Default 1987 Honda Accord Steering Lock?

Hi, I've got a 87 accord I'm helping my friend fix up and get running. It belonged to his brother who is now out of the picture and took the key/we lost it, and we're trying to move it. We're putting it behind a pickup and using tow straps, but the steering is locked. I know first thing you're going to think is 'he's going to steal it'. I'm 14 years old, and don't really know what proof you need that I'm not steeling it. Thanks!

You can't use a tow strap when, the car that being towed, has a locked up steering column.

It just doesn't work that way.

Don't try to do this on your own anyway. If you do, you'll find out "The hard way" that it doesn't work.
