It is important for you to keep in mind that generally, if you

do manage to obtain insurance and the car is damaged, the payout

will go to the legal owner, not you. You have no insurable interest

in the car.

It's legal, but it's strongly, strongly recommended that you not

put a car title in someone else's name. Once you do, they own the

car. They can choose to keep it, drive it, move it and keep you

from operating it. You may think that will never happen, but

believe me as someone who works in a police department, we see the

complications of this every single day.
