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
hazard a
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.
