The Lambrecht Chevrolet Company sold cars in Pierce, Nebraska for 50 years, and then owners Ray and Mildred Lambrecht retired in 1996. Only now are they disposing of the remaining inventory, which has been sitting untouched. Jeannie Lambrecht Stillwell tells the story behind these cars, of her parents and the dealership they nurtured for 50 years. The ending:
The decision to auction the inventory of Lambrecht Chevrolet Company was a difficult and painful one. The collection of over 500 true survivor vehicles comprise a lifetime of hard work, tears, and joy for both of my parents. The dealership today is a virtual time capsule that will be opened and all contents will be sold at auction. The inventory of the dealership’s vehicles includes many new cars with original MSO’s as well as hundreds of rare 50’s and 60’s Chevys ideal for restoration projects. Looking back at the history of Lambrecht Chevrolet, my parents have no regrets, and are proud of the thousands of new cars and trucks they sold to many generations of happy customers. They hope that these rare collectible vehicles will now be the source of joy and inspiration for car enthusiasts everywhere.
