Sometimes the rear drums rust to the shoes and lock them up especially if the car has been setting with the parking brake on. You probably will have to take the wheels off then hit the drums with a hammer to break them loose from the shoes. Remove the drums and sand the shoes and drums.

These cars are notorious for rear disk brake calipers freezing. I think it was even recalled for this. Check to see if you have rear disk brakes, if you do then most likely it's the calipers. You can buy remanufactured calipers from any parts store.

some times rocking the car back and forth get it free but DONT drag the car can really mess it up trust me i did it.
