Vehicles at Road War 101

Hey, all, HUMVEE Driver here. Can anyone tell me if there are plans to have a parade or a display or whatever at Road War 101 next year? I've seen the pics from last year and I'd like to bring my own Mad Max-type truck. Just a beat up old pickup. I plan on trailering it out there, as it will not be road legal or even registered or insured. I plan on finding one in a junkyard that starts and stops and 'modifying' it. I will remove the hood and all the glass to make it look 'better'. And... (big breath here) I want to mount a large weapon system on the bed. Either a flamethrower or a harpoon gun. An engineer friend of mine thinks we could make either one actually work, but I am not going that far. Now, I know about all of the trouble that the Texas Twelve went through, and with that in mind I'd like to know if anyone thinks this is too much; or likely to get me arrested. As far as I know it is legal to trailer a vehicle without it being registered or anything (those who restore old cars do it all the time) But as for parking it or driving it around a little I'm not so sure. Any legal experts out there? Let me know, Dogs of War!!!

In most parts of North America highway and traffic laws only apply to vehicles on public roads.

So any vehicle not used on public roads, or public property like the state fairgrounds is not subject to said law (in most places). A truck that you drive around say in your field, or some guys parking lot (with permission of course) is not subject to these laws. The exception would be any kind of excessive noise if the neighbours complain, and of course drinking and driving as it is a crime no matter where or what type of motorized vehicle.

You can trailer a car/truck as long as the trailer is suitable for it and it is securely safely and combined weights etc meet DOT codes. The trailered vehicle would be like any other cargo on your legal trailer. Just tie it down safely and that is it.
