So, at least for that company, apparently history doesn't matter.

If I were to go an hour or two away, then price would be lower, in fact I could just buy a house for 100K or 200K, and use it for storage, but that far away is just like not having the stuff at all, it's too hard to get to in terms of time, you can't just take your "baby" out for a drive on a whim when it's 2 hours or more away. Plus, remote storage invites vandalism and theft.but this did remind me that there is a local "auto museum" that might be willing to display my car.... that's an avenue I forgot about .... maybe this will work out.... thanks for kicking my brain into gear.

SO now go ahead and tell me you KNOW what your car is worth and dont need an appraisal? Try telling that to a judge or attorney or adjuster--- If you dont have one, dont call me after the fire and ask me to come and appraise your car. YES, I am getting calls.. It is not easy to tell these folks I can not help them. Just how am I supposed to look at a burned up car and certify that it was a concours quality show car before the fire? Sure, I can see that it WAS a 1953 Eldorado, but condition? Unless there are records somewhere that link your car to the one lost, what can I do?
