500 "new" vintage cars to be sold at Nebraska auction

September 27, 2013

About 500 classic cars from the Lambrecht Chevrolet Dealership in Pierce, Nebraska will be sold at auction this weekend. When Ray Lambrecht, who ran the dealership with his wife Mildred for 50 years, would get in a new model  car he would put any unsold cars from the previous year into storage along with any trade-ins that remained at the dealership for too long. Many were stored outdoors on the farm. These leftover cars along with dealership memorabilia will all be offered to the highest bidders. Many of the cars have never been titled and have less than 20 miles on them. An estimated 10 to 12 thousand car enthusiasts from around the world are expected in Pierce, a town with a population of 1,700, for the event. Bidders from about a dozen countries have already started the bidding at Proxibid.com.
