For example, one company I checked would have required me to certify the vehicle was stored in a garage when not used, and if I used it for anything other than traveling to car shows I would have problems making a claim.

This has been my experience as well. The specialty insurance companies can offer lower rates BECAUSE of the use restrictions.
