My key won't come out!

I have a 77 Camaro with tilt steering. Key all of a sudden won't come out. In the past, I would have to twist the back of the steering column to the left or "park" position. Any ideas of how to get it out? Can I get rid of the locking mechanism? Thanks as always...

Might need to adjust the back-drive linkage. Adjust it so it pushes the collar farther toward the counter-clockwise direction.
