    I'm tyring to convince my dad to let me get this 87 K5, so I'm going to call the insurance company to get the price difference from a 96Z28. The thing is, the insurance company needs a VIN number, so if someone w/ an 87 4x4 could give me theirs that would be great. Am I correct in suspecting that the insurance will significantly lower than on my current car?? Thanks in advance.

    If you canhave both, definitely talk to the insurance company about making one a "recreational vehicle". My K5 is insured as one (liability only) but it is the EXACT same price to insure two vehicles as it is one under my policy, since they have a two vehicle discount.

    Who's your ins co.?? I call my agent like twice a month to ask how much more another vehicle is, or a change in policy, and they only need year/make/model.
    An older K5 over a newer sporty car will probably be less, it was a huge difference for me when I went from Camaro to K5. If you get liability only, that is. Full or collision coverage may kill you if they consider K5 body's hard to fix...

    The company is USAA, but I was told I have to have a VIN number, so whatever. But I guess it would only make sense that an older truck would be cheaper simply because it's cheaper to fix. If I can't get a VIN number, I'll call and see if they can do anything for me. Thanks.
