“Dude, where’s my car?” Nineteen-year-old Gavin Strickland traveled from Syracuse, New York, to Toronto to see a Metallica concert. He had to park a few miles away from the concert venue, and took a cab to the show. But after the concert, he couldn’t recall where the car was. Strickland spent two days searching for the Nissan, but at least he called his parents the next morning. They helped out by posting an ad on Craigslist trying to find the vehicle.
2015 Blue / Green Nissan Versa Sedan was parked within a $8 cab ride (about 2 miles) of the Rogers Center this past weekend. Our doofy son parked the car in an indoor parking garage, in the first floor (slightly lower / basement level) but that garage cannot now be located…. It is near a Starbucks where there is some construction going on. Also nearby is allegedly a strange spiral outdoor sculpture, and possibly a bank- maybe RBC? The car has US Florida license plates, a small Canadian flag affixed to the door frame, and a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker. A lost / missing vehicle report has been filed with the Toronto police. Please respond with photos of the car and specific location instructions to claim the reward.
A parking garage near a Starbucks near construction in Toronto could be anywhere, but Madison Riddolls saw the ad and took it as a challenge.
“I love puzzles, I love challenges and escape rooms, all that. I read a few clues about where it could be and it honestly excited me,” she told CTV News Toronto on Thursday.
Riddolls found the vehicle Thursday morning, four days after the concert. Gavin, who took a bus home to Syracuse, took another Greyhound back to Toronto to fetch the car. Strangely, this is not the first time he’s lost a car at a concert. He once dropped his keys and his car was stolen -and later recovered. -via The Daily Dot
