On June 15, 1957, a time capsule and a Plymouth Belvedere were buried in a vault next to the Tulsa County Courthouse. On June 15, 2007, the car and the capsule were exhumed and unveiled.

What a shame! They probably had high hopes in '57 this would work, especially since they coated it in rust preservatives! Let's hope they do it again, but this time try to stop the seepage of ground water!
