1957 Car Capsule
I thought that this piece might appeal to Tony.

On June 15th, 1957 city leaders in Tulsa celebrated Oklahoma's 50th birthday by burying a brand new car. A Plymouth Belvedere and some other odds and ends were
placed in a time capsule beside the county courthouse not to be opened until 2007. On Friday night that car will roll out.

Galen Culver went to see the preparations and talk to one family in Tahlequah who wouldn't miss this treasure hunt for anything. Undisturbed for almost fifty years diggers on Tuesday worked more like archeologist to make sure nothing went wrong with the treasure locked inside this big cement box. Already the curious are gathering.
