Chevrolet Auction saw lots of money being spent
|   Tuesday, October 08, 2013
Lambrecht Chevrolet auction turned out to be the greatest events that Chevrolet could ever experience. There were a lot of cars that were auctioned at this event. This was a plan from Ray Lambrecht to sell off his collection in future to raise money for a successful and prosperous future. This idea was there in his mind from a long time when he and his wife were running the company.

There were nearly 15,000 spectators who were present in this event held on "field of dreams".
People who love to collect cars came from across the globe to secure their choices in this auction. People came from across farthest places like Australia and Sweden. Nearly 500 cars were placed for auction on that field. It was only a few yards away from where they had been resting for years.

Best of the lot cars were sold first as they were in almost new condition. A Chevrolet Cameo Pick Up was sold for around $140,000. This was the highest bid among all cars. Second on the list was a Chevrolet Impala that wet for about $97,500and it was closely followed by a Chevrolet Apache Truck that went for $80,000.

Ray Lambrecht had said that he did not have enough space to secure all his collection. Some of his cars were kept in open fields where trees grew right through the cars. When he was in charge of the company he tried to give his customers something new every single time. He always retrieved inventory model of cars from previous years.

Not only that, he also kept all cars that he traded from his customers. This was his passion as he wanted to make his collection for a big auction in future. However his collection was found faulty as there were not enough models to support the 1970 and the 1980 era. Some of these cars were sold at very high prices.

As always there was a lack of cars in the heavy vehicle department. Some of the models were not to be found in the collection. The auction was open online as well as on spot. People could bid from any place across the world to get the car that they wanted from his collection. This was a major occasion for Lambrecht family.

Jeannie Lambrecht Stillwell who is the daughter of Ray Lambrecht was present at the event. She took time to speak to some of the press and media in order to explain the auction. She said it was the dream of her parents to have this auction.

She also stated that she had placed one of her own cars in this auction. She apologized on behalf of her parents who could not attend this auction. Her parents were currently in their mid 90's and had sent their wishes for success of this event. Lambrecht family was really happy to share their collection with the world.
