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.

Chevy Colorado in snow

2nd er 3rd try I put it in 1st just to see what happened.
How to Seafoam your vehicle (Also called Top Engine Clean)
This is a carbon deposit cleaner that when used can help eliminate the
carbon deposits that build up in the top end of your engine block. I
perform this about every 15,000 miles on my own vehicle.
Steps to seafoaming:
1. Bring your vehicle up to normal operation temperature
2. Separate seafoam canister into 3 equal parts (one will be for sucking
through a pvc line or brakeBooster
line, one for gas tank, and one for putting in the oil filler cap)
3. Locate the PVC valve that runs through the intake manifold, for this is
where you will initially suck 1/3 of the seafoam canister through.
(If PVC is non accessible then you can use your brake Booster line in the same manner.)
4. Once engine is at normal operational temperature, have another person
sit in the drive seat and bring the engine RPM up to around 1500.
5. Pull your PVC off (or brake Booster line) and start slowly sucking 1/3 of
the seafoam in through either of these locations. Be cautious & steady
handed, you don't want to stall the engine out.
6. Once you've sucked all of the 1/3 portion up turn the engine off &
replace pvc or brake Booster to its
7. Once engine is off, unscrew your Oil Filler cap & pour 1/3 of the
seafoam in as if it were oil.
8. Unscrew gas cap and put the remaining 1/3 seafoam in.
9. Leave the car alone for 15 minutes.
10. Come back to the car and start it up, let it idle for about 10-15
seconds and then BRING ENGINE RPMS TO A STEADY 2000-3000RPM for no more
than a couple minutes.
(major revving or fluctuation can knock carbon deposits loose so please
keep a steady foot)
11. Once this is complete, take your car for a 10-15 mile drive, while
doing so make sure to bring the engine through its total rev band spectrum
to make sure all the carbon deposits have been cleaned out.
12. Once the drive is complete, bring the car back home.
13. CHANGE YOUR OIL & FILTER & SPARKPLUGS WITH KNOWN GOOD OEM SPEC PARTS.
(The reasoning behind this is that the seafoam lowers the viscosity of your
oil, thus weakening its ability to control wear on your engines major
mating surfaces and your plugs get buggered up with carbon after this
tuneup due to the carbon coming loose during the tuneup.. So an Oil/Filter
change & Spark Plugs are a must after seafoaming is complete
14. Tune Up is complete!
355Nation - 2005 Chevy Colorado Throttle Body Cleaning
This is the before and after of the throttle body on my 2005 Chevy Colorado
3.5l. It was never cleaned with 149,800 miles, and this is the difference.
It idles way better, more performance. I cleaned it with a $5 can of
throttle body cleaner, and a microfiber cloth, it took me 15 minutes to do.
The only performance mod is a K&N intake.
Chevy Colorado SOA How-To
Short little video of my SOA (Spring Over Axle) conversion i did a year
ago. If you want a relatively cheap way to lift the rear 6" then i feel
this is the best way to go. No long shackles hanging down,no add a leafs,
and the best part of it is no more axle hop. This video basically sums up
how you can do it or at least how i did it.
How To Clean a Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF)
Here I demonstrate the simple steps involved with cleaning your mass
airflow sensor. In this particular case I was troubleshooting a rough idle
on a 2006 Chevy Colorado 3.5, but these steps can work for almost any
vehicle. If you have any questions feel free to post them and I will do my
best to help!
Here are some of the codes you might see related to your MAF:
P0100 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Malfunction
P0101 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance Problem
P0102 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input
P0103 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit High Input
P0104 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Intermittent
P0171 System too Lean (Bank 1)
P0172 System too Rich (Bank 1)
P0174 System too Lean (Bank 2)
P0175 System too Rich (Bank 2)
