It will take a real shade tree mechanic to get to the root of the problem.

The real challenge is to remove the car, without damaging the tree. It could be done with a saws all and some patience. The windshield is already loose, to that is a good start. Then cut the windshield pillars, and get the doors open. Start cutting the rockers in half, and most likely, there is no floor left in it. You might have to cut the brake and clutch cables, since the tree most likely has grown around those. It would make for a great picture article in Corsa or even Hemmings..

Ran when parked...

This would make a good youtube video: Show up with a battery powered saws-all, and cut the car in half, weld it back together, get it running, and drive it down the street.
