Buried for 50 years, £10 says its rotten as!

Not sure if anyone else has heard about this, but I think it's pretty cool.

Basically a Plymouth was buried 50 years ago (Tomorrow), as part of a time capsule thingy with some personal belongings of a few town-members, and it's already being slowly unveiled for it's big revealing tomorrow.

A few pictures show it's not looking good for it's state, the roof looks like it's kind of caved it, maybe it's rotted? Maybe it's mint. Who knows?

Burial in 1957

Rest of the pictures are here

Can't wait to see how it's fared underground, hope all the stuff inside hasn't been destroyed..

Too much water me thinks. It's the same with any time capsule that has been buried, if water gets in .... it rots. The hole looks like it was not waterproofed.

I remember the Blue Peter one being opened and it was full of horrible looking muddy water and as a result everything inside was rotten.

Ohh, I read the story about that a year or two ago. Had forgotten all about it. Interesting to see what it's like when they bring it up.

Lol...it's not exactly 'time team' is it? The bloke who planted it is probably still alive! He's probably gutted! He could have stuck it in his shed and kept it in much better nick.
Can you imagine lord ponsonby in the 50's with his classic DB4 aston. You can;

A: Keep it in the family and cherish it so that in 50 years time your children can enjoy such a fine achievement
B: Bury the f*cking thing in the ground so that it rots to pieces, only to be dug up not long after with people wondering why on earth you did it in the first place?


If it was an aztec ruin it would be different but the fact that there are photos from merely 'yesterday' it's utterly pointless. Lets see what happens when we bury a car....oh look...it gets ruined lol.
