All the hype started to wane right after they unveiled it, and now that it dried out, cracks are showing in the sheetmetal. That's what happens to metal that's been submerged for decades then exposed to air. The historians that dig up old relics from a lake bottom always keep them wet before they conserve them.

That car is absolute junk. I can't imagine anybody buying it for display.

That old girl was buried alive! They should have put her in a museum and maintained her. I wonder what a no owner '57 would have been worth?

Did you watch the video?

http://www.kotv.com/e-clips/Default.aspx?id=6779

The winner of the car was announced.

http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2007/...ap3851396.html

I would look for more photos on ebay soon. However, I think the city wants it for the historic museum. They will probably work out a deal with the nephew. Much better they spend the money on a rusted out piece of junk than fix the roads. If the potholes get any deeper, all of our cars will look like Miss Belvedere.

Burying something just sounds like the worst idea ever. Why not put the car in an above ground museum (as mentioned above) and just put some opaque plastic or glass around it or even a cloth cover and take that off in 50 years?

Oh well, I guess hind-sight is 20-20. Burying a car and expecting it to look like new 50 years later is probably the least of the mistakes we made in the 50's eh?!

It looks like it is in a storage building. I know there was some talk about contesting the nephew's claim since he was not a direct heir. The winner is deceased and had no children. It will probably sit in the storage building until the attorneys are done. Did you see the end of "Raiders of the Lost Arc"?

Oh, and if you read the article to the end, you will see we are planning on burying yet another car (or truck).
