That's kinda' funny. I remember in the mid to late '60s when Allstate created a blacklist of cars. The top of the list was the 427 Cobra.

The policy is that they wouldn't write a policy on a car that had a ration of 10 to 1.
Weight v hp.

I am suspicious as to why I haven't seen a resurgence of that policy?


With a thousand hp, what does the ratio work out to on that? 3 to 1? Yikes! It must be like driving on ice all of the time?
