Semi-Abandoned Car, how to proceed?

Helping a guy down on his luck, who knew someone who knew someone who I knew, I agreed to let him store a car on my property for an undefined time. The car was brought in on a flatbed, and placed. Two years later, we can no longer store the car, and need to figure out what to do. The owner has no money to pay to store it anywhere, and no place of his own to keep it. What can I do to a) find a new home for this car, b) make sure it doesn't stay here indefinitely? [more inside]

What's the minimum amount of activity my car needs to start in 6 months?

I'm subletting my house for 6 months and need to leave my car in my garage for that period. My tenants have offered to start the car periodically the keep the battery running. The car is not registered, so they won't be able to drive it more than a few feet on driveway (backing out and driving back in). Is this amount of activity enough so that the car will be functional when I return? Or do I need to take more extensive storage measures (e.g. disconnecting battery)? Thanks!
