Old Car Auction Nebraska
This family photo which was provided by Jeannie Stillwell, daughter of Ray Lambrecht of the Lambrecht Chevrolet car company in Pierce, Neb., shows Mildred Lambrecht, wife of Ray, and their son Mark in a brand new 1953 Corvette, in front of the dealership. In September 2013, bidders from at least a dozen countries and all 50 U.S. states will converge on Pierce, a town of about 1,800 in northeast Nebraska, for a two-day auction that will feature about 500 old cars and trucks, mostly Chevrolets that went unsold during the dealership’s five decades in business. About 50 have fewer than 20 miles on the odometer, and some are so rare that no one has established a price. The most valuable could fetch six-figure bids. (AP Photo/Jeannie Stillwell Family)
