Impending financial doom is still imminent. Had a job interview Tuesday, one tomorrow and one next Tuesday. I'm hoping I'll get something. They're all good.
Due to problems with insurance (read: they fail at taking money from the account specially set up for this. They also fail at saving my rego number, and fail because they set up two policies which cancelled each other out) I am swapping insurance. I rang up Shannons the other day to get a quote for the 3 cars out of curiosity. The 3rd car is the MG, which would be under restoration/historic vehicle cover. Hey, I was bored and had an hour to fill.
Not only do I get much better benefits such as:
- Repairer of choice (Not just a list of places you can choose from)
- Unlimited mods (kind of important considering I've already exceeded the allowed 3)
- Separate payout for mods in case of write-off
- Hire car etc.
It would be $10 more per year to cover ALL THREE vehicles. One on comprehensive, one on 3rd party and one on restoration/historic vehicle.
So I'm going to hit the bank hard to release that money so I can swap to Shannons. I went through driving history with them, and they've bumped me up to rating 1 as well.
Tomorrow I swap. Seniorita's not being driven right now, so it's no biggy not to have full insurance for a few days, as she's well protected. Plus if anyone wanted to steal her currently, it's BYO milk crate as she has no seats. Can't outrun the cops after stealing a car if you can't see over the dash.
However, we're going down to Phillip Island this weekend for the Alfa/Mx5 NSW vs VIC challenge so insurance is a must for the getting there and home part.
I just wish I was driving on Sunday. I banned myself from any track events when I found out about the job doom, so I'm just going down to act out in an official way, and start getting trained in scrutineering.
Oh, and this will be there doing some testing. The E-Vade. Yes, it's as nasty as it looks:
