1966 Chevelle SS396
Near Rock Springs, Wyoming several rail cars with late '70s Firebirds and other Pontiacs were were pushed into a hole and buried. I know several railroad signal guys that were there to put the track back in service. That used to be standard practice. These days they'll scrap the rail cars and the automobiles will be taken to an LKQ type place as has been stated.My Great Uncle was a Brakeman on the Southern Pacific. He told me a story of how a load of Hudsons was buried in the middle of Nevada somewhere after a derailment on the instructions of the insurance company. There were a couple of Hornets in the bunch, which as one of his favorite cars. He owned one for many years. He always talked about going "out there" to see if he could dig one up. They are probably in good shape in the desert soil...
