Insurance for my '81 240D Life is Good

Recently, because my truck died, I've used my '81 240D as my daily driver (with antique auto plates, "Yes officer, I am on my way to a parade, thank you"). I've owned it for 5 yrs and it now has 115K on it and is a joy to drive the 4 speed. I just drove it up from FL 04/2015 and used 2 gal of oil- needs a tune up.

The benefits of using the Benz are:
1) Low cost Registration- $100 per year
2) Low cost comprehensive auto insurance $97 per year with replacement value stated at $7500 thru Condon Skelly- crazy
3) no state vehicle inspection
4) 29 MPG
5) Many many warm smiles from passing motorists- usually 30 something females. Life is good

Sounds great!

As long as your insurance allows that kind of mileage.
