One in a lifetime find of antique vehicles in excellent. Auction to be in September. Google Lambrecht Chevrolet Auction and feast your eyes on this. Unbelievable.
This is one of those things that you dream about, but can you imagine the fever pitch of the auction if this had been a Ford dealer?
I wonder what the sad story is behind those cars. It is usually someone dies, and the business is just padlocked, or it is family fighting over the estate for countless years.
On second thought, I guess not, here is the story.
I don't know why, but Yvette Van Der Brink gets a lot of these high profile auctions.
Yes, Steve, she does, and I (just like you) don't know why. Just to listen to her, doesn't give me the impression that she is a automotive expert.
They do not seem like the auction company that should be running this. Got that impression the second she started talking, sounded like Edith Bunker an real dingbat. But seeing all the hubcaps and parts piles on the new cars with a couple miles on them at the end shows they have clue what they are doing.
I have heard more negative comments on Yvette then good. When we picked up the t conversion tractor purchased on line, the owner talked to me. He didn't seem very happy and showed me how the "crew" had pulled the tractor sideways and broke the front spokes on one wheel. Then they had let the boom down on the radiator crushing it.
I see a couple of items I would like. I started thinking how much restoration it would take to revive a new old car. Anything rubber, gaskets, seals, everything. That with reputation of auctioneer, I am not going.
Yvette did a sale for me a few years back, she did great, I feel, we had buyers from all corners of the states, and some from Canada. No one is a perfect auctioneer, and u will always hear more negative comments than good, when ppl cant defend themselves, ive seen it on here even. she has a great following, and does a lot of advertising, which u need, theres a lot of smaller auctions that the local guys put on and u never hear about them, that's a disservice to the seller. I don't think she has a "crew" to set up the sale for the most part. I set mine up and know most of the others I have went to the owners have set theres up, or family have done it, it all depends on the auctioneer I guess. yes sometimes smaller stuff get lumped together and goes cheap, u cant please everyone the way a sale is run, and if theres a lot of stuff, u need to move along the fast moving a sale the more ppl bid, them sales that get drug out into the evening suck. but she can get the money, so it all depends if your buying or selling,I don't believe the auctioneer should know everything about everything, that's asking a bit much I think, its up to the buyer to know about what hes buying, or wants to buy, this is just my opinion. have a great day
I was at an auction once in NC. Local guy had a bunch of cars in the woods. Dean Kruze was there selling the cars. The seller didn't think he was getting a good deal about 30 minutes into the sale, so he pulled the plug and wouldn't allow anybody to pull the cars out that they had bought. Kruze looked around at us bidders and said to the seller: I don't know about you, but I'm getting my money....
