Car booted in my own condo parking space

This is just one more reason that I'd never live in an HOA. Too many HOA NAZIs on power trips.

"... I want to know how LEGAL all this is?"
Not unlawful if the HOA has parking restrictions and the sheep (erm, homeowners) don't participate and exploit/use the system to boot (no pun intended) out the over-zealous board members and change the rules.
I'd feel free to send a nasty note to the board/HOA and make sure all members of board get it saying you expect the HOA to cough up dough to you for this, or get the tow company to refund dough and cease-desist this policy. If they've updated the regs, we cannot know what kind of "notice" if any they are required to give you according to those regs/rules.
"We were never given any letters, updates, notices that they would be changing the rules on this and my ONLY notice was this warning sticker from someone who had no authority over anything from my side of the fence."
I wouldn't presume they won't say "you were given notice as of X date."
Always best to be nice/polite professional (vs. nasty) unless it's time to be nasty (which is not right out of the gate, because it makes you look bad/undermines your position).
"I want to know if there is any way to pursue further action or am I just screwed?"
You can't expect us to know the answer from here based on info provided. At very least, sounds like it's time to get involved in HOA governance.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
