What is the NJ law regarding parking my un-inspected vehicle in my private driveway of my owned home?

I have a 1998 Mustang GT Convertible that I have not driven in two years.  The car is in excellent condition, But will probably need some exhaust work before I put it back on the road.  The car is registered in NJ currently.  The car is also fully insured.  Neither have ever lapsed. I move the car a few feet a day to avoid getting flat spots on my tires, and also wash and wax the car bi monthly.  It can in no way be mistaken as abandoned or junk. I drive my other car daily, which is inspected, insured, and registered. Today the Oradell, NJ, Police told me I would be fined for an uninspected vehicle if the car remains on my driveway. Do I have a right to keep my car in my driveway uninspected if I am not using it on public roads?  Advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
