Jeeze, Ingo, why do you have full coverage on an 11-year-old car that AAA
will total if damage exceeds about between three and four times your annual
premium $1700?  They'll give you $6-7K at best, I'd bet.  I have the
200q20v covered for PL/PD by Farm Bureau in Michigan for about $80 every
six months.  I think the state license plate (based on new-car price) costs
more each year.  Of course, I'm married and about 25 years older.....
