Won't be the first time.  A 2004 post from Frank:

I Do believe in ghosts now. And one is haunting the A40.
Tonight I moved the A40 across the street to mow the lawn. (it sits on
my corner with a for sale sign) I left the keys in the ignition and
went about mowing the lawn. I can see it right across the street it's
just there. All of a sudden I see the lights are on, OK, maybe my leg
hit the column light switch (it's opposite the key and way high) but
maybe I hit it somehow. I walk across the street to turn them off.
The door is locked! I didn't lock it, you can only lock it with the key
which is still in the ignition. (NOS door locks installed a month ago
thanks to Daniel S) So who locked the door when did they turned on the
lights? And how without a key?
So I climb in the boot, over the back seat, open the door and switch off
the lights. I tried starting it to make sure the battery wasn't low due
to the lights being on. It started OK but the tape player starts
playing. I did not turn it on.
Switch off the ignition, tape still playing the ghosts favorite song!!!
LOUD too. Key out of the ignition, music still blasting. Now I know the
tape player is wired thru the ignition, I wired it myself and it always
worked OK. Now I can't even lower the volume, it was at the ghosts
favorite level. Would not go up or down. Power off on the player, no dice.
So I told the neighbor it must be haunted. I left the keys in it again,
went out the drivers door, tested the door again to make sure it wasn't
locked, it was not.
Back to mowing the grass, the song ends and the tape player shuts off.
It was loud enough to hear across the street with a lawn mower running.

Finish the lawn chores and go to get in the A40. The door is LOCKED!!

Now I know it worked when I left it. I grab the extra keys, unlock the
door and the tape player starts playing before I even got in, and loud.

Fire it up, go for smokes while listening to some ghosts favorite songs.
At the store, I took the keys with me just incase Mr. Spirit wanted to
lock me out. He did not. Get back in and the tape player is off, push
power, it works fine, get home and park it and the tape player goes off
as it should. Test the door, it is not locked.

Now if this isn't a haunted LBC, I don't know what is.
I am not making any of this up.

I believe, I believe but I would really like to see him/her/it.
Now I wonder if this same ghost was the reason behind this car's not
wanting to start if the temperature was 40* or lower?
