Subject: Re: High Insurance On a Saab Convertible: Can anyone recommend an insurer?

whats real funny is I pay about $900 a year for a 1999 9-5 SE V6 (MSRP $39k)with full coverage in Pennsylvania. I am 33 yrs old, male, no tickets or accidents (though my wife did have one in our 900s this year). Your car is 10 years older and $30k cheaper and yet you pay more move to a cheaper state. If I lived in NJ like I used to, this car would prob cost me $2,000 a year to insure.
