State Farm is the best deal I've ever had on insurance.

2002 Ford F-350 Dually Diesel $1600 yr

Dumped that for a new Corvette - Vette is only $1200 yr. I almost fell over when I found out! A vette cheaper to insure than a dually?

I guess they finally figured out that Trucks can do a lot more damage than sports cars...whatever.

Whatever, You're still only covered until you need it.

2002 F-250 = 1000/yr

Folks, here's the scoop...insurance rates differ greatly from state to state/town to town so for someone in Florida to ask what someone in Alabama pays for any insurance....you can't get a accurate comparison.
What surprises me is that many of you deal direct with insurers instead of working with a local agent. It costs no more and sometimes much less for this valuable resource - the trick is finding the right one. Insurance costs in general are going up greatly due to lots of reasons, one major cause is the
stock market and it's lack of return. Insurance companies are in business to make money, bottom line and return a reasonable return to the stock holders.
They ask no more than you would if you owned a business. I am an independent insurance agent and no one hates these companies more than I
but I do understand where they are coming from, from a rate standpoint.

States are finally cracking down more on uninsured drivers, personally I think its a huge problem, as big or bigger than DUI. Atleast if a drunk person has insurance they pay for their damage.

I disagree. I have never dealt with an agent when it was time to make a claim. All an agent has done for me is fill out the application and made a commission off of me. The bottom line is what it costs me a year. I carry higher limits than most people and still pay less. Welcome to the board.
