Re: GMAC can BITE ME!!

Jaraxle, A GREMLIN in your driveway?

With the long "pony car" hood, those things look like someone took a chainsaw to lop off the back half. (My boss had a purple one back in '74-'75)

I don't know about the Gremlin, but a Vega's got to be worth something 'cause I don't think any of them are left.

If you're referring to the one Hot Rod featured, PURPLE X (her plate) ran again this year. The car was built by a high school girl & her father. There were 3 Pacers in 2007...that one, an orange one with a Mopar 440 in it (built for $2000!), and a red, white, and blue one with an AMC 390 and a 5-speed.

Mty Gremlin (AMC's smallest, lightest RWD car) has a blown (6-71 Roots) 401 and a T-10 4-speed. (Liz's GN is still faster. )

Re: GMAC can BITE ME!!

yes, they have given me crap, too.

The first six month policy was around $30 per month for liability. I missed the last two payments (just forgot completely- the bus hasn't moved from the yard) and they cancelled. I called them to see if they would issue another policy. they did, after I paid the missed payments. $97 per month was the best they could do this time, only to offer the explanation that this was they cheapest, basic coverage available.

I took it because I wanted to get the registration renewed, but will soon look for another company and ditch these assholes.
I even requsted that they automaticlly deduct the payments from my account since I am away for work for long periods of time and sometimes don't get my mail in a timely manner and often forget various payments. They couldn't do that because I was out of checks and they needed a voided check. I couldn't get more because I was on the road. WTF? they can deduct payments on a month by month basis on the phone with your bank info but cant do auto deduct?---- biggest bunch of crap for trying to give a company money to insure a bus that DOES NOT MOVE FROM THE YARD.

And $97 bucks a month?? I have a spotless driving record, many, many hours of defensive driving and six years safe truck driving experience. And I DON'T DRIVE THE BUS.

I think they are just being assholes to be assholes.

Re: GMAC can BITE ME!!

Yeah, I know it sounds strange to insure a vehicle I don't drive, but I want to keep registration up to date to avoid possible future hassles. (requires insurance for that month) and I worry about not being able to get it insured in the future, when I am done with the conversion and ready to use the bus. For instance, they quit writing policies on conversions but allow existing ones to stand.

I know it probably won't happen, but it would be my luck. Plus, when it gets done I want to be able to cruise around that day.

i need to update my year old thread with new pics pretty soon.
