About HRG

HRG (HRG Engineering Company Ltd) was a British car manufacturer based in Tolworth, Surrey, and founded by E.A. Halford, Guy Robins and Henry Ronald Godfrey in 1936. It took its name from the first letter of their surnames.

The cars were intended to continue the traditions of Frazer Nash, H.R. Godfrey, along with Archibald Frazer Nash, having founded and run the GN cyclecar company from 1910 to 1922. In 1938 an HRG was the highest placed British car at Le Mans and in both 1939 & 1949 won the 1½ litre class. A HURG cost £395 (about half the cost of the 1.5-litre Aston Martin) and weighed almost 1000 pounds (450 kg) less.

Car production ended in 1956 after 241 cars had been made, although the company remained in business. In 1965, they made an experimental Vauxhall VX 4/90 powered sports car. The company ceased trading in 1966. The company made a profit until the end.

HRG Association

There is a thriving owners club called the HRG Association. Of the 241 cars made, it is estimated that 225 survive and many of the cars are still in active use with a few of them in active competition, three of them are regularly out competing in classic trials and can been seen in action and a 1938 Le Mans Model can be seen at various historic race and speed events. A team of three cars won the 2006 Vintage Sports Car Club 2 hour team relay race at Donington Park, under the name of Ecurie Lapin Blanc (being the 1939 & 1949 Le Mans team name), proving that the HRG is still a very competitive car.

Car Insurance Comparison – Why It is Important

Knowing what to look for when making a car insurance comparison is getting to be more important all of the time. Most, if not all states require motorists to have some level of auto insurance.

But now, states like Mississippi that do not have insurance databases are going to have them, and there must be proof of insurance before the automobile can get its tags renewed. According to the Jackson Free Press, the Mississippi legislature passed a new law in mid-March of 2011 requiring that motorists have more than just an insurance card, but actually have the insurance and be in the database. No insurance means no tags. This will prevent motorists from signing up for insurance and then canceling the policy to save money and still have the card.

With this becoming more common, it is more important now than ever to know how to make a car insurance comparison. Everyone wants to save money on auto insurance, and if that is the name of your game, you will want to get the absolute minimum that your state requires. That does not necessarily mean that you are going to have great insurance, though, because it will most likely just be liability. If your car still has some value to it, this may not be the best for you. If your car is totaled, you will have no way to recover the loss.

If you are already covered under a health insurance plan, it may not be necessary to get additional medical coverage with your auto insurance. If not, this could be crucial. Other additions that you will have to consider include towing, comprehensive coverage, theft, extra liability, car rental and a number of other options your agent will be happy to show you.
