Re: Requesting Guidance from a Car Insurance agent

I am insured with Progressive now. A few years ago, 1995 I believe, I got a
quote from Geico on a "previous salvage" Saab 900 that I had. Maybe they have
changed their tune since then. With Progressive, I followed the "Don't ask,
don't tell" theory. Not because I was being crafty, but honestly, it did not
occur to me to mention salvage.
