1940s Chevy Dealer re-opens to Auction off 500 Time Capsule Cars

http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/0...-capsule-cars/

Car collectors dream about finding a forgotten “new” classic car, discovered in a barn or warehouse somewhere, covered in dust. This is that dream, only 500 times better….



A small-town Midwestern dealership in Pierce, Nebraska sold Chevrolets to local families and first-time buyers for 50 years until it’s husband and wife team finally closed their doors seventeen years ago. Since then, a staggering inventory of 500 surviving cars, new & used, have been stored away, undriven for decades. Some 50 cars “brand new” Chevrolets from the 1950s and 60s have less than 10 miles on the odometer.



Ray and Mildred Lambrecht are now in their 90s and have made what is described by their daughter Jeannie, as a “a difficult and painful” decision, to liquidate the dealership’s massive inventory of ‘survivor vehicles’. On September 28th and 29th, 2013, VanDerBrink Auctions will have the honor of selling this incredible, once in a lifetime collection of American automotive history.

They must have been loaded to keep and store 500 cars that long. Crazy story.

That's pretty damn awesome, and I'm not even a huge car guy.

There's a lot more detail on the story in the link for those who are interested to read more.

The comfort, features, handling, performance and overall driving experience of recent models just about obliterates any desire on my part to own a classic.

Hell, even restoring wouldn't take much compared to the usual restoration job.

That's actually kind of funny coming from a guy who bought a bare-bones F150 and drove it for 27 years.

I don't breakout a TRS-80 to re-live an earlier computing experience.
If I had a polyester lime green leisure suit hanging in my closet, I wouldn't wear it on special days.
I don't have a shag carpeting room in my house.

Someone might love an old house, but if the owner has their preference it will likely have modern appliances, finishes, and furnishings.

I'm not saying some of the old rides aren't cool. But I could get my fix by just looking during a car show. Ownership is a different level of commitment that I have not desire to partake in.

Only 18 years.

I had a '70 Monte Carlo and a '76 Cutlass both of which I drove well after most of their peers and hit the junk yard. I guess I've burnt myself out on driving out of date cars.

I love my 2012 Mazda3 every day I drive it. It's nothing special in terms of luxury or performance, but is such a pleasure to drive compared to everything else i've ever driven.

That's fair. I judged a car show Saturday. The winner was a 68 Camaro the owner had about $90k in... The runner up had a 37 Ford in which he was nearly $70k deep. He was only asking $40k for it.
