The myth started off with rumors circulating within the early myth hunting community about a fictional car, a Ford Anglia, which was owned by Ronald Weasley in the novel Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, seen during the protagonists' escape from number 4 Privet Drive. This car was said to exist in the game as well.
Early rumors stated that the car can be sighted above Washington Beach, flying over the district at dark hours in a wrecked condition, similar to the condition of the Ford Anglia after being assaulted by the Whomping Willow in the novel. Uproar started when players presented evidence to support these claims. The evidence included a baby blue car levitating across the district.
Later on, it was demonstrated that hoaxers activated a flying cheat code, enabling cars to fly around the district. It was further revealed that the Oceanic was used for these fake sightings as it bears a similarity to the Ford Anglia.
