They charge for it. I think you have to call it a show car.

I bought a Supercharged GTO at an auction once...brand new Maggie on it. Called the guy who owned it and he said his insurance company would not let him take it off. He ended up eating the mod. I've seen a lot of cars go thru auctions with no intakes on them, if it was my car I would have it towed back to my house so I could pull my mods off. Until the insurance pays you for it, it is still your vehicle. Better to ask for forgivness than beg for permission.

I had a 1978 z28 totaled. While it was in the insurance companies compound someone stole a bunch of stuff out of it. Rims, Carb, intake, stereo. You could tell that it was an inside job. I went and got estimates on replacements and they cut me a check for all of it.

This is a good question and I've thought about it as well. I think the best option would be to have the car towed to either your house or to a paint shop in your favor. That will give you the ability to pull some of the stuff off although there is a good chance you wouldn't get everything. Like someone mentioned, it's still your car until it's officially totaled and they write you or your bank a check.

If the part was damaged in the wreck....my guess is you would be SOL. I doubt they'll reimburse you for it. It would only make sense to me that they would want to charge you more per month if they were going to cover additional add-ons to the car.

Here's a good question. What if another driver is at fault and their insurance company is responsible for damages? I do not know whether your Insurance Policy/Coverage is invoked. It would seem, that the other drivers insurance should be responsible for all losses from the collision. However, I'm sure it's not that simple.

Actually, I think it is that simple....If you know for sure it's the other partie's fault and they are responsible, you can file a claim with your own insurance if it gets things moving quicker, then your insurance will get re-imbursed from the other one....

If it's a drawn out thing of who's at fault, get your car fixed with your own inurance, then they can figure out later who pays what...

....Or, you can just have the other party's insurance handle it and not file a claim with your insurance...

...Either way, you will want an adjuster from your insurance to look at the car and the figures for your own protection...All the agents, adjusters work together anyway, just to make it go smoother for you and them...At least, that's how it went for me...

usually you can get a "rider" policy. That covers mods.

If your vehicle is NOT a daily driver I woul;d switch over to a collector car insurance company. I had my 2001 Z28 unde Grundy Collector Car insurance for an agreed value of $35k that means if the car is totalled or stolen I get the full $35k. I was paying right at $435 a year no limitations on miles the only thing is you cannot use to to drive to and from work on a daily basis.
