[ba] FW: Looking For Help With Moving Old 5000CSQ

Years ago I bought an '87 5000CSQ in Nevada ... shortly afterward I lent it to my BiL up in Oakland to use ... while he had it the engine blew up ... I don't remember the problem ... I think it swallowed a valve.  Anyway, this car was never registered in California, and will not run.  He needs to free up the space in his garage and I'm looking for ideas.  The car is located up near 580 and Keller Ave.  I have no use for the car but it sounds like the folks at GAS/Wolfsport have moved beyond this model so they aren't interested and the standard towing folks don't want to touch it because it is not registered in CA.  
This is the car that I've reported to the list with the manual transmission from a non-turbo 5000 (i.e. 4.11:1 FDR) with the standard rear diff (3.89:1) ... so you can't lock the diff, but it does show what having a different torque split does ... 
Anyway ... if anyone wants a car for parts and can tow it away you're welcome to it ... otherwise I'm looking for ideas on how to get it somewhere ... PnP, whatever ... out of my BiL's garage.  
Thanks for any thoughts!
