Collection of barely driven vintage automobiles resurfaces

It’s not every single day of that you open the doors to a gigantic warehouse and find well over 500 vintage automobiles (cars and trucks alike) that have odometers reading double-digit or even single digit mileage. We’re talking about cars that stretch back some 50 years or so, classics in every sense of the word that could have just rolled off of the production line a day before.
However, that’s exactly what happened in Pierce, Nebraska just this past summer. The owner of Lambrecht Chevrolet (one of Nebraska’s largest Chevrolet dealers for nearly 30 years) had passed away, and his heirs finally decided to open up his warehouse to go through the estate.
What they saw rock into their very core.
Literally as far as the eye could see, vintage automobiles were tucked into almost every little corner of the warehouse – as well as across a number of other select locations (including a farm) – many of them would next to zero mileage on them and no previous owners.
A major auction is planned for later this summer where 500+ of these automobiles will be put on the auction block, expecting to draw classic car collectors from all corners of the globe.
