Pierce Nebraska Lambrecht auto auction
Around 3,600 bidders from all 50 states and seven other countries got together for the Pierce Lambrecht auto auction which is over and nearly 500 cars, some of them even with less than 10 miles on the odometer, were sold off on the weekend of Sept. 28-29, 2013. Van Der Brink auctions had brought in $2.5 million in sales, after the Pierce Lambrecht auto auction got over.
The auction stanched from saving habits of Ray and Mildred Lambrecht, who ran an auto dealership in Pierce, Neb., for half a century and simply never got rid of the cars which didn’t sell. Instead of getting rid of those cars they parked them in a field, looking at those fields one can get a felling as someone is looking at the Field of Dreams. Few reports suggests that up to 10,000 of the curious and the Chevy faithful lurked the field, opening doors and crumpling underneath to have a glimpse at the frames.
The details of the auctions goes like this, the top seller of the auction was a 1958 Chevy Cameo pickup with 1.3 miles on it went for $140,000, another top seller was a 1958 Chevy Apache 31 pickup, with 5 miles on the odometer, went for $80,000. Going down the list there was a 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car, with only 4 miles under its V8 belt, brought $80,000 and a 1964 Impala, with a 327-CID V8 and a three-speed stick on the column, was sold for $75,000.
