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...

If I was an insurance company I would cancel your car liability insurance too.

You told then exactly what they do not want to hear. EVER

By the way car liability insurance is invalid when the car is used in any kind of a speed contest. Its in the standard insurance policy agreement. Read it.

For the daft,,,, that meas when ever your car is at the drag strip, your car liability insurance is invalid. If you run over someones kid, there, you are on your own.

You are your own worst enemy. The local phone book is full of insurance brokers, but now you will pay a premium cause you have a canceled policy-refusal to re new.

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?
