>>Metallica Fan Loses Car 

(Syracuse, NY)  --  A Metallica fan is making headlines for losing his car at one of the band's shows.  Gavin Strickland drove from Syracuse to Toronto over the weekend, left his vehicle in an indoor parking garage and then took a cab ride to the venue. After the show, he realized he didn't know where the garage was.  Strickland's parents posted an ad on Craiglist saying, "Our doofy son parked the car in an indoor parking garage but that garage cannot now be located."  They went on to offer a 100-dollar reward for anyone who could find the vehicle.  Police say it turned up Wednesday.
