I had checked with the neighbor several times on the car and he never said there was any problems he's also a mechanic and was supposed to fix the vehicles but never did he stated that his boss who owns a tow company took the car but he never towed, worked on, or stored my car

My agreement was with only my neighbor who lives three houses down from me and never gave me notice of any kind
