Car insurance for a modded car is a losing proposition. Renter's insurance would've been the thing to get, and it is STUPID cheap. My renter's policy is a $30,000 policy, and its something like $88 dollars per year. No reason NOT to have it. I'll be it wouldn't have cost him more than a couple hundred bucks to have a $100k policy.
