There's several large rental companies who'll rent out cars from 21 on, although under 25 you pay a much higher rate due to extra required insurance. I just looked it up for Alamo; you pay $25/day extra if you're 21-24.
No idea what the possibilities are for buying, unfortunately. Somehow I suspect that buying a car in Canada and selling in the USA would be an awful lot of hassle. :/

Assuming that you wanted to buy a car for eventual sale or registration in the US you might be better off to purchase in Seattle, drive right across the border for your Vancouver visit and then continue on your trip to LA. No import hassles.
