With the Camaro drawing ever nearer (slowly as it may seem) the question of insurance is crossing my mind. I've never insured my own car before so this is going out to you more experienced guys out there. I'm wondering what y'all would suggest as a comparable car to the V6 Camaro so that I could start sniffing around to see how much this might cost to insure. I was thinking the V6 Mustang but I don't know enough about what goes into insurance rates to know if that's a better option than say the G6 or G8. I appreciate your input.

I'd say the challenger would be a good start. Being a young guy myself I am a little worried about insurance with this car. I am hopeing the V6 will be reasonable but who knows. I think the v6 camaro needs good insurance rates to sell well. I am going to start looking at rates of the challenger soon. I just hope it isn't going to be rape like every other car I have had my hart set on.

Yeah, insurance companies and the general public may not have many Challenger numbers available, but I'm sure you could check for Mustang prices pretty easily. They SHOULD be comparable, V6 to V6 (even though the hp numbers aren't). :D

Haha. Slug, that's what I do! :lol: My grandmother lets me put my vehicles unnder her policy for like, 80$ a month! We priced out a C5 Corvette for me, under her insurance, and the total for a year was like, 400$. :p

Insurance company's dont like young drivers with high HP.. the laws of physics (and reality) say you will cost them more money than the avg driver..

I would ask for quotes on the V8 mustang. better to error on the high side - but I bet they are very near the same.

progressive
allstate
state farm

and you can try geiko - they might not be so good. but it doesnt hurt to ask for a quote - good luck!

and $1600/6? you better call the police.. you're getting robbed :rotflmao:

Dude, you're so getting screwed by your mom's plan. Does she have coverage for birds crapping on your car too.

As for the stick dilema, I'm in the same situation, thankfully my girlfriend just got a Celica I've been practicing on. The problem is that all those good beaters that have the standard transmissions are now the cars of choice for commuters because of the price of gas. My cousin just got 5K for his 1996 Civic, only had aftermarket wheels and radio, base version nothing special.

That's a good thing for me! Keeps up the value of my 4-banger!
