I didn't have collision on my '86. Saved some money. Don't know
I paid half. Car was worth about $2000 or less, if I had to
guess (I could be way off). (don't know, since insurance never
to bother to make an offer, of course)
I smacked someone when I wasn't paying attention (or, rather,
myself to get smacked). Lost my ride.
I wish I would have had collision coverage. It would have made
aftermatch easier to deal with.
I would only recommend against collision coverage for a lower
car, if you actually are going to have money put away for that
ride you're going to have to get. Or, at least a downpayment.
