shipper just updated the time frame. they are shooting for either friday or saturday.

Insurance- Any suggestions? Most likely going with Hagerty since I've heard good reviews about them from a couple of buddies that have non vw classic cars. Any vw input? i have Statefarm for my daily driver.

thanks, will most likely be starting a new thread one the bus arrives and sharing its history.
