    It will be a neat thing no mater what, but I would put my money on the vault being full of water for the better part of the last 50 years and not much, if any thing has survived in good condition. If they had put the vault in the Court House it would have been a different story.

    I wonder how much water ,if any has leaked into the tomb as well. It could be sitting there filled to the top with water just rusting away....I wonder what it smells like in there?

    That's the year I was born, maybe I would look better if they buried me then too?...

    If it's on high ground and if they were smart enough to keep it away from trees and put it in a spot that wasn't going to driven over with heavy equipment/cars it just might be okay.

    I remember a new Vega being put in a time capsule. I think it was for the bicentenial in 1976, don't remember when they were going to open it. Bet that's a big pile of rust already.

    Dang, I grew up in Tulsa where the 57 Plymouth is, and went to college in Seward where the Vega is. I wonder if they're gonna bury a car anytime soon here in Conway, Arkansas!!!!
     
  19. A couple of years ago I said, I think the HAMB drags should be scheduled for that weekend... and I still think it.

    Hey...! :rolleyes:
    I might know a guy who has one to bury in Staunton, Ill.

    Ha, they also sealed up oil and gasoline "incase they are not available in the future" Still really no better way to power a vehicle even after 50 years. Lucky for us too.....
     
  22. That would be really cool to see! I wander who would get the car after they dig it up though? Maybe the owner of the car if he/she was still alive, or one of their kids? :rolleyes:

    The person who gets the car is the one who made the most accurate guess back in '57 on what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. If that person is dead, his or her closest living relative gets it.

    The car is in downtown Tulsa, not far from the Arkansas River. I've heard the water table is pretty high there, and the concret vault is not sealed so it's likely it's rusty like any other 57 Plymouth that's been buried in the ground for 50 years.

    It's long gone. one of thost Mopar nuts from the Forward Look forum side tunneled it out 5 years ago.

    When they open the tomb, will everything still be black and white, or has color seeped in?

    You were also there when they buried Jesus, old guy...:rolleyes:

    This will be one of the century's must see events. Hambr's should definitely be there to document the unearthing...it's in front of and under the courthouse sidewalk. I really don't think water will be an issue. They lined the tomb with a spray rubber type material.

    They should get Geraldo to open it....................just like that gangsters locker he found. Nothing in it but a pile "O" dirt....or rust.

    Working in the conservation feild relating to vehicles and aircraft at one of the major Australian museums, I'll be interested to see how this has coped with being entombed for this long. I would be interested to find out what they actually did to it when burrying it, if they inhibited any thing, with what etc.

    Should be interesting
