through American Collectors Insurance... with a value of $25,000 a  
modified 1990 Audi Coupe premium is $400 a year. I just did the  
little instant quote. That's for 2500 miles a year, i think it's 30%  
more for 5000 a year. I'd insure it as a show car. You probably  
wouldn't use it as a daily driver, but if you're not above VIN fraud,  
odometer fraud is a piss in the bucket.


Problem kinda solved.
