Hi, i'm new to the forums and have had a look around, i can't see this question asked anywhere else, but sorry if it has.
basically, i'm from the uk, but am planning on doing a road trip around america with a few friends. we're thinking of buying a car rather than hiring one, as it will around a 2 month road trip, so we think hiring would cost a fair bit more than buying a cheap old one. is this really practical? and what's the deal with insurance in america? do we actually need it? from some research, it seems that to get insurance, we'd need a fixed address, which we wouldn't really have.
does anyone have any recommendations for a good road tripping car for less than $3000? obviously we'd love a proper american classic, like a mustang or chevy or whatever, but is that feasible at that budget? and any idea what price insurance would be on a car like that for a 25 year old? we'd just want the basics to cover damage to other people/their cars probably.
cheers in advance
