Pretty neat!!!! http://www.buriedcar.com/

On June 15, 1957, a brand new gold and white 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Sport Coupe was buried in a time capsule at 6th St. and Denver Ave. in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma. The time capsule was part of Golden Jubilee Week: Tulsa's celebration of Oklahoma's semi-centennial.

The car will be unearthed as part of the Oklahoma Centennial festivities on Friday, June 15, 2007.

That is neat. I'm sure that thing will sell for a fortune at the Barrett-Jackson car auction. It'll have bad tires, and a lot of the plastics might have gone south. And if the thing had vinyl in it, the windows will be coated in a slimy film. Other than that, she'll be cherry. Can't wait to see her come out.

EDIT: But you know... Christine was a 1958 Plymouth Fury, which was the upgraded Belvedere. The 57 and 58 looked a lot alike... maybe they buried it for a reason!

Maby .. :)
As part of the "Tulsarama!" festivities, citizens of Tulsa were asked to guess what the population of Tulsa would be in the year 2007. The guesses were then recorded on microfilm and sealed in a steel container buried with the car. When the car and artifacts are excavated, the person whose guess is closest to Tulsa's 2007 population is to be awarded the Belvedere.
