    Resurrection...

    Took it out for its first drive Friday and all went well. Everything works - tach, gages, speedo, windows - except for the aftermarket radio. Still waiting for the new custom made air cleaner assembly, after which I can finish the engine cover and louver modifications. Also after initialing refusing to re-issue the BLWNAWY plates, DOL has now reversed and said they will. A couple more weeks and she will be finished.

    One of its first outings will be to take it around to show to the various shops who helped with its repair - fiberglass shop, glass shop, upholstery shop, 2 machine shops, etc. I will be taking it through Tacoma, to Edgewood, to show it to the guy who did the polishing on the supercharger. Still sorting out insurance options - whether to go with Grundy like on my '57 Dodge, or Safeco like my daily drivers. Grundy is slightly cheaper but has use restrictions. Thanks to my clean record, advanced age, multi-car discount (6 vehicles), and rural location the rates are quite reasonable - under $255/yr for full coverage. Got a quote for $160 from Classic Collectors, but need to research them some more before making the switch.

    Both the Grundy ($215) and Classic Collectors ($160) quotes were for the agreed value of $25k. I may raise that before actually pulling the trigger. Not sure about Safeco ($255) - think it was just for standard full coverage but have my agent checking it out. My very rural location, age (67), high credit rating, multi-car discount, and perfect driving record (no speeding tickets EVER) make for the lowest rates. Most folks will pay significantly higher. I'm leaning toward Safeco because the collector policies have use restrictions - to shows and occasional pleasure use. A trip down the coast, for example, does NOT qualify. I can live with that on my Dodge, but I'd like to be able to drive the DeLorean more often than that.
