Man remembers where he parked his car -- 20 years later

It happens to the best of us – forgetting where we parked our car. While for most, it takes a few extra minutes to find the vehicle, for one man in Germany, it ended up being 20 years. 

The whole thing started in 1997, when, unable to find exactly where in Frankfurt he’d left his Volkswagen Passat, he assumed it had been stolen, notes the Daily Mail

He reported the theft to police and apparently just went on living his life.

It was also said to be holding up a planned demolition. 

An area newspaper reported that police drove the 76-year-old man and his daughter to the location, but, sadly, the car no longer worked.
