The June 2007 story grabbed my attention: 1957 Plymouth Belvedere unearthed in Tulsa OK, a Route 66 town. I know several people who were there in person. I watched it live on the internet before we left for Dad's team's softball game that Friday evening.

The car has been above ground 5 years, after being under ground 50. But, hardly any news; my main 2 sources don't seem to be very up-to-date. Maybe I'm the only one curious as to what has happened or is happening to the car...? Or, maybe I've just missed recent news?

Wow! That's a LOT of rust on poor ol' "Christine" there!

Heh ... sadly, no.

I've "unearthed" 2 sources since I posted. Amazing what you can find online, isn't it? Sharing them, in case anyone else is interested, too....
