A: MORE INFO NEEDED.

TECHNICALLY THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO SO AND EACH DAY THE COST TO REMOVE THE CAR IS INCREASED.

THE ONLY THING I CAN THINK OF IS ASKING YOUR FRIENDS TO PAY OR SHARING WHAT YOU WROTE HERE WITH THE TOWING CO.

A: Contact legal services. They may help you file an in forma pauperis action and see if you can get the car but I doubt that there's another way around it.
