Here's an interesting event I've been following . . . back in 1957, as part of a contest associated with Oklahoma's 50th year as a state, a brand spanking new '57 Plymouth was buried in a vault. It was brought out today as part of the 100 year statehood celebration --- sure hope it has weathered the stay. An attempt will be made to start the car this evening.

The contest, by the way, stipulates that the person or his/her heirs who guessed way back in 1957 what Tulsa's population would be in 2007 will get the car.

Boy, talk about a rust bucket, I watched the whole thing unfold here on local TV since I live here. Shame it was all under water for I don't know how long. The good news is that the time capsule that was buried with the car came out intact. What's a 48 star flag worth nowadays? Not to mention a bunch of other stuff. The car, although a bunch of rust will probably be worth a fortune to some investor.

A great publicity deal anyway. It was quite interesting, at least from my home view point of view.

Too bad!

Not only did the car not start, but it was apparently so poorly packaged and secured in the vault that it is just a pile of junk!

Too bad they didn't bury a Chevy, the '57 is a true classic.
