Kids Dig up A Buried Ferrari Car
Some kids were digging their compound in 1978 when they came across something big, something valuable, a buried Ferrari!
The family had just moved into the house and were doing the routine clean up when the kids bumped into the object, authorities were however called and the area was roped off before digging out the car.
After exhuming the Italian sports car, it was obvious that someone had planned on returning to retrieve the vehicle. It was very crudely mummified with towels in the vents and tape on many of the seams however the windows weren’t fully closed causing a lot of interior damage.
Farmers Insurance was contacted and because of the VIN number they traced the last owner. After the investigation, it turns out that the owner of the car had actually hired thieves to steal the car and dump it in the ocean so he could claim insurance on it. The thieves buried the car with the intention of returning to pick it up.
The buried Ferrari was then auctioned off after being on display with the incredible story being reported across the nation. It was purchased by a young mechanic who owned his own shop in California. The going price was estimated to be between $5,000 and $9,000.
He fully restored the buried Ferrari and often enters the car into car shows. Here are the pictures of the car after the complete restoration.
See beautiful pictures of the car after it was fully restored...
The car even has a vanity plate which reads “DUG UP”. How perfect is that?
