Seriously! : Over 500 'mint' barn finds

Vintage Chevy auction to deal in low-mileage gems

[qutoe]
PIERCE, Neb. (AP) Seventeen years have passed since Ray Lambrecht closed his Chevrolet dealership, a small-town operation in northeast Nebraska with a big and valuable secret.
For decades, the owner of the Lambrecht Chevrolet Co. in Pierce held on to new cars and trucks that didn't sell right away. He stashed them in warehouses, at his farm and in other spots around the town he worked in for 50 years.
Now, his automotive nest egg about 500 vintage cars and trucks will go on the auction block. Next month, visitors from at least a dozen countries and throughout the U.S. will converge on the 1,800-resident town, or bid online.

It will be fairly interesting to see what kind of prices these cars are going to go for. Restoration outfits are probably already gearing up for work.

Fascinating story this. If they averaged $15K each your looking at $7.5 Million
I hope some TV company has documented all this for posterity.
Thanks for sharing Granucci

Ya' know they could have a long running TV reality show buffing and re-selling all these and easily recoup their investment.
