Big Bids and Bigger Crowds at Long-Awaited Lambrecht Auction

Большие ставки и большие толпы давно ожидавшегося аукциона Ламбрехта.

This 1958 Chevy Cameo pickup, with 1.3 miles on the odometer, sold for $140,000 at the Lambrecht Chevrolet auction in Pierce, Neb.

PIERCE, Neb. — It was early in the bidding, and the auctioneer was still warming her pitch, trying to stir up the crowd of thousands pressed against her mobile stage, a flatbed trailer in a soybean field.

Это было в начале торгов, и аукционер ещё разогревала торги, стараясь разбудить многотысячную толпу напротив её передвижной сценой, прицепа посреди соевого поля.

pitch - смола; вар; природный асфальт; пек; битумный пек; уклон, скат, наклон, покатость; напряжение, состояние; разговор

stir up - побуждать

flat-bed trailer, flat bed - прицеп с безбортовой платформой

Bidding on a 1964 Impala, a two-door hardtop with just four miles on the odometer, had stalled at $75,000.

Начальная цена двухдверной "Импалы" 1964 года, с жесткой крышей и всего с 4 милями на одометре, начиналась с 75000$.

The auctioneer, Yvette VanDerBrink, tried to nudge it higher.

Аукцуонер, Иветта ВанДерБринк, пыталась поднять её как можно выше.

nudge - ("толчок локтём") подталкивание

“Where are you guys going to find another one?” she asked.

"Где ещё вы, ребята, найдёте ещё одну такую же?" - спрашивала она

A bidder laughed and said, “Uh, how about right next to it?”

Участник торгов засмеялся и сказал: "Ха, как насчет той, что будет следующая?"

Indeed, the next car was a 1963 Impala, a two-door hardtop that had been driven just 11 miles. Ms. VanDerBrink sold it for $97,500.

И в самом дел, следующей машиной была двухдверная "Инпала" 1963 года с жестким верхом, которая проехала только 11 миль. Мисс ВанДерБринк продала её за 97500$.

And after that, two more Impalas, a pair of Bel Airs, three Corvairs. There were some 500 cars in all, most of them old, most of them American, many of them beloved by collectors and all of them part of the collection of a small-town Chevy dealer who refused, for decades, to sell his hundreds of trade-ins or the dozens of new models he liked to set aside.

И после этого, ещё 2 Импалы, пара Бел Эиров, Три Корвеира. Всего там было около 500 машин, большинство из них - старые, большинство из них - американские, некоторые их них любимы коллекционерами и все из них - часть коллекции автодилера "Шевроле", который десятилетиями отказывался продавать его сотни подержанных автомобилей, и дюжины новых моделей, которые ему нравилось оставлять на будущее.

About 500 vintage cars and trucks were up for auction over the weekend.

That is, until last weekend, when the highly publicized (and nationally televised) Lambrecht Chevrolet auction brought this town of 1,700 to a standstill.

То есть, до последних выходных, когда широко разрекламированный (и даже по национальному телевидению) аукцион Шавроле Ламбрехта привёл этот городок с населением в 1700 жителей к завершению истории.

that is - то есть

standstill - перерыв, остановка, пауза; простой бездействие, застой; мёртвая точка

Though there were no official counts, the sheriff’s office estimated that 13,000 people attended Friday’s preview and 15,000 made it to Ray Lambrecht’s farm on Saturday for the first of two days of bidding (after enduring a four-mile traffic jam through this no-stoplight town).

Хотя не было официального подсчета, офис шерифа оценил, что пятничный предосмотр посетило 13 тыс. человек, и 15 тыс сделали это на ферме Рэя Ламбрехта в субботу во время первого их двух дней торгов (после четырёхмильной пробки через этот городок, к котором даже светофоров нет.)

endure - вынести, вытерпеть; выдержать; длиться; продолжаться, тянуться

That’s 30 people for every Lambrecht car, and it meant long lines at the bid registration tent, portable toilets and funnel-cake trailer. In the afternoon, a family at the American Legion was comparing far-flung license plates (“I saw New York.” “I saw Maine.”) After most sales, Ms. VanDerBrink would announce the car’s destination: New Hampshire, Washington, Connecticut, Arizona, Texas or Australia.

Это по 30 человек на каждый автомобиль Ламбрехта, и это означало длинные очереди возле палатки, в которой производилась регистрация торгов, переносные туалеты и ларьки с едой. В обед семья из общества ветеранов Америки сравнивала широкий выбор лицензионных тарелок ("Я видел Нью-Йорк", "Я видел Майами"). После того как бОльшая часть автомобилей была продала, мисс ВанДарБринк объявляла, куда отправятся автомобили: Нью Хемпшир, Вашингтон, Коннектикут, Аризона, Техас, или Австралия.

mean - убогий, жалкий, захудалый, запущенный; средняя величина, среднее число; значить, означать

funnel - дымовая труба, дымоход; воронка; литник; наливать через воронку подниматься тонкой струйкой (о дыме сигарет, пороховом дыме); выходить через узкое отверстие; просачиваться, выходить наружу

funnel-cake - гугл выдал картинку чего-то вроде пиццы:

far-flung - широко раскинувшийся, обширный, широкий

Ms. VanDerBrink sold the most cherished Chevys first: A 1958 Cameo pickup with just over a mile on the odometer for $140,000; the ’78 Corvette for $80,000. The bids would drop as the percentage of rust rose: to four digits — then three — but the first 10 cars went for a total of $676,500. The auction house did not release a figure for total sales, but the number appeared to be about $3 million. Prices do not include the buyer’s premium.

