Towing it home is called auto theft. I'd avoid that line of action. <grin>

Once the city/county/state tows it, it might end up being auctioned off if no one ever claims it. Might talk to the jurisdiction that will/has towed it and let 'em know you're interested. If it was towed by a private tow company at the request of the law enforcement agency, they will eventually jump through the legal hoops to gain ownership of it so they can sell it. Let them know you're interested in it.

In the meantime, keep an eye on it and see if it ever gets stickered. If so, see which agency put the sticker on it and call them. They'll most likely be the one's that'll tow it.

Good luck.

As a side to your question, how about this question --

If you ran out of gas and left your Caprice on the side of the road, and when you got back with a jerry can only to find some twit sitting in the driver's seat... would you

A) shoot the bum
or
B) beat him with a bat

then run him over a few times for good measure.

Rax, here is the answer to your question in "Texan":
Pull him out, beat with bat, shoot him and then run him over.

I have occasionally noticed a Cappy abandoned, the 1st thing I think of is "PARTS!" of couse I would not want to be the guy sitting in my driver seat when I come to reclaim my beloved machine. [img]graemlins/.gif[/img]

When I lived in upstate NY (years ago) I had a room mate once from NYC that drove a '64 Impala (piece of junk). Seems like every time he went home for the weekend, he'd come back with different (better) body parts (hood, doors, trunk lid, bumpers, etc). Seems like when he saw another 64 abandoned (i.e. parked) on the side of the road, he'd check it out for parts that were in better shape than the one's he had and then swap them on the spot. He said it was just the way they did things down there. He did say that he'd gotten mugged once while stripping a car.

You just committed a burglary, if it were me I'd already called the police and filed a report. You have no right to go in anyones cares, who cares if its a Caprice or any car for that matter.
