It would have been great if the man who won the Buried Belvedere of Tulsa could have showed up in person to claim his rusty prize, but cancer claimed him back in the era of the Red Bird Firebird Esprit. Raymond Humbertson, whose 1957 prediction of the 2007 population of Tulsa was most accurate, was a career Marine and Korean War veteran who "moved around a lot" according to his nephew. The closest surviving relatives are his two elderly sisters in Maryland, who will likely become co-owners of the somewhat oxidized Plymouth.
