Have you seen the April Roundel magazine. One of the editorials refers to a friend in Afganistan that was perusing a cave and stumbled on a bunch of brand new Bimmers from the 70's (2002's and stuff) that were apparently hidden there when the Soviets came in. All had batteries and stuff removed as if for long term storage and all tires were flat. It looked like maybe the owner was the only one who knew thay were there and something happend to him that he couldn't come back. I know it sounds like an urban myth kind of thing but if you read the story in Roundel, it looks believable.

So you find anything at all interesting over there in IRAQ ?

so who would get to keep the bimmers if that guy found them. That would be so cool to have a brand new bimmer from the 70's.

No, if you get Roundel, you would see they later had to bunker buster that mountain and while the cars are possibly alright inside there, the entrance is sealed. It was a good article. If I get time I'll type it up
