If you’ve got £40,000+ available to spend on a two seater, then you’re really spoiled for choice. You could go for a Porsche Cayman, a new Audi TT, an Alfa Romeo Brera or even a Lotus Europa.
Now that’s a lot of money for a van which you can pick up for a pittance… (There has even been some doubt cast on the provenance of the car, which makes the astronomical price even more amazing)
For all that their detractors may mock the Reliant Three Wheelers, they are a cheap and reliable way of getting about, and you can drive them on a motorcycle license. What’s more, their fans are a dedicated bunch and here at Adrian Flux, we can reward them with a range of specially tailored insurance policies which will suit them down to the ground. In the immortal words of Del Boy, our policies are the creme de la menthe.
After all, we have specialist classic car policies and special cult car policies, or for those who’ve spent a lot of time and effort making their 3-wheeler look a million dollars (or £40k) perhaps a show car policy would be better. Agreed value is an option either way. And we can even offer cover to Reliant-based trikes.
If you need insurance for your three-wheeler, don’t be a plonker. Call Adrian Flux today, for free, on 08000 83 88 33.
You know it makes sense.
Honda are well known for spending millions on their breathtaking commercials. One of their most impressive recently has been the “Honda Civic Choir” where a classical choir replicate the sounds of the latest Civic. [If you haven't seen it, watch it here]
Well inevitably someone on Youtube decided to spoof it.
But, for a change, they did it really quite well. Enjoy.
What’s the shortest runway in the world? An aircraft carrier maybe?
The shortest runway in the world is the one on the top of this motorhome!
Here at Adrian Flux we can cover all kinds of motorhomes, from the humble VW Camper or Ford Transit conversion, right the way through to the highest spec US RV and Winnebago type motorhomes, and all at fantastic rates. Get your motorhome insurance here, or call free on 08000 83 88 33, but remember that deliberately landing an aeroplane on your roof may invalidate your cover!
When eBay seller and Westfield Kit Car enthusiast russf123 put his spare gearbox onto eBay, he took great care in taking clear photographs of the Ford type 9 ‘box from every angle.
Perhaps he should have taken a bit more care to tidy his garage first, though, as an interesting item lurks in the background of one of the shots…
Given that many of our customers are Kit Car enthusiasts themselves, perhaps there is someone reading this post who might want the gearbox for their own project. If so you’ve got until Saturday to put in a bid.
And don’t forget to call us on 08000 83 88 33 for free build up cover while you’re putting your car together as well as cheap, high quality kit car insurance for when you get it onto the road.
Then don’t do this!
And don’t be tempted to save money on a carwash either…
After the sweeping powers they got last year, the police are to get yet more powers to seize uninsured vehicles. Under the new system, they won’t even have to catch someone driving the uninsured car, and will be able to grab the car from a private driveway. What’s more, if you don’t either renew your insurance, or else complete a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) you’ll be liable for an automatic fine of £100.
If this seems like overkill, consider this.
Approximately 1 car in every 20 on the roads does not have valid insurance.
The drivers of these uninsured cars caused 36,000 crashes last year, resulting in 27,000 injuries and, sadly, 180 people lost their lives at the hands of an uninsured driver. In a third of these crashes, the uninsured driver fled the scene, knowing that it would be virtually impossible to be traced.
All of this costs money, £500 million last year, or £30 on everybody’s premium.
Uninsured drivers are ten times more likely than average to be drink drivers, six times more likely to be driving a mechanically unsafe car and three times more likely to have a Careless Driving rap.
Whilst we can’t do anything about cars which are unsound, drivers with a less than perfect history can get insurance for much less than they might think. We have special schemes available for drivers with a chequered history, and drink driving and careless or dangerous driving convictions need not mean extortionate premiums.
For everyone else, the new rules will mean that you will have to keep on top of your car’s insurance status, and make sure that you complete a SORN if you’re keeping the car off the road. You should also consider laid up cover to make sure your car is protected whilst you are working on it.
But the extra burden of red tape may well be worth it to rid the roads of the uninsured menace.
