If you own property I am sure you "could" do that. What state do you hold your license in? Which is considered your main residence? I am sure it can be done but you would have to check with insurance, especially if its on classic plates. 

 

OR, are you asking about you visiting Cali from out of state on a trip? 

 

 

My question is along lines of your first option.

My two cents- I don't think the state of CA is the major concern. I would be looking at the possibility of an accident, which happens. Will your insurance cover you?

Does anyone have experience driving an out of state classic mini in California?  I've seen several AZ, Montana, Oregon, plated classic minis in CA.  I'm wondering if anyone has been pulled over (or other problems) because of it?

Thanks
