Man Is Reunited With His Car 20 Years After Forgetting Where He Parked It

A German driver who forgot where he parked his car 20 years ago, recently had the car returned to him. Authorities in Frankfurt, Germany found the car parked in a garage building. The reason why the car suddenly became conspicuous after being parked there for so long is that the building is now set for demolition.

At the time, the owner of the car phoned the authorities to report the car missing. After the car was found, police drove the now 76-year-old owner to be reunited with the Volkswagen Passat. However, after 20 years of inactivity in the garage, the car was deemed unfit to drive.

When he lost the car, the man thought that he had searched for the car extensively and figured that it had been stolen. However, police said that it was just hidden from view and was in the exact spot where he had left it 20 years prior.

The owner had reported that it was stolen back in 1997. When asked about the fate of the car, Frankfurt authorities said, “The car can no longer be driven and will be sent to the scrap heap.” Even though the car was found, the owner can hardly rejoice.
