Interesting story, and #Hagerty will not insure a Meyers Manx #DuneBuggy really! My insurance has gone up from ~200.00 bucks a year (when #INTAC dumped me after requesting an appraisal… NICE; I’ll never do business with them again) to ~2400.00; Nordique is the only insurance company in Ontario, Canada.
Well, I guess it’s not their fault, but, if they are the only company to insure my classic authenticated Manx, then, they have all our nutz in a vise, dictating the price. I’m not ready to put it up on the #Barrett-Jackson auctioning block yet, but, when retired it may not be an option at $2400.00 bucks a year!
This my rant for the day #F^ck_2020 and come on 2021, I never looked forward to a new year, until, this year.
Okay, I think everyone can agree 2020 sucked big time and we all will be happy to see it go! But, let’s focus on the positive side of the Holiday Season. I think that everyone, can step back this year, from the usual holiday craziness and really enjoy this holiday season of 2020. Think about not having to deal with packed parking lots, retail stores, X-mas Rage from people that are stressed out, from the anxiety of the season, travelling through inclement weather conditions. The list goes on, trying to jamm’in as much as possible, spreading yourself so thin, there is no time to enjoy the holidays.
Okay, some may enjoy the above, but I do not, now for my positive spin… agree or disagree
STOP! Take a look around and I think everyone, can identify the most important people, person or interest you enjoy, right at your finger tips. (A loved one, pet, game, book, whatever it may be) Think about how the season was celebrated 100 years ago, taking away all of the modern distractions. Simple as, taking a walk Christmas Eve in the park with the one you cherish, person, pet whatever… winter or warmer activities, indoor or out, be creative and make it your own. I’m not saying there will be won’t be family members, impacted by the lockdown. Since my dad has passed, my mom will be on her own, and we will do our best to include her, safely. I’m suggesting we step back, go back to some of the basics and find good in each of our own surroundings. Pick up the phone and reach out to the ones you can’t visit, don’t simply post your thoughts on social media, thinking that everyone will see your wishes.
So posting on my blog is really a contradiction, but, this message is intended for our extended family.
#BadManxBuggy wants to share the following classic to our extended Dune Buggy, Volkswagen family, and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Well 2020 is shaping up to be the worst year on record. If #COVID19 wasn’t enough #INTAC insurance has sent me a “Notice to Insured of Non=Renewal” !
Nice, #WTF… I have been with them for as long as I can remember… years, and I have been driving this Meyers Manx Dune Buggy for 46 years. First, INTAC wants an appraisal and current evaluation, before they renewal date. This is the second appraisal I provided, an update sounds like a good idea. From the evaluation package they see it is a Dune Buggy and drop me for “Rule #15 = custom kit cars, replica, Dune buggies, hot rods”
Okay, so my broker looks at other alternatives, well, there are no other alternatives, so far. Turns out dune buggies are black listed or the Insurance companies have a hate on, for this fun car. Hagerty Classic Insurance covers a wide range of classic to race cars, but, Dune Buggies… nope!
So I’m currently on the hunt for an insurance company that will cover my authenticated Meyers Manx Dune Buggy. If anyone has a lead on an insurance company, in Canada 🇨🇦 Ontario, please drop me a line, so we can continue to enjoy our #BadManxBuggy
