I would absolutely laugh my *** off if you did this.

Literally.

As in, my *** would have to be surgically re-attached.

Getting a trailer into that little parking lot would be impossible.

A standard tow truck MIGHT be able to squeeze in, but it'd be hard. Especially since it's right next to the wall- you'd need to do some fancy maneuvering to get it out of there.

Realistically, you'd need to open the car and then defeat the steering lock so that you can back it out of the parking space and get it lined up facing the street.

Alternately, you could jack up the rear and and slide it back out of the parking space.

Oh, FYI, there's a security camera pointed right at that spot. Since I have officially sold the car to Kenzo and FedExed the key to him this morning, I will have no problem at all calling the police and informing them of this fact if it transpires that he shows up next week to collect the car and finds that it is missing.

Thanks Joe.
Came back last night...drove like a dream. There was a small part of me expecting it to be stripped down and sitting on bricks.

Where it sits in its new home:

Nice to see that it's found a home. It's almost hilarious how that car just stubbornly refuses to die, hopefully it'll serve you well.

And I need you to read the mileage on the odometer for me so I can write it on the title. I forgot to do that before I left.

Oh, and stupid question: did I leave an aluminum pipe about 3 or 4 feet long in the trunk? I have a feeling that I may have.

I haven't checked, but I will later on. I'll get the reading too.

IIRC, I can fit an Lee Enfield No1 MK3 in the trunk of my NB and its 44" long.

So disappointed I missed this thread. I was probably 10 minutes from this car all day Sunday
