Thirty “New” Old Chevys And 500 Others Accumulated By Closed Dealer To Be Auctioned Off

dealership  -Ray-Mildred-granddaughter-Kara

You may (or not) already have read about this elsewhere: a small Nebraska Chevrolet dealer that was owned and operated by the same couple for fifty years (closed in 1996) finally gets around to selling its hoard of cars: some 30 “new” ones, including a 1958 Cameo with less than ten miles to a 1984 Cavalier with 24 miles. The cars (list follows) are quite the time capsule, but the full story behind them all is heartwarming too.

Dealer Cameo

Looks like the Cameo is a bit worse for wear despite its ten miles on the odometer.  It does seem a bit odd that so many new cars were left to molder like this, but like so many things in life, it was probably a case of “I meant to get to them one of theses days…”
