Classic car graveyard is becoming a hot bed for rebirth

It used to be impossible to jump from town to town in America without coming across a number of junkyards in landfills just teeming with vintage automobiles. But as technology has improved (and awareness in regards to the environmental impact of these locations has become more widespread), many of these classic sites have disappeared from the American landscape altogether.
However, nothing could be further from the truth in a small town in Nebraska.
Boasting one of the largest inventories of vintage automobiles – some of them going all the way back to the early 1950s (with single-digit or double digit odometer readings, all original) – local car dealer legend Ray Lembrecht establish this classic car graveyard in just a few short years ago.
After nearly 50 years of working in the automobile business, Ray is hanging up his spikes forever – in deciding to auction off all of the vehicles he’s kept in storage (both in the fields as well as in his barns). With well over 500 vehicles on the auction block – including the vehicles that look like they just slipped off of the factory floor 50 years ago – and this is going to be an exciting and interesting time for anyone serious about classic automobiles.
