If you don't drive it on the street at all, I suggest cancelling the street insurance and just getting STP insurance (storage/transportation/paddock). My car has no registration or inspection stickers. But I do have a valid title in my name.

It's not so easy in my experience. I tried to do this and 3 different people at the DMV including a supervisor (plus them calling Sacramento) resulted in dumbfounded expressions. "Off road vehicles are typically ATVs and the like so when they would try to enter the vehicle type the computer would reject it since it knew the VIN was for a regular car. I ended up just registering it as a PNO--costs the same and has basically the same effect. PNO means it can't touch public roads, so trailering is okay. And it's ok to drive it on private roads.

Yup, non-op it but keep the title (PNO), its cheap and if/when you go to sell it, you have a valid title. You would be surprised how hard it can be to sell a title-less car even if it is a race car. People just don't trust people anymore.
