Dear GM & Nova Enthusiast,
Hey Gm family how is it going? As the holiday season approaches, be sure to ask your special one to get you one of our gift certificates by calling our parts hotline at 502-239-8487! Be sure to write that number down if you don't already have it on speed-dial! Go ahead and post-it on the fridge as well!
We recently returned from the SEMA show in Las Vegas! This show just keeps getting bigger and better! It was a real treat to be in a warm and sunny climate with the temperature around 80 in the middle of November! For this show, they pull out all the stops, spending tons of money. The best of the best is presented and I can't think of too many manufacturers that were absent. As you can see in the photos, there was a large variety of vehicles ranging from custom like you've never seen to pure stock. The floor plan was divided up so you can seek out your own interest directly or just walk and browse leisurely. I estimate that it would take at least a three-day walk to see it all!
Another big event, which occurred back in September, was the Lambrecht Chevrolet auction in Nebraska. The collection this family possessed was crazy! Rumor has it that the owner only liked to sell brand new Chevys, so when he took in a trade it was parked! Any unsold new cars were also shoved to the side in order to make way for the new. This left an insane amount of unsold cars piling up to form a historic collection. At this auction there were an estimated 15,000 in attendance and $2.8 million worth of Chevrolet classics were sold! The first 10 cars sold for $676,500 alone! Prices were high and this auction drew bidders from all around the world.
One thing that I recently learned was from two cars at the auction that still had their window stickers... as well as the carpet and hubcaps in the trunk? Evidently this is the way GM shipped the cars to the dealers. The carpet and hubcaps were installed as a part of the dealer prep before they hit the showroom. On the GM transport, the cars were covered in transit coating to protect their paint. During dealer prep this was removed by a specific GM approved cleaner (pictured to the right) which was also included with each car. Cool stuff!
This would have been a neat auction to attend indeed! Oh, and did I mention that the auction was in the middle of nowhere? (Our apologies if one of our readers just happens to live right beside that auction!) Check out some photos we were able to get of two cars that were sold at the auction.
