U.S. METALLICA Fan Drives To See Band In Toronto, Forgets Where He Parked His Car

An American METALLICA fan made headlines in Canada after driving across the Canadian border from Syracuse to Toronto for the band's concert, only to forget where he parked his car.

Gavin Strickland said he left 2015 Nissan Versa somewhere on the first floor of an indoor parking garage and then took a $8 cab ride to the Rogers Centre. After the show, the 19-year-old couldn't remember where the vehicle was located.

Strickland's parents posted an ad on Craiglist on Tuesday offering a $100 reward to anyone who can find the car.

"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," Stickland's parents said in the posting.

What made the situation even worse for Gavin was that his father bought the car for him last year so he could commute to work and college.

Late Wednesday, Strickland confirmed the car had been found. He wrote on Twitter: "And the story is so crazy it's on the news all over Canada. I've become famous over a lost car."

Before the car was found, Gavin didn't seem too concerned about it. He apparently attended a KORN concert in Syracuse on Wednesday night. His parents say he took an Uber to get there.
