and , IIRC in Texas its 25 years...both for classic and Antique...My friends here in Texas, most of them register as "Antique"....inspection every 5 years...I did on my 60 Alfa Giulietta, as it had no wipers ...couldnt register as classic....otherwise I always do :"classic" on my Spider, as I did on my Triumphs, my Studebaker, my Firebird....every year inspection, but its $14.50......with antique you get a rear plate only, can be Year Of Maunufacture YOM plate or Texas Historic/Antique plate...w Classic you need both front and rear, I only use rear (keep front plate in Trunk ..."as I had it on , bot "forgot" to re install after towing once)...nobody has stopped me for it...but w classic you can drive as much as you want, with "antique" , youre only SUPPOSED to drive to and from mechanic, to/from shows/meets and parades.....but many say youre on your way to a parade or meet all the time....so....
I think Im "more" legal with classic and forgetting front plate...lol
as for insurance I have Grundy, bought thru my regular insurance agent...IIRC its $230/year, full coverage....valued at $15k agreed value...I park in my locked garage, told them I drive 4,000 mi/year...not supposed to drive to work or grocery store...but sometimes I go on my "off day" to the office = not in "daily traffic"...and have stopped at grocery store (if youre on a cruise or such, you will often need to stop at a grocery store!)
1974 Spider (Dellorto carburated)
recent previously: 58 Giulietta, 69 Firebird 400 convertible, 71 TR6, 68 GT6
