I wonder if she left it there because the gears were stripped.

I'm pretty impressed with how far this Russian lady is willing to go to saving her car from being impounded. I've been in similar situations a few times back when I was younger and stupider and broker and still trusted myself to own a car, and I never went beyond pathetic pleading followed by drunken brooding. But this woman, wow! She's really dedicated to not having to take the bus out to the city pound. I really admire this level of civil avoidance.
