By now, most readers have likely caught wind of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that was buried in front of the court house in Tulsa Oklahoma. The car was buried as a time capsule in 1957, with plans to open the case 50 years later. 50 years later just happens to be tomorrow.
Yesterday morning, town workers began preparations to raise the car and found a troubling sight. The concrete case the car was in had been compromised and water had leaked into the container. The car was sitting in water that reached halfway up the doors.
The only hope seems to be for the plastic bag the car was encased in which had been touted to protect metals from rust for 1,200 years. All we can do is wait and see what happens tomorrow.
