|Classic Car Ins?

Ok, so my husband and I are slowly (God, so slowly...) restoring a 71 VW Karmann Ghia. But mainly we're working on getting her running (OMG SHE IS SO CLOSE, IT'S MADDENING!!1) and once she's dependable, she will be my daily driver. We will continue to work on making her |prettier pretty to everyone else, obviously. The thing is, this is considered a classic car, but I know nothing about classic car insurance other than there's such thing. I figure it's probably going to be pricier than normal insurance since it's a special kind or whatever. And while I am cheap, I'd hate for something to happen and an ins company to be all 'ur car iz old and teh sux0rs haha u r skrewd!' So, I am willing to shell out, though I'm still looking for any sort of bargain.
So, all that said - tell me what you know about classic car insurance! Can I just get a special policy from any old company, or will I have to possibly get insurance somewhere ~*SPECIAL*~? We already have a regular car and a regular policy, so if I have to switch, is it possible to get regular insurance from the classic company too? How can I tell if I'm getting raped on cost? Will my iPod ever work again?! Ok, I don't have an iPod, I just got carried away with all the questions! So, um, yeah. Any help or leads on finding some help would be awesome!
And for those of you who are wondering wtf a Karmann Ghia is, you can see the very few pics I have of her here, http://usera.imagecave.com/jynx_proof/ghia/, if you're so inclined.
