Meet Dan, Hagerty Field Representative for Tampa, Florida

Dan Telfer, Tampa, Florida

I am a Territory Manager here at Hagerty, helping to provide drivers with classic car insurance in Florida. For the last 20 or so years, I have immersed myself in all walks of the automobile world. From drag racing, to road racing, imports to muscle, show cars to go cars -- I love it all! While my background has been mainly in Honda motorsports, I have lived in Detroit for the last 12 years and found a love and respect for American muscle as well. My current car of choice is a 2002 Honda S2000 that I have poured my blood sweat and tears into.

What is unique about the hobby in your territory?

The wonderful thing about Tampa, Florida, is that it’s car season 12 months out of the year -- there is no down time. This makes for a hobby schedule that is packed full with everything from huge car shows to leisurely cars and coffee events.

Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting."– Steve McQueen

Why Hagerty? What excites you about what we do?

Hagerty for me just makes sense, with being a car enthusiast for the last 20 or so years and having a background in customer relations, sales, and insurance, it’s a perfect fit. It is as though the job was made for me, and I was made for the job. In fact, it is difficult to decipher what is work and what is play for me at times.

Favorite car event of the year

My favorite car event has been the Detroit Grand Prix, though with the upcoming year I have a feeling it may be dethroned by all the amazing events on the books for Florida.
