    Here is the copy from that article.

    Source: http://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoram...160911547.html

    Lambrecht Chevrolet of Pierce, Neb., was like many Midwestern, small-town dealers — owned and operated by a family, with minimal overhead and little need for advertising since most customers were neighbors. Ray and Mildred Lambrecht ran the dealership with just one employee for 50 years before closing up, and later this year the Lambrechts will sell off a trove of 500-odd vehicles they've held onto over the decades — including roughly 50 with less than 10 miles on their odometers. It's less a car sale than a time capsule auction.

    While many of the cars in the Lambrecht collection were customer trade-ins that were left outside to rot, the Lambrechts would occasionally take something they couldn't sell and just put it in storage. City folk might find it unthinkable to leave so many vehicles lying around for so many years, but there's always more space in rural Nebraska, and the annual costs fall to zero quickly. I wouldn't call it hoarding, but I know many people who gather old metal like this do form an attachment to their kingdom of rust; every ride has a story, even when there's weeds growing around it. Jeannie Lambrecht Stillwell, the Lambrecht's daughter, says the decision to sell wasn't an easy one for her parents, and that the cars "comprise a lifetime of hard work, tears, and joy."

    Absolutely stunning, what a treasure trove of automobile history.
    They havent even mentioned the NOS parts stashed in the warehouse, any well stocked small town dealer is gonna have shelves of parts.
    Probably tons of original literature for sales advertisement too.
    Im sure the bidders will all be heavy hitters in the collector world.
    My wife and I started a company a few years ago that cleans out closed buisnesses, a place like this is a dream that can be the score of a lifetime. Surprisingly theres many buisnesses out there like this that are waiting for the owners to make the decision to finally liquidate.

    I just have a hard time believing that the tires on those card from the 50s and 60s are still original. I would have thought they would have been so dry rotted that they would have been flat.

    This auction is coming up soon. I forget when the exact date is, but all of the major news outlets like Fox and CNN are running stories on it.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Oh, I guess it's tomorrow.

    This weekend was specifically picked for the auction because there was no University of Nebraska football game scheduled: an important consideration for drawing a crowd in the Cornhusker State.
