Both doors stuck windows up

I have a 1980 z28 that has been sitting for a decade. The city wants me to move it in 10 days, but both the door latches are stuck and the windows are up. The locks were very stiff. I could barely get the driver side up. The passenger side unlocked fairly easily, but the handel is broke, so it adds a little more complexity to the issue. I tried jacking it up in different areas, locking and unlocking the passinger door over and over, penetrating oil, butting up against it over and over. I am out of options. Anyone have suggestions?

I'd call AAA and have them move it for you. Even if you get the doors open it's unlikely you'll be able to get it started after 10 years. If you only need to move it a short distance, put a rolling jack under the rear end and push it.
