                Blow Your Money
          On Cars, Not Insurance.                             Financial Group

                                                                     Insurance and Investments
 Let’s face it, the less you spend on insurance, the more
  you’ll have to spend on the car of your dreams. So call                       Mike A. Barrett
 Hagerty. Since all we insure are collector car owners-the
 safest drivers on earth-our rates are ridiculously low. So
                                                                                  Joe LaFave
