I was talking to a guy showing a Caprice LT1 wagon at "Coffee and Cars" last month and discovered that he is our local Geico adjuster......
Maybe "Wagon Sleigher" is a claims adjuster and is simply frustrated that beating people out of a fair settlement for their damaged stuff is maybe not so easy.....

As a retired insurance appraiser, I can tell you it isn't an easy job. Most days I (and my co workers) just tried to keep our heads above water and move onto the next claim. Since I am a die hard car guy I always tried to be fair with people, especially fellow car guys, when they had an accident. This job is like most others in that there are jerks and nice guys too. The advice I've given several times before is simple-be nice, professional, and know what you have. Knowledge always trumps ignorance, and if need be, educate your adjuster/appraiser as to the special value of your particular car. Don't whine, provide facts. Insurance is about numbers and risk, nothing more. If you can provide solid numbers (your cars value) it makes his job easier to justify a higher payment. Win/win.

I put an actual cash value ins policy on my wagon for $10,000, so they have to pay when a claim is filed.
I did the same on my 06.5 Duramax because it has 20,000 miles on it and is realistically worth $30-$35K and the book value is probably $15-20K.  I'm not eating that if they get wrecked, they can pay up!  

Its a great way to insure cars that are "not ordinary".  
Who wrote your policy? I'd love to do something similar with my Roady wagon. It's a 21 year old car that looks like it's 3 years old. Getting hit by some idiot (again) is my biggest fear. I've been very lucky in that the last 3 claims I had on it didn't total it, they just made it better!

I took out a classic car policy with Hagerty through Nationwide on my 1996 Caprice. They initially would not write the policy for more than $5000, but after I sent them several sales results from eBay and listings at dealerships nationwide, they relented and wrote the policy for $12,000. With liability ($100/$300K), collision, comp, towing, and glass, the rate was about $500/yr. Seth Halbert is the lead underwriter with Hagerty, and he's knowledgable about these cars.
