SD Woman Auctions Off Rare Car Collection



Bookmark and Share

It's the stuff of urban legend; a small town auto dealer hoards away brand new cars for decade then one day locks up the shop, sealing these classics inside.

Inside the tiny town of Pierce, Nebraska could be one of the best kept secrets you'd never know about until now. If you drive along Main Street you're almost sure to miss it. Inside a flaking white facade lies a honey hole of horsepower.

Inside the Lambrecht Chevrolet Company, covered in a crust of decades old dust, sit relic roadsters of a bygone era waiting for their first owner.

"He didn't sell trade-ins or his leftover inventory. At the end of the 63 model year if you wanted to buy a 63 like the one back there, you couldn't buy it," said Yvette VanDerBrink.

So here they sit complete with their original window stickers.

"The plastic is still on the seats, “said VanDerBrink.

Many of the cars have just a few miles on their belt, factory oil in the crankcase, and gas in the tank. But these gems are just the tip of the iceberg. Outside town about a mile lies the land that time forgot. From the sporty, compact commuter, to the classic, crew cab, many of these vehicles have lived a long and useful life.

"Just the fact that we have 50 to 55 vehicles with less than 20 miles is very unusual, “said VanDerBrink.

But even though many of the vehicles are frozen in time, their price tag is anything but.

"We're not sure exactly sure how much they're going to sell for. I have an idea, but we'll see if I'm right, “said VanDerBrink.

But no doubt about it a good amount of green is only thing that will get you that pretty blue bow tie.

“Where else in 2013 can you, 40 years later, go buy a 63 Chevy brand new?, “said VanDerBrink.

VanDerBrink says the answer is in a small town off Main Street hidden in "the garage that time forgot."
