American Collectors Insurance National Collector Car Appreciation Day

Sunshine And Classic Cars – A Perfect Day

On Friday July 13th American Collectors celebrated National Collector Car Appreciation Day with a classic car show at our headquarters. With weather affecting previous years’ shows, it seemed Friday the 13th brought us good luck with plenty of sunshine and a fantastic showing.

Attendees were thrilled by both the diversity and quality of cars present.  From the Italian supercars; to the Brass Era; a Pre-War motorcycle and muscle cars; Fifties originals and Sixties wagons; this truly was a celebration of everything we love about collector cars. 

Other featured vehicles included a Humvee and a deuce-and-a-half Stewart & Stevenson LMTV from the National Guard, there to supportThe Road Home. Delighted kids could be found sitting in the military trucks as well as the driver’s seat of the show’s oldest participant, the sole surviving 1907 American Roadster Underslung.

Another bright spot was The Original Garden State Corvette Club’s display of more than a half-century lineup of Corvettes. Carz ’N Toyz lined up a dream garage with Lamborghini, Corvette, Lotus, and Ferrari supercars. A hit with the kids was a full Back to the Future replica DeLorean DMC-12, complete with Mr. Fusion and Save the Clock Tower flyers.

Our DJ John Reed spun great tunes all night, interspersed with American Collectors’ giveaways and trivia contests. Co-sponsor Hemmings Motor News was in on the scene, too, with t-shirts and large-scale models. There were even presentations from SEMA’s Congressional Affairs Manager Dan Sadowski and Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Raymond Martinez.

Our evening concluded with awards presented to some of our favorite cars. The winners were:

Allan Vogelson – 1959 Cadillac Coupe deVille: Founder’s Choice Award
Jim Carroll – 1983 “Back to the Future” DeLorean: Kids’ Choice Award
Brian Schuster – 1971 Datsun 240Z: Hemmings’ Choice Award
Frank Guinto – 1961 Chevy Corvette: Employees’ Choice Award

Collector Vehicle Insurance Program

Your car makes a statement. And it’s not “turn right at the next corner.” Sure it won’t prevent you from getting lost, but at least it will never get lost in today’s automotive sea of sameness. A car as unique as yours deserves insurance coverage that’s just as unique: American Collectors Insurance.

Last year, 99% of our customer feedback rated our claims process from very good to excellent. Here are some other reasons to choose American Collectors:

  • Pain-free application process. Answer some basic questions, provide payment and submit a single photo of your vehicle. That’s it. No appraisals, copies of other policies, notarized statements, or other hoops to jump through.
  • “Real Person” Guarantee. Say “hello” to a licensed representative during business hours — even Saturday. Say “goodbye” to confusing phone menus and unbearable waits.
  • Unmatched personal service. Our reps are friendly, prompt, knowledgeable, and honest. If you ever have a claim, we’ll make the process as smooth as possible.
  • Flexible service options. You can even manage your collector policy online quickly and easily — 24/7.
