Papa John getting his old car back (that he sold to support his family) is kinda cool, but I can't say the same for this one. I expect a better mid-life crisis out of Bezos!

what a waste of money, for a corroded piece of junk. Better off donating the money to a worthy chariety.

He should start a garbage co. and bill governments for picking it up.

Agreed. Those Stage One boosters can't be in great shape after falling 40 miles and then being in salt water for 40+ years. And ... so what if he does find them?
