1957 Chevy in a wrecking yard
Can you believe, a complete 57 chevy belair 4dr hdtp just arriving into a
wrecking yard now, in Oct, 2009. They have to part it out because it came
from a police auction and sold to be dismantled only, it cannot be
retitled, and I would be afraid to own it because the person it was siezed
from may be dangerous, its not worth the risk, it suks, but I don't blame
the police for selling it to be dismantled only, they are protecting
themselves and you. I don't know if they are ready to sell parts off it
yet, but they will soon! See some of the other cars. A 66 chevelle 2dr hdt,
and 63-64 impalas plus Montecarlos SS's

Mack AC Driving off Trailer
This Mack AC is pretty cool! It was July 2007's Truck of the month on

of this Mack AC explained that the truck was converted by Ballentine Ale.
This truck is one of 50 for Ballentine Ale use. This conversion included a
Chevy Six engine and transmission, and a new hood and radiator.

Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.

57 Tulsa buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Boyd Coddington
Tulsa Story :This is a video pictorial of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that
was buried in
Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 15, 1957 as a time capsule. It was uncovered 50
years later on June 15, 2007.
I was hoping to see a pristine version of "Miss Belvedere", but as it
out, the vault leaked and filled with water, causing much damage to the
automobile. As a car enthusiast, I watched the story develop over the
few years. I waited and watched it live online as she was extracted from
the ground. When I saw the rust-colored dirt and muck on her, I had a bad
feeling about her condition.
I wish the person who won this car (by guessing the closest to the town's
actual 2007 population back in 1957) could have it restored, but that would
be a massive undertaking. On the other hand, she should get a chance to

Miss Belvedere Moves On
By Old Cars Weekly
After spending nearly 50 years quietly rusting beneath the Tulsa County
Courthouse lawn, the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere affectionately known as "Miss
Belvedere," is on the road once again.
Don't get too excited, when she rolled out of Tulsa earlier today, it
wasn't under her own power—she was whisked out of town in the back of a
After months of legal wrangling to establish ownership of what is clearly
the most famous "finned" Mopar in the world (yes, even more famous than
Stephen King's "infamous" Christine), Miss Belvedere has begun her journey
to New Jersey — and possibly a rust-free future.
Levada Humbertson Carney and Catherine Humbertson Johnson, elderly sisters
from Maryland, will officially take possession of the Belvedere as
beneficiaries of their brother Raymond Humbertson who won the car as part
of a contest held back in 1957.
Buried with the car was a time capsule containing people's guesses as to
what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. Included among the hundreds
of guesses, was one made by Raymond Humbertson of Cumberland, Md., who died
in 1979. His guess was only 2,286 off the actual census numbers, closer
than any other entry.
Assisting the cars elderly owners will be Levada Carney's son Robert Carney
and Dwight Foster, President of the UltraOne Corporation.
As you will recall, as part of this ongoing saga, New Jersey-based
UltraOne, manufacturer of a line of rust removal products, will now begin
the pain-staking process of de-rusting and preserving what remains of the
According to Robert Carney, the car, which suffers from extensive damage
after being submerged in conditions described as a "watery grave" for an
unknown number of years, may eventually be able to take to the road under
her own power.
Once Miss Belvedere arrives in New Jersey she will undergo a lengthy
cleansing and rust removal process that her new owners and the folks at
UltraOne hope will stabilize the car before sealing it with a clear-coat
designed to halt the rusting process.
"We will not be restoring the car but preserving her for the future," Mr.
Foster told the Tulsa World. "We have to stop the rust, because if nothing
is done, this car will be dust in two years."
According to the UltraOne Web site, future plans for Miss Belvedere could
include a second Tulsa unveiling and a tour around the country for special
events. Following the tour, the car's future remains unclear.
However, it has speculated that the car could find her way to the
Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale in the coming years.
