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.

That's a horrible analogy. You can drive an old car just like a new one. But, that old computer is completely useless.

I'd take any of these cars over any new car today.

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.
Damn.
I cannot even comprehend this line of thinking.

Pretty cool deal. Its a shame that the automakers have taken away alot of the small town dealerships away. But I can see how it was pretty easy for them to just stash the leftover new models out at the farm and start from scratch.

and you could never restore a car like that. To someone's earlier post.

Survivor cars are worth a ton.


Even of you could get all nos parts the could just wouldn't be the same.

New tires. Check the brakes, new belts and hoses and fluids and roll.

Save all the original replaced rubber.

I'd consider rolling with you if it works with my schedule. Once in a lifetime there.

All of those things other than "features" are overrated in my book. My '66 Impala rides smooth as hell, has fantastic performance and more than adequate handling. The only drawback is that it doesn't have any features like A/C (it's a convertible), nothing high tech or really "luxurious" like heated seats, etc. BUT the trade off is that I can repair damn near anything on it at anytime and anywhere. Hell I replaced a radiator hose and slapped some epoxy on a hole in a radiator fin while pulled over at a rest stop on the Kansas Turnpike once. Not something I would be nearly as comfortable doing with my Saab.

To me most midrange modern cars really haven't made enough tangible advances to make them a clear cut choice over a "classic" that I can fix myself if needed. Now if you have a car with a backup camera and assisted parking and all that jazz then I can see your point for sure.

What I'd give to have my 64 Impala SS back. That was the smoothest ride ever. No one was cramped in it, either The back seat was big enough to dance in. In fact, I did the horizontal bop with quite a few ladies in the back of that sweet ride.

It's too bad it was not a DeLorean dealership. I would like to have one of those.

the story is a little herky jerky. I don't see an inventory and the video only shows about 10 cars, and there is nothing to explain why the guy stored 500 cars. are they all stored inside? at first I thought most of them were new, but now I wonder if most were used. and was he putting one car back every year for 50 years, so some of them are from the 90's, or are they all older?
