Question

Australians need car insurance while driving across the US

I am travelling from Australia with a friend. We are buying a second hand car to drive across the states with. Can you make recommendations? We are currently staying in California and will be driving around the states over the next few months. We are looking at buying a second hand car with good safety stats but so far the forms I've filled for a benchmark figure on auto insurance haven't had much room include that we are from overseas (And the things that come with that). How would you recommend we go about getting insurance for a reasonable price and good coverage?
