If you watch the vids of it going in it looks like it was wrapped.. So who knows I hope the micro film in the glove box with the names of the contestants names on it survived.

On another note.. What were they thinking when the saved gas did they not have any idea that it wouldnt last.

Hunting pics now, but I watched it on TV. Boyd looked it over and said that "She needs to be left just as she is"

Rust had taken over everything, interior was a complete wreck. When they opened the trunk, all the supports along the sheetmetal dropped off, leaving a flimsy lid.

Edited with video link, its 41 minutes long FYI
