One unregistered vehicle may be legally stored on a residential property. It can be parked in a driveway. A junk vehicle is unregistered and rusted, wrecked, discarded, dismantled, inoperative, and not intended for use on public roadways. A car being reconditioned is not considered junk.
Any vehicle is permitted to undergo major overhaul, including body work, provided the work is performed inside a structure designed and approved for such purpose. Race cars are controlled by several various licensing membership groups. In order to participate at a track, the race / demolition derby car would have to be operative and there is a registration requirement imposed by the controlling association (New York State Stock Car Association, Dirt Motor Sports, etc.). This does not affect storage that complies with applicable zoning or licensing requirements.
