With the exception of states like Kentucky, vehicle storage laws are written and enforced at the local level. They might even be outlined in the HOA deed restriction packet you signed when you purchased your house. The SEMA Action Network is working hard to convince states to adopt its model legislation for inoperable vehicles or project cars. As ugly as weeds growing out the hood of a car may be, the model states that no one can touch your property as long as it's stored out of public view. Let's hope it catches on.
