I don't think this is posted up here yet but you never can trust the search engine (though I did try google too). Haven't had an opportunity to get through it yet as work consumed my lunch hour today.  Undecided

I will say that I am disappointed that the Green 68 that they show has the Bumble Bee stripe on incorrectly.  Tongue slap

The guide linked mentions the 69 500 but when you insure per their menu they don't have that model option.

I guess not that it matters since you are insuring stated value. Its clear that they are more an insurance company than they are "car guys", but when all is said in done I want them to be knowledgable insurers more than I want them to be car nuts anyways.

When I had my former 69 Charger 500 insured with Hagerty, they knew exactly what it was.  They called me and told me that I had the car under insured and that I needed to put more coverage on it.

Well, THAT guy ranted against the use of the word MOTOR to describe an engine. Where then would one use "Motor oil"  ?

These things are kind of fun but for many of us, I doubt that they tell anything that we don't already know.
I still like to read that stuff though.

That was a fun read, thanks Bakerhillpins. All that and the only picture of a 1970 model was the interior. I did not know that on an R/T SE, the interior door Charger script/badge on the wood grain panel was an option slap that my '70 SE has. rofl

Origin of engine
1250–1300; Middle English engin < Anglo-French, Old French < Latin ingenium nature, innate quality, especially mental power, hence a clever invention, equivalent to in- in-2 + -genium, equivalent to gen- begetting (see kin) + -ium -ium
noun
1.   a machine for converting thermal energy into mechanical energy or power to produce force and motion.

Origin of motor
1580–90; < Latin mōtor mover, equivalent to mō- (variant stem of movēre to move) + -tor -tor
noun
1.   a comparatively small and powerful engine, especially an internal-combustion engine in an automobile, motorboat, or the like.


Looks like a "motor" is an HP small block.  Grin

My concern historically with Hagerty is the limited number of sales that they would include in their valuations, some models seemed to be skewed or somewhat misrepresented. Not sure where they are getting their data. Fro example, Barrett Jackson auctions are not the really world for 90% of our cars.

put a solid one on the left side its torqs first and keep the rubber one on the right side  , works great and doesnt break them anymore  .

That seems to be not exactly an uncommon mistake doesn't it?
