Caught this story last week ... And I can not, for the life of me, understand why they would even want to do this in the first place. Few at work have tried to explain it to me, but I just dont get it.
Back in 1957 the people in Tulsa, Oklahoma thought it would be neat to bury a current car and dig it up 50 years later to help celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Oklahoma becoming a state.
According to the event chairman back then, they chose the Plymouth Belvedere because it exemplified "an advanced product of American industrial ingenuity with the kind of lasting appeal that will still be in style 50 years from now."
WTF? They didnt bury anything else, just the car. The car wasnt even made in Oklahoma and it was a Plymouth Belvedere for god's sake. They could have at least buried a Bel Air or a Corvette.
And here's a car that got buried in the annals of time (and for good reason) the Lamborghini SUV aka The Rambo!
