Tens of thousands of people were in Pierce, Nebraska on Saturday for what most would agree is a once in a lifetime event.
"This has taken on a life of its own," Auctioneer Yvette VanDerBrink said, "it's just amazing."
The Lambrecht Chevy Auction, consisting of 500 vintage Chevrolet's dating back to the 1950's, brought in car junkies from all over the globe.
"It's a history making event," visitor Joseph Kuchar said. "This will never happen again."
Some came for the fame. Others came for the name.
"I really like Chevys," Oklahoman Robert Allen said.
The real draw is that many of these vehicles have less than 20 miles on the odometer.
"I like to go see one," Allen said, "but if you have 500 then it's a big deal."
Not all of them will sell for $140,000 like the 1958 Chevy Cameo pickup. What some car junkies see as vintage, others see as, well, junk.
"They're really in pretty bad shape," Allen said, "but they make good parts for cars."
For those that couldn't make it to the auction in person, they could bid for their dream cars online.
"We have over 3,000 registered bidders," Proxibid CEO Ryan Downs said. "So far about 34 percent of the auction has actually sold to online bidders."
As far as the online experience versus the on-site experience...
"It is pretty exciting," Downs said, "because you really feel the competition as the bid runs up."
Online or on-site, this auction is one that will be remembered for quite some time.
"It's just a rare opportunity," VanDerBrink said.
