Can I use AAA to tow my new project car from the junkyard to my house?

Will AAA tow a car from a junkyard to my house? I was able to get my hands on a 1968 Plymouth Roadrunner through my local junkyard. It is in terrible shape, but it will be my new project car to fix up. The only issue I have right now is how to get it to my house.

“A Roadrunner is quite a find! Good luck with your rehab project.
As a matter of policy, AAA will not tow any cars that aren’t street legal. Vehicles that are uninsured or unregistered are included in that category.
They consider themselves an emergency service rather than a standard tow truck company.
This is only a AAA policy. Most tow truck companies will haul your car regardless of the registration.
You may want to check with your contact at the junkyard; they may work with a company that can provide a lower rate.”
