There probably isn’t anyone who wouldn’t dream of finding hidden treasure or making an important archeological discovery.
In 1978, two kids were digging in the ground in their backyard in Los Angeles and suddenly stumbled upon a Ferrari Dino 246 GTS. When the police excavated the car, they determined it had been stolen. The theft and the burial that followed were probably part of an insurance scam. The Ferrari was handed over to the insurance company and then sold at auction.
Unfortunately, resting in the ground didn’t do the car any good.
