What a waste of a perfectly good car.
Now it will probably wind up at Barrett-Jackson and bring a gazillion bucks.

All kidding aside,, in the late 60's - 70's it was common practice for the Railroads around here to bury cars that were part of a derailment/accident on the tracks..

I remember one that guys came back to town and said they were burying Mustangs that only had a few dents in them,, but the insurance company wanted them disposed of..

I like the fact that they buried some gas and some oil with it - just in case in the year 2007 that kind of stuff isnt around anymore, then we would still be able to take it for a drive. I bet the gas isnt usable anymore, if it hasnt already eaten through its container and got into the ground.

I guess they thought we'd be living like the jetsons by now...

Tranquillizers, cigarettes and unpaid parking tickets in the glove box... Not much has changed in 50 years.
