Looking for a CREDIT UNION to join. Any suggestions ?



I'm a resident of Delaware, but i reside 3-4 months out of the year in california for vacation. I want to buy a car in about 4-5 months, that will stay in California all year long and i was told CU have the best rates.


Now my question is like that. Should i join a CU in my resident state or in the state i want to buy the car? Does it make any difference ?

I can join easily some CU in Delaware because i meet the requirements to join, but i haven't found yet any CU in California were i meet the requirements, because obviously i don't live there or am part of any organisation they request. 


Does anybody know a CU in California that I could join without being a californian resident? Or any CU that is nationwide ?


Any help would be great
