Insurance company in Canada?

I live in Calgary, Alberta, I have a '70 Impala with a blown LS engine in it. It is (pretty much) ready to drive and I am looking for an insurance company to insure it.
Ideally as a daily driver, but leasure use only would be OK. I might go and do a few quarter-miles at the local open night on Friday evening (Secret Street, it is called here).
The company I was talking with does not want to insure me anymore at all because I have mentionned this occasional 1/4 mile...
They are strange, really: it is OK to have nitrous on the car, but a roll-bar is a no-go...
Any suggestion? A company with a local broker would be easiest, but maybe I am asking for too much...

I kind of feared that being honest and trying to understand was not good, but then, I do not really like the idea of lying to the insurance company either...
I know, by the way, that I would not be covered racing.
So, are you telling me to just forget to tell them "a few details"?
Do I also understand that 99% of modified cars on the road may not be quite insured properly? And that 99.9% of registered cars doing 1/4 miles, or drifting or such are never insured properly?...
How are you dealing with this issue?
