Dude, Where's My Car?

From TheLocal.de -

The 40-year-old, named as Andreas O., left his silver VW Golf in a side-street, near a tram stop, before hurrying to get a tram to the Theresienwiese where the Oktoberfest is held.

But after a day of beer, roast ox and folk music, the factory worker realized he had forgotten the names of both the street and the tram stop – and had no idea where his vehicle could be.

With eight different entrances to the Oktoberfest grounds and numerous train stations around the town centre where he might have parked, he could not remember how he had entered the site.

A police spokesman said "We get this sort of thing all the time,".

After making three trips back to Munich over almost five weeks, searching in vain for the lost car, the driver finally got good news from the local newspaper’s appeal on his behalf.

One of the paper's readers spotted his car and the Italian was finally able to collect it on Friday.

"I was absolutely thrilled. "With nothing but "somewhere in East Munich" to go on, police could only promise to keep an eye out while on the beat.
