I'm usually here to bash rotten commercials, but this is different.
This ones short and sweet.  Produced and filmed professionally.
of coarse, the good ones will disappear and the junk ads play forever.
There's a sucker born every minute.

Pretty good. But I'm partial to Mustangs. My first car was a 68 fastback, 302, 4-barrel.

In fact, an old friend from back then just sent me for my birthday, similar to the one in the commercial) a 1/32 replica of a 67 (which looks just like the 68 except for some minor details).

My sister's first car was a '65 Mustang Coupe almost exactly like this one....



Same color, too.

But it wasn't all shiny and pristine looking though.

The paint was kind of dull.

But still.... it was a '65 Mustang.

She only had it for about a year then traded it in on a damned cheap piece of crap Chevy Vega that blew a head gasket.

I wish I could have talked her into selling it to me, but since I had no money and didn't even have a driver's licence because I was only about 14, there wouldn't have been much of a way to swing it.

I really like this commercial.

I think I saw this commercial in February, so I think it has staying power.

Silver blue. Nice. Yeah, for some reason, the metallics back then didn't hold up.

I used to like to paint my car models metalflake. You don't see custom metalflake paintjobs (on real cars) much these days. It'll probably come back.

Oh, and the whitewalls! They only work on classic/vintage cars.

The commercial isn't bad but what did Am Fam do to help you actually acquire the car.

Nuttin' honey!

There's a lot of older classics for sale for very reasonable prices. If it's not a very low miles all original car or a body off restoration, the insurance companies won't give you squat.

There are companies that specialize in classics...The rates might be higher but they come closer to the full replacement value.

Collector and classic car insurance


Our deep knowledge of cars and their owners lets us offer you better classic car insurance coverage for less.
