 You're just a young pup, wait till you're 71 and closing in on 72. I'm starting to collect 'parts' as in a new hip, also shoulder surgery last year. But at least I'm on the right side of the "ash pile!!" and that's the main thing.

Just a little heads up - you are violating the terms of your policy. Hagerty doesn't insure cars for only-vehicle daily use. One has to have another vehicle registered and insured in your own name for a daily. If he wrecks the car and they start digging, you might be denied your claim.
