Man loses Focus after forgetting where he parked it

Seven months later he finds it! Ah, what a happy ending.

Kind of amazing that it started right up (with a jump) after sitting so long!

If I managed to lose my car for seven months, I think I'd turn my lic. in....

That actually isn't excessively long for a vehicle to sit. My last vehicle sat for 9+ months once and it didn't even need a boost to start it, battery was still good. Most of that 9 months was cold Canadian winter too.



Ya, funny story though. My buddy once reported his vehicle stolen to the cops, and it was like a week later that one of his friends called him up and asked if he was coming to pick up his vehicle. For some reason he totally forgot that he took it there.

X-reg Ford Focus? I wonder why they mentioned it was worth 3,000.00 pounds?
