Skot, any chance you've got a '57 Schlitz recipe? You might even be able to compare it to the original.
Buried with the car were 10 gallons of gasoline — in case internal combustion engines became obsolete by 2007 — a case of beer, and the contents of a typical woman's handbag placed in the glove compartment: 14 bobby pins, a bottle of tranquilizers, a lipstick, a pack of gum, tissues, a pack of cigarettes, matches and $2.43.

If that purse included a .38 snub-nose revolver, a flask full (or in various stages thereof) of Johnny Walker and a collapsible drinking cup that could have been my Ma's purse back then! Ah...memories.

One of the local TV stations (here in Tulsa) had the "unveiling" of the car on TV and it was not pretty. At the time there was two feet of water in the vault, and from the water marks it looks like it has been completly submerged at several points in time. The car had quite a bit of rust all over, I am not sure if they know how much work it will take to salvage the car or even if its worth it.
"It's true, Hobbes, ignorance is bliss! Once you know things, you start seeing problems everywhere. And once you see problems, you feel like you ought to try to fix them. And fixing problems always seems to require personal change. And change means doing things that aren't fun! I say phooey to that! But if you're willfully stupid, you don't know any better, so you can keep doing whatever you like! The secret to happiness is short-term, stupid self-interest!" - Calvin
