A 76-year-old German man for unknown reasons drove his car into the garage of an industrial building in Frankfurt-am-Main in the late 1990s and left it there, Augsburger Allgemeine reported.
Then, apparently, the man forgot where he parked the vehicle and reported it to the police as missing.
The car was discovered by accident when the city authorities decided to demolish the old building a few days ago.
When the police arrived at the site, it identified the car's owner and returned the vehicle back home. Unfortunately, the car is broken down and is likely to spend the next few years in yet another garage.
