Rusty 1957 Plymouth unearthed in Okla.
By JUSTIN JUOZAPAVICIUS, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 49 minutes ago
TULSA, Okla. - A concrete vault encasing a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere buried a half-century ago may have been built to withstand a nuclear attack but it couldn't beat back the natural onslaught of moisture. At a Friday ceremony complete with a couple of drum rolls, crews removed a multilayered protective wrapping caked with red mud, revealing a vintage vehicle that was covered in rust and wouldn't crank. . .

That's so sad!  Bluesad

Tucked away in a corner of my grandparents' barn was a similarly gorgeous Plymouth, 1960 I think.  Theirs was in considerably better condition though.  I used to sit in the driver's seat in an imaginative one-man version of Cops and Robbers.  They sold it with the farm about 15 years ago, not realizing anyone wanted it.  Haha.  Story of my life...

My dad used to have four Simcas from the early 60s; two that ran and two for parts.
They had engines in the rear and were air cooled, just like VW Bugs.

Boy, I wish I still had one of those.

Another cool car my dad had was a 1972 Mazda RX-2 with a rotory engine. I got to drive it a couple of times before it caught fire and burned on the side of the road.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
