In late September, the owners drew 15,000 people and the "Top Gear" TV show to the small town in northeast Nebraska, where nearly 500 Chevrolets and other vehicles, most from the 1950s, '60s and '70s, were auctioned off to the tune of an estimated $2.8 million.
The vehicles were the unsold inventory of the dealership, which closed in 1996 after 50 years in business. The vintage cars attracted attention from as far away as Brazil, Thailand and Europe.
About 3,000 bidders showed up in person, and 3,000 more placed bids online.
Highlights included a 1958 Chevrolet Cameo pickup with 1.3 miles on the odometer that sold for $140,000 and a '78 Corvette with 4 miles that sold for $80,000. A 1977 Chevy Vega sold for $10,000.
