Automobiles have long been a passion for collectors and enthusiasts, as well as a valuable financial investment. Whether it’s a popular performance car, a culturally important vehicle, a high-end luxury marque, or a rare antique — collector cars have captured the imagination and emotions of aficionados for many generations.
If you currently own a collector car, or if you plan to purchase one in the future, there are special considerations to take in order to protect your investment.
