Some Kids Were Digging In Their Backyard When They Hit Something. Police Have Never Seen Anything Like This

We all grow up digging around in sand boxes hoping to strike it rich and find some hidden ancient treasures.

What we typically find is an old Matchbox car or a present left behind by a cat. Either way it’s very rare to find something desirable.

Well, that’s not quite the case with a young group of boys in California.

They were digging in their yard when they found something that would make anyone’s jaw drop and their mouth start drooling.

In 1978, these kids were digging in their yard when they came across something big, something metal, and something very very valuable.

A buried Ferrari!

The boys actually discovered a 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS buried just a few feet under the dirt in their yard. The family had just moved into the house and immediately called authorities who came and roped off the area. A team of investigators arrived and unearthed the rare car.

After exhuming the Italian sports car, it was obvious that someone had planned on returning to retrieve the vehicle. It was very crudely mummified with towels in the vents and tape on many of the seams however the windows weren’t fully closed causing a lot of interior damage.

Farmers Insurance was contacted and because of the VIN number they traced the last owner. After the investigation, it turns out that the owner of the car had actually hired thieves to steal the car and dump it in the ocean so he could claim insurance on it. The thieves buried the car with the intention of returning to pick it up.
