While the police and the DMV/PS may not actively enforce the milage
limitations, your insurance company will certainly care. If you are
involved in an accident, the car is stolen, or you have to file any
sort of claim on the car, the insurance company is going to check the
milage. And if you've exceeded it, then they don't have to pay on the
claim. And in some states, the limit for said vehicles (like Nevada)
is only 2,500 miles a year.

Collector/limited use insurance also has other limitations too.
According to Hagarty, the vehicle must be stored in a locked garage,
you cannot use the vehicle to commute it, the vechicle cannot be
parked out in the open, and no one under 25 may have access to the
car. So be aware that while collector car insurance may certainly fit
your budget, there are other aspects of it that may clash with your
driving routines.
