I wonder how the VEGA's held up? Those things had rust on them on the showroom floors when new! LOL!

The auctioneer must be a friend of the family, he doesn't have too many auctions during the year.


Wanted: Nebraska advertising items Cushman, Dempster, Archer oil etc.

The weird thing is that all those "new" cars will have to be restored due to just sitting up all those years. You would be surprised how bad they can get just sitting there. Dave

Yea, but restorations will be an easy fix, no body work . Change out oils & filters and other fluids and seals and tires, and fuel pumps, wash & and wax. Looks like they would be a mechanics dream. Barn fresh finds, every collectors dream with low mileage.

Wonder if they had any Super Chevrolet signs put away or neon dealership or parts signs stashed. Like they said it was a time capsule.

That is a great story, most people can't hold out that long you know there had to be people asking about those cars over the years.

Down south they still rust from condensation and high humidity but being inside helps a lot.Those should for the most part be good, as you say, except for the seals, rubber, fluids, etc.Dave

It always amazes me that there are still collections of this type still out there. With the social media and all of the TV hype the last few years you would think some of these collectors with deep pockets would have got wind of these and made offers to buy them that these folks couldn't refuse. But, they seem to surface once in a while which gives us all hope that we will stumble on to one some day. As for restoring those cars, the trend has really changed in the last few years and I would almost bet that the majority of those undriven cars will never be restored, just cleaned up and put in a collection......GB

Restore? Are you nuts!

A car with 1-10 miles on it would be bought by someone who wouldn't restore it, they would surface clean it and that's all. The car becomes a time capsule of originality as you can buy plenty of these cars redone/restored but to see one as it came from the dealer tells the real story of what you got back in the day. Panel fit, paint flaws, etc.

I knew a local fellow that bought new corvettes, carried them home on his flatbed and put them up for storage. Sadly he passed away at the age of 65 and wasn't able to build the garage complex he wanted to house them in.

I know a guy who will be a bidder on the 1 mile Cameo Pickup truck in Sept.
If he wins it,he plans on cleaning it and leaving it alone.Then taking it to shows to show others how they originally were built.
