That was on the History Channel this past weekend.

Brand new 1958 Chevrolet Cameo pickup sold for about $130,000. Some of the trucks sold for lots of money, I recall one was about $30,000. Some even had snow damage where the roof caved in because they been sitting in a field since the 1960's.

One guy came and bought a car he traded in back in 1970ish (his first car) as it was kept and never sold. Others were looking for thier old rides as well. His daughters Corvair Monza that he gave her to use to go to school was he kept. I thought I heard them say he never sold any cars that he took on trade, keep them. A few had tree's growing up through them that would have to be cut down to move the vehicle.

A young lass flew all the way in from Austrailia to buy a used 57 Chevrolet. She had no idea how she was going to get it back but she wanted the car so bad so dropped everything and rushed to get there. She was very excited.

They interview his daughter and she mentioned she has one of the last cars from the dealership, a '96 red on red Camaro that her dad gave her that she will never sell. She said they always knew there would be an auction someday and now the time was right.

I guit watching and if I recall the take was over 1.5 million and the projected it could go past 2 million for the 490 cars and trucks, even several old wreckers, one a 1946.

The 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car..sold for about $90K if I recall correctly.

A brand new 1969 SS396 Chevelle with the roof caved in from snow, can't recall the selling price but it was more than you could but a fulled restored one for.
