Can I get a car loan for a car I buy at an auction?
Do you have to pay cash for a car you buy at an auction? I want to go to a car auction for a 1979 Trans Am, but I'm not sure if I have the cash to buy it outright.

“No, you can’t get a loan for a vehicle at an auction. That goes against the very idea of an auction, which is meant for the used car to go with the highest cash bidder.
If you’re afraid you won’t have enough cash to purchase your Trans Am, you might want to get a small personal loan beforehand. This will give you the capital you need, and you can repay the loan if you don’t need the money.”

Should I get the Virginia state-minimum insurance requirements for my motorcycle?
I just bought my first motorcycle, and I need to insure it before I get on the road. I was thinking of just getting the Virginia state-minimum requirements because I don't plan on driving too much until I'm comfortable. Should I do this?

My small town has mostly dirt roads, will AAA still provide towing coverage to me?
Will AAA cover tows for my area if we only have dirt roads? My AAA agent said that the membership package doesn't cover tows for vehicles that are "off-roading". I live in a small town and we don't have a single paved road here. All of our roads are dirt and gravel.
