1978 in history was jam-packed year, filled with different memorable events, celebrations, disasters, wars, and even normal happenings. In a usual neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, an extraordinary discovery was literally dug up. Two brothers from a newly-transferred family--who came there for a new life--thought of 'treasure hunting' in their backyard. Using their own 'treasure hunting' equipment, they unearthed more than just spare metals and pennies.
Guys, it's none other than a (then) four-year old Ferrari Model DINO 264 GTS.
After these men identified that some material similar to a car part was buried meters under, they contacted police authorities and dug it up. Shockingly, its a real car!
Poor car, you must me stolen, bullied or something. But why is it weakly wrapped up with cloth? Did somebody did it on purpose? Maybe, it's the culprit's way of preserving it.
Reports described the case as a form of robbery. According to some sources, car's original owner planned to claim car's equivalent insurance amount.
He employed accomplices--who happens to be the robbers. They diverted from the original plan, they chose to bury the car instead of driving it underwater.
The car was subjected to nationwide auction. The winning bidder, a mechanic, refurbished car's overall structure.
Ferrari model was good as new. It was plated with words "Dug Up", which is a perfect depiction of the vehicle's early fate.
Entailed with an adverse past that will never be erased in history.
