My friend and i are planning to do a crosscountry roadtrip through the United States here in april.
It's our first roadtrip, but i've done quite a lot of research.
We have decided to start either on the west coast and end in New york (where i live) or start in New York and end on the west coast.
Our plan is to buy a car and if we start in New york we would probably sell it (or we would drive back again), and if we started on the west coast we would buy the car there and i would sell it in New York.
We can't lease a car because we both are 20 years old at the time.
I'm writing here to maybe get some tips on where, witch and how to buy a used here in the states - maybe some tips about what route to take (we talked about route 66), and at last the timeframe - how long should we expect to use to get back and though or just the one way, and how easy is it to find a decent car on the west coast.
I know its a lot of questions and not quite specific - and i hope that you'll bit in with whatever you have to say.
