What happens when you're moving and a car breaks down?

I'm stuck in Adair, Iowa (pop 800) with a probably unfixable car which was towing a trailer hauling all my possessions. OMG help.

I'm moving from Michigan to Davis, CA to attend grad school at UC Davis. The most economical option for moving was to buy a trailer and pull it with my '97 Lincoln Continental, so I did. Except said car dumped all the fluids in my vehicle on the ground in Iowa. The repair guy is going to take a look at it in the morning, but with a resale value of 2500, it's not looking good.
The original plan was to sell the car and trailer once I got to Davis for much needed funds to live on until my fellowship kicks in in November. How on Earth can I salvage this situation and avoid starving?
