[quote]TULSA, Okla. - Thousands watched Friday as a crane lifted a muddy package from a hole in the courthouse lawn: a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere buried a half-century ago to celebrate Oklahoma’s 50 years of statehood.
The wrapped car was covered in red mud as it came out of the hole. Its trademark fins were exposed, caked with either rust or mud, and a bit of shiny chrome was visible on the bumper.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Miss Belvedere,” said event organizer Sharon King Davis, a fourth-generation Tulsan whose grandfather helped bury the Plymouth.[/quote]
It will be interesting to see what other stuff has been buried that will come to light, now that we’re in the 21st century. Jimmy Hoffa, anyone?
