[GFS] Re: [FWDLK] WHY THE SPRINGS BROKE ON MISS BELVEDERE



That is a very false rumor. The car will not be cut up.

I have heard from two very reputable sources that '57 Heaven will be pursuing the car very heavily, and wishes to maintain it in "as-is" condition.

Over the years Miss Belvedere filled with water hundreds of times, the interior, the trunk and maybe even the gas tank which had a vented gas cap. The interior seats were like a sponge and when saturated they also were super heavy. Now when the water table drops the car which was submerged under water for a long time would retain the water inside it and in it's trunk and seats which was more weight than you can imagine. This cycle repeated over and over and over again for 50 years naturally broke the rear springs. Guess they should have buried one with the optional towing package to support the weight over the years.!!!! Did anybody hear the rumor that city of Tulsa want to buy the car back from the winner and chop it into little  tiny pieces and sell those pieces as souvenirs of the buried Tulsa Belvedere completely with a story and photos of the event?
