if you just use a car strictly for track use, and the only time its driven is on a track, do you have to get it registered/inspected every year?

is there some kind of setup the city has for these type of vehicles?

I'm willing to bet there are quite a few muscle cars at Ennis without up-to-date inspections/registrations.

Yeah.. its called a trailer queen. Meaning the only time it is on a street is when its on a trailer. Unload it at the track, race, load it back up, go home. If you drive the car on the street, it has to be inspected and registered.

It's fine to do that if you never plan on driving it on the street again.

you have to remove the license plates and the inspection sticker and such and take it to the DMV office and tell them you're taking the car off the street. you turn all that stuff in and then you don't have to tag it anymore..

But if you ever decide to make it street legal again, then you have to get it inspected again and pay all the back taxes on the tags for the time you didn't have it on the street.

I just dl'd the '2fast2real' dvd and at the beginning they have 2 trailer queens doing burnouts and street racing in Times Square.

Too funny...dumb as hell, but funny.

well basically you can ignore the inspection on it.. that will save you some hassles and the $40 a year for inspection...

when you're ready to put it back on the street, then you can just de-mod the car until it will pass, then go get your inspection.

Bet this differs state to state. I've done nothing except take the tags off the car. I haven't actually asked if there's a procedure but I don't care as I will never license the car again...most DMVs don't take kindly to street cars with welded roll cages, anyway.

You sure about the back taxes? Texas is adamant that it's a fee and not a tax. If you're not using the road, you're not liable for road tax. Of course, the trailer upon which you tow the car has been "taxed".
