It’s hard not to get excited about an auction that features the old cars that you remember seeing or maybe even driving, cars in excellent condition for their age. Many like car auctions for the price, but it would be so cool to win the car that you loved when you were just a young driver, I would any way! For those who share my interest, here is the auction for you, featuring cars stored away for the past 17 years.
Ray and Mildred Lambrecht, now in their 90’s, retired years ago from their auto dealership, but they kept nearly 500 new and used vehicles from their inventory in storage in various buildings in Pierce, Nebraska. The collection includes 50 brand new Chevrolets from the 1950s and 1960s with less than 10 miles on the odometer. These cars bear none of the wear that would have come from being driven over the last 40 or 50 years, and now they are finally to be auctioned.
The auction is scheduled for September 28 and 29, this fall, at Vanderbrink Auctions in Pierce, Nebraska, and you may go to their site to see what they will be auctioning and for further information. Their site includes videos and photos, which are being regularly updated. The available vehicles include cars in great condition, others that are “project cars,” and some that are basically only good for parts.
I found a number of photos on the site where I originally found this story, too. My personal favorite was a 1959 Chevy Impala, a car I started driving when I was a senior in high school. Mine was blue, and my college buddies called it my “Winded Wonder!” Of course, it was a heavy beast, and the gas mileage would be atrocious. Still for the chance to drive one again, I’d be in Pierce, Nebraska, if I could for this auction.
Just watching the video on the site is fun, so go ahead and check it out. By they way, you can bid for vehicles on line, if you cannot get to Nebraska.
