This is standard procedure for moving around non-running vehicles, and I had to push tons of cars around like this when I worked at a car museum.

You'd never get this to work here in New York, though. You wouldn't get the car ten feet before it crunched into a pothole.

Nor would I try it somewhere that's not level. This would be... shall we say... interesting in San Francisco or on heavily-crowned roads.
