I'm Rusty

The Buried Car 2, originally uploaded by digihuman.

The Buried Car of Tulsa emerged from its vault rusty, a disappointing outcome. I imagined it being unearthed looking very much as it did in 1957--nothing that a little dusting won't fix. Unfortunately water had seeped into its vault and kept it submerged for many years. Instead of a new, vintage car, the Plymouth Belvedere is a rusty relic.

No word yet on who won the prize. If I did I'd keep it. It's still a wonderful car with a wonderful story behind it.

If we were to bury a car to be unearthed fifty years from now, what would it be?
