Buried 57 Chevy
by Jim Stout
(La Porte, Texas)
I was working a shoreline area on Galveston Bay during a warm fall day this past 2010. Doing a slow sweep with the discriminator set to ignore beer tabs, I got a hit after about 30 minutes of work.
It took some digging but there she was, an original issue Hot Wheels 57 Chevy, Candy Apple Red, produced in the 60's when Hot Wheels were a new thing.
With some careful cleaning, she sits proudly in a display case. Total value, $5.00 U.S.
Oh I have found bigger things, like a door to some kind of crane, left that one in the dirt.
Peace and Grace.
