The 64 Galaxie is Getting Better
I fixed the brakes, cleaned the gas tank, changed the oil, got tags on it,
and put new tires on the front end. Figured I would try to drive to the
end of the road and back with my mama.

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
I hope you enjoy the video, along with some before, during, and after

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.

Well the question was, will it start? and yes, it did start, even tho it
was only for a short while because of the fuel pump, but that good enough
for me. I think this makes a pretty good 100th video, dont you?

Starting a crappy old Mustang II (after years of storage)
This Mustang has been in
storage probably for a couple of years. Checking to see if there's still
some life left in it.
The car has an LPG system built in. It took me a while to find out that the
fuel type switch was set to regular gas while the gas tank was empty.
Switching to LPG at least solved that problem. It didn't solve the massive
amounts of rust though, lol. The guy sitting next to the car is the owner
of the Mustang. He's wining
that too many tries could kill the starter motor. Stop bugging me, I know
what I'm doing lol!
