No PB Blaster in the house, but, I suppose I'll have to get some.  The 
latches were greased--a long time ago--with lithium grease.

Yup, the local code says "inoperable," so I'm trying to prove to them 
that it is operable.  If I can't, then they can fine me and charge court 
costs and charge me for towing and disposal.  And, yeah, it's got 
current tags and insurance on it.  It's been sitting for quite a while 
with no one saying "boo!" about it, so I think the city's revenues are 
down because of lockdowns and quasi-lockdowns, so this is their way of 
generating revenue.
