dailymail - Gothic castles, deserted mansions, ivy-covered old houses - all of them perfect haunts for a ghost.
But how about something as modern and mundane as a tire depot in sensible South Yorkshire?
According to owner Nick White, a supernatural visitor has been running riot at his garage, which was originally a chapel and also served as a makeshift mortuary during the Second World War.
The uninvited guest has thrown stones and coins at staff, and stacked up piles of tires and moved them around the building while it was locked up overnight.
The ghostly figure, which materialized from time to time dressed in the style of the 1940s, is said to have first made its presence felt in 2003 but vanished (so to speak) after Mr White took over the business three years ago.
Now, however, the odd goings on have started again, with pre-war coins turning up mysteriously on the garage floor in two strange incidents a month apart.
Mr White found the first of the old penny pieces, dated 1936 and bearing the image of George VI, when he arrived for work one day in February.
The second copper coin, dated 1938, was lying in almost the same spot when Mr White, 35, and one of his mechanics turned up at the depot in Doncaster last week.
Mr White said: 'I took all the strange stories with a big pinch of salt when I bought the place. But I wouldn't like to say it's not true any more. There's no logical explanation for the two old pennies turning up like they did. I wish there was.
'It's a little bit scary knowing that there's something happening while the place is locked up at night.'
Previous owner Nigel Lee once called in a clergyman to perform an exorcism.
Mr White added: 'Nigel told me all about the tires being moved around when the place was locked up at night and customers witnessing small change and stones coming out of nowhere and flying here and there.
'It's all right being skeptical about these things, but I'm the owner of two very old pennies now, and I'd love to know where they came from.'
