    Then what kind of budget are you looking at?

    I am getting the distinct impression that your goals and expectation are not really matching up with reality.

    There is absolutely no way you can buy, register, insure, and repair a car for anywhere close to $1700 in the United States.

    Case in point: I have a 15 year old car, worth $750 blue book. It needs about $750 worth of repairs if I were to sell it today. I am a California resident and I just got my year's registration for this old car, $150. My insurance, and I come under "old lady" insurance (rather than under age 21), is well over $500 for the car for 6 months. So there's over $2000, and frankly, I wouldn't take this car out of state.

    To register and insure a vehicle in most states, you need proof of residence (not just a friend who will "loan" you his address) or a good lawyer (add $$$) willing to tread through the nitty-gritty to register the car and try to find an insurer who would even carry you -- you have your age AGAINST you, on top of being a non-resident.

    Check with Fox Insurance. That was the advice given to you earlier, and I would definitely heed that advice.

    I didn't recommend Fox Insurance, I recommended Fox Car Rental.

    Oops. That's what I meant. Good catch, GLC!
