    I believe you can just go and take the vehicle back. You should stop by the office of the dealership and let them know that it is your car and was improperly brought there. While there, you can also call the police if there are any problems and they can verify that the title is in your name. You can also sue the seller in small claims court for any damages you have suffered in recovering the car.
    I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.

    Jerry is right. Go to the local police department, show them proof of title then proceed to the dealership and take back custody of your car. Yes, you have legal action against your "friend", the towing company and the dealership (failed to confirm title).
