chandlers skoolie

Insuring me and my old 93' car I pay $276 a year. Of course, I'm old. I've a perfect driving record since 18. I've no credit (but then, I never check so it might be stolen by now) because I don't believe in using credit (cards, loans).

If GMAC or anyone else tries to suck me for $1200 a year when I get the bus I'll flip my lid and do something unlady like.

For a guy younger than me and I'm young, that's a pretty good paint job. You've given me some confidence with my upcoming painting project.

Wow that paint job looks great. Nice job! Are you planning on doing rubrails a different color for accent, or leaving it all green?

Re: Chandlers skoolie

thats regular old rustolem i got at lowes, its Hunter Green. I applied it with a 15$ harbor freight spray gun and thinned it with acetone. the prep work was the real bitch, it took about 10 hours total to sand and tape it all. I think I might paint the rub rails black to match the bumpers and wheels.
