It's not safe to tow anything with that rig.

Do your friend a favor and let him borrow your cell phone to call a tow truck...

I wouldn't risk it with such a car. See if you can borrow a Land Rover from somewhere.

i wouldn't do it, man. sounds like a bad idea. not only is that engine really small, but have you ever towed a car before? this is why there are professionals.
