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

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

An absent-minded German driver had his auto returned to him 20 years after he forgot where he parked it.

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

Of course, this is what a man did in Frankfurt, Germany way back in 1997.

And on Wednesday the old banger was finally found in the garage of a building earmarked for demolition, The Local reports.

Last year, a British man was involved in a similar incident last year when he forgot where he parked his vehicle in Manchester - only to have it returned by cops after six months.

A translated version of the newspaper's report says, rather poignantly, that what the man found when he was reunited with his old auto was that "old love just rusts".

At least the man, who authorities did not name, has a little closure now, even if he had a harder time getting around town for the last 20 years.

Quoting a local German language newspaper Augsberger Allgemein, the report said the man, who was not identified, was driven by the police with his daughter to be reunited with the vehicle.

It turned out the dopey driver parked the vehicle there almost two whole decades ago but forgot where he had left it.

However, since the auto was not in a functional condition, it was sent to be scrapped by the authorities.
