    A potato works better, if that is your objective. The banana will just blow out. But why immobilize it?

    I agree.

    A friend in Philly had a pickup truck on the street directly in front of her business that didn't budge for a couple of weeks. She phoned the police who said they were not interested in parked vehicles, but they were interested in derelict vehicles, like those with a couple of flat tires. Maybe someone loosened the valve cores on the street side tires to flatten them. A couple of days later, the truck was gone. :headscratch:

    In college I had the same situation. A busted up piece of junk car on flat tires taking up the prime parking spot in front of my apartment for months without moving. One night , fueled on alcohol , and a few friends , one says let’s move the car. Ok. Let’s do this. Ten guys picked up the 1980’s Kia and literally tossed it into the bushes across the parking lot! Finally! Got my prime parking spot back! A tow company towed it out of the bushes within 24 hours and never saw the car again.

    As for your abandoned car, let the air out of the tires at 2am (doesn’t damage anything , not a crime), so it looks like a LONG time abandoned car. Have the city tow it away. Or private tow company.

    Worst case, have some buddies over, drag it into the road to be an obstruction , and the police will have to tow it away then.

    I can absolutely guarantee that I would not let some random car sit abandoned for weeks/months outside my house. That’s a problem and I solve problems. Sometimes you have to think outside the box.

    Go to the DMV and tell them you want to get an abandoned car title. Usually you have to contact the current owner so they dmv should silly you with that info. You can atleast try to get in touch with than and get it moved or get the title and make $100 on scrap.

    If it's abandoned, time to see what's inside. In front of your own house, who is going to say anything?

    Can you apply for an abandoned title and call it yours?

    Expanding foam in the tail pipe is the best you can't just pull it out

    I need 2 of the fake wire wheels. Please take them off the car by removing the centercaps. Then a bolt. I would love them.

    Betcha it's broke and the owner's broke. Used to see these kinda-sorta abandoned cars in big parking lots. We'd tow after a month and occasionally get an irate owner complain.
