Miss Belvedere was the talk of the town in June of 2007 after being unearthed from the deepest darkest depths of downtown Tulsa. She was a brand new 1957 Plymouth with just 4 miles on her when they dunked her in the pit of no return. Fifty years later when the light of day finally shined on her again in 2007, she had not aged well. She looked like an automotive version of the Cryptkeeper (Remember that show – Tales from the crypt!??). Anyway, as it turns out, automobiles cannot be preserved by dunking them under water for 50 years. Wait….WHAT!? Yes it is true, dirty gutter water from the Tulsa streets does not preserve sheetmetal, fabric, or plastic.
Shortly after she was raised from the sarcophagus, she was put on display for all the interwebzz and journalists to get their piece. Then rumors began to spiderweb the internet about what the next step was. Drop her in a museum? Restore her? Junk her? Who knows. Then “Ultra One” got a hold of her, and began soaking the entire body in rust remover. It was apparently going quite swell, until June 25th 2008, when the story line ended…….
It has been 3 years since the earth spit her back out, and as car enthusiasts, I feel like we deserve an update. I have scoured the internet looking for new pictures, video, or even legitimate updates, and came up empty.
So Readers – I ask you this: Where the Heck is Miss Belvedere in 2010 ? What is the latest?
