If you are anything like we are here at the National Corvette Museum you can look at a mangled car and know that one day it was stunning, or one day it will become this gorgeous restomod. You have this vision of a heart pounding V8, ghosted stripes or flame job, plush interior, etc. Most non-car buffs look at that wrecked car as wasted space, but you and I are different! We have gasoline running through our veins!
You may be wondering what the difference is between a true restoration and a restomod. The answer is quite simple. A restoration is refurbishing the car to be mechanically and cosmetically the way it was when it was new. A restomod is taking a car and refurbishing it to appear stock or slightly modified with modern components to improve handling, drivability and performance.
The NCM’s Insurance Agency’s underwriter, American Modern Insurance Group, is up to their elbows in fun as they take on restoring a wrecked 1965 Chevelle Malibu SS and shape it into that heart pounding show winner! This restomod build will involve many employees from American Modern as well as some external agencies that want to have their hand in the rebuild. The NCM Agency will be taking part in several days of the restoration project, dubbed “The Build”. “The Build” will provide tuned in enthusiasts helpful tips, helpful training videos, and information tidbits to replay and use when restoring classics of their own – from beginning to end from American Modern’s own Sr. Collector Car Claim’s Specialist, Rick Drewry and his team of experts.
If you love cars, love restoring cars from wrecked/old to new, want to learn more about restoring or you’re just simply curious – join us in this amazing project by the people who know collector cars! Adam Boca, NCM Insurance Agent will be there for several days during the project’s adventurous journey to take part in the” down and dirty” fun. “We are thrilled to join American Modern’s experts in restoring this wrecked classic back to condition,” NCM Agent Adam Boca shares. “We hope our insurance customers and all enthusiasts will join in with us, ask questions, share thoughts and take part in the interactive fun. It is a great opportunity to get to know more about the folks who handle your claims, team members and have fun in the process.”
