I thought Hagerty dropped roadside assistance for policy holders' other vehicles several years ago. Do they again now?

Wow. That movie sure looks like a war zone. I guess I did sort of notice that the downtown area is divided into old and new.

I stayed in a hotel I suspect was right in the "new" part.

Rob, maybe I can go north and we can learn all about Astoria or someplace?

73 MGB-GT virtually stole this one. Someone up there likes me.

68 MGB-GT the daily mule. Solid as a rock, but rattles like a can full of them!

This car is now very nearly completely done. Sure to find something else, but not now.........

I have the Hagerty Platinum coverage and it does include towing your other cars.

Thanks, Steve, that explains it. I just have Plus, not Platinum.

Well, southern Oregon.

In reply to # 3906253 by 29desoto Only on this forum could a discussion about roadside service end up in a history lesson of a forgotten town in central Oregon.

Ain't life grand? And interesting also!

The first time I had to use Hagerty was when the clutch went kaput in my driveway. I called Hagerty and they said some one would be on the way to tow it to my mechanic.

About an hour later I called back and they said they were on it. An hour later still no tow truck. Finally, the tow truck arrived. The driver told me that Hagerty offered him $50 to pick me up. He said no.

Then they bartered and he finally got in the truck for $100. I'm no fan of AAA, but when you call they come.

The Hagerty system seems a little crazy.

The magazine is nice, though.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. AAA has massive contacts in the towing business.

Hagerty is much smaller and doesn't have the contacts that the big guys have. Maybe if everyone got a local tow company signed up, we'd get faster service.
