Locate the title to the car. Find the blank on the title that says "Seller's signature" and sign the title. This will give the person who eventually decides to take the car or dispose of it the right to do so without having to follow through a complex legal process to obtain a new title.
Place the title in the glovebox of the car. If you would like, you can also enclose a note that says you are abandoning the car and it is free to anyone who wishes to take possession of it. Remove any personal possessions from the car, including old mail that has your personal information on it.
Leave the car in whatever location you wish to abandon it in. Typically abandoned cars are those that do not run and are left where they died, however, you can drive a car to the side of a county or city road or business parking lot and leave it there. Leave the keys with the car.
