Tulsa time capsule -- 50 year old case of Schlitz beer!

In 1957 in Tulsa a new 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Sport Coupe was buried as part of a "time capsule" to be opened in 2007. Not stated in the text at the site, but its mentioned in the video there -- the car was also fitted with a case of Schlitz beer and other assorted 57' vintage items. The car is nice of course, but a virgin case of vintage beer in steel cans? That is unheard of.
On June 15, 1957, a new gold and white 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Sport Coupe was buried in a time capsule in downtown Tulsa, OK. The time capsule was part of Golden Jubilee Week: Tulsa‘s celebration of Oklahoma‘s semi-centennial. The car is buried under the sidewalk in front of the Tulsa County Courthouse, approximately 100 feet north of the intersection of Sixth Street and Denver Avenue...
