We've seen a handful of apps for classic car aficionados, and we've seen apps for insurance quotes and claims, but until now, we haven't seen those two services combined in one handy format. Enter the Classic Car Guide for iPhone and iPad.

The Classic Car Guide lets fans of vintage rides search for their dream car in a variety of ways, including location, make/model, and VIN. The app has access to the 100,000+ current and past sales listed in Keith Martin’s Sports Car Market database, and offers a wide variety of photos for many listings. During our testing, the Classic Car Guide generated an ample number of results in no time at all. And best of all, the app seems light, stable, and very quick to download.

Of course, serious collectors know that there's more to buying a car at auction than just ponying up a bid. There's insurance to consider, too. Conveniently, Classic Car Guide includes an insurance estimator powered by Chubb to help auction hounds get quotes and secure coverage before taking their precious new baby off the block.

Classic Car Guide is free to download from iTunes for the iPhone and iPad. Android and Blackberry users, sit tight: we have it on good authority that versions for you are on the way soon.
