    Cars - A Time Capsule Story

    http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/0...-capsule-cars/


    A small-town Midwestern dealership in Pierce, Nebraska sold Chevrolets to local families and first-time buyers for 50 years until it’s husband and wife team finally closed their doors seventeen years ago. Since then, a staggering inventory of 500 surviving cars, new & used, have been stored away, undriven for decades. Some 50 cars “brand new” Chevrolets from the 1950s and 60s have less than 10 miles on the odometer.

    I saw this about a week ago, when they first decided to open the warehouse. there's an Anniversary Limited Edition Corvette (75 IIRC, or maybe 78) in there with something like 3 miles on it too.

    I'm not a Chevy fan, but wouldn't mind having that old Cameo truck.

    And just think, people who collect old advertising ephemera and memorabilia will go nuts here too.

    There was a story earlier in the year of a Corvette, brand new, I think about a '70 edition found in a storage garage in Orange County. Never titled, stickers on the window, o miles----it had been stolen from a dealership and the thief had hid it in a storage locker (like you see on 'Storage Wars') It's estimated that he paid about $70,000 to store it. The thing is probably worth a lot more than when it was new.

    My first 2 cars were a 1962 and a 1964 Chevy BelAir... Looked a lot like that blue and white ones.