Мисс ВанДерБринк продала самые интересные Шеви первыми: Камео-пикап 1958 года с чуть более чем 1 милей на одометре- за 140000$, Корветт 78 года - за 80000$. Цены падали в зависимости от того, как рос процент ржавчины: до 4 чисел - потом трёх, но первые 10 машин ушли за общую сумму в 676500$. Организаторы аукциона (аукционный дом) не представлял итоговую сумму продаж, но ожидалось, что она будет около 3 миллионов. Цены не включали комиссионные продавца.

cherished - заветный; желанный

The cars were far too expensive for Jorn Urberg Tveten, who flew from Norway as a 50th birthday present to himself.

Автомобили были слишком дороги для Джона Урберга Тветена, который прилетел из Норвегии, сделав себе такой подарок на 50-летие.

He said that at his home south of Oslo he had a 1941 Buick and a ’57 Dodge. Here, he had his eye on the new-old ’63 Impala. But it sold for $97,500, and he was happy he had bought a handful of Lambrecht Chevrolet giveaway yardsticks for $50 apiece.

Он сказал, что у него дома к югу от Осло есть Бьюик 1941 года и Додж 57-го. Здесь он положил глаз на "новую старую" Импалу 63-го. Но она была продана за 97500$, и он был счастлив купить пригоршню бесплатных линеек от "Ламбрехт Шевроле" за 50 долларов (видимо, Ламбрехт раздавал в качестве сувениров своим покупателям линейки. Или измерительные рулетки).

giveaway - ненамеренное) разоблачение тайны; предательство; проданное дешево; отданное даром

yardstick - измерительная линейка, рулетка; мерка; мерило; критерий

He was going to buy a Lambrecht pencil, but these, he said, were even bigger and better. “Just to have a memory,” he said.

Он намеревался купить карандаш Ламбрехта, но линейки были больше и лучше. "На память". - сказал он.

g.S.Дикие люди, эти коллекционеры. Казалось бы, какое-то ширпотребный шлак, которому больше полувека... да ещё с продавленной крышей... ан нет, кто-то отвалил 140 тыс вечнозелёных. А 50 лет назад - и даром, наверное, никому не было нужно: на рынок вышли новые грузовички.

Можно поздравить внуков Ламбрехтов: не каждый день на них ниоткуда сваливается 3 миллиона долларов. Старикам-то эти деньги уже ни к чему: им обоим за 90. А молодые (ну, им лет по 40 пока ещё, наверное) - и домики себе купят, и по машинке. По НОВОЙ машинке. С электроникой, бортовым компьютером и без ржавчины.

A 1957 Chevrolet gets unloaded for the Lambrecht Chevrolet auction in Pierce, Nebraska.

A Corvair gets unloaded for auction. It is one of the 500 "like new" classic cars to hit the auction block.

The classic Chevrolet Corvair gets trucked in for the auction, which is expected to attract between 10 and 12 thousand car lovers to the small Nebraska town.

Look at those tailfins! This 1957 Chevy from the Lambrecht Chevrolet dealership gets rolled off the moving truck.

Many of the cars up for auction were put in storage, leaving them in near-mint condition. Others, like this one in the foreground, were stored outside at the Lambrecht family farm.

This 1930s Chevrolet badge suggests that with a bit of TLC, these old rides could be like new again.

Rust takes over. Some cars haven't stood the test of time so well, like this 1955 model complete with dead weeds in its engine block.

She's a beauty! Even with a bit of wear and tear, this classic Buick still retains the classic feel of the car.

Set at the Lambrecht family farm in Pierce, Nebraska, this classic auto auction gets set up with hundreds of cars in various conditions.

Auction-goers will be able to peruse the line-up of classic cars, which almost looks like an apocalyptic car show.

Some of the "new" Chevrolets up for auction have ultra-low mileage. “It has been fun and amazing how people from all over the world are embracing the story of the Lambrecht collection,” said Yvette VanDerBrink, whose auction house is handling the sale.

This car features a 1960 Nebraska license plate, which appears to be completely rusted over, and an odometer boasting only 2,659 miles driven.

Lines of classic cars await their fate on the auction block.

With so many classic models, the Lambrecht family farm looks like it has been stuck in a time machine! Here, men survey the car line-up.

A 1958 truck with exactly 1 mile on the odometer...it just doesn't get more unique than the Lambrecht auto auction.

Classic cars as far as the eye can see! In the foreground, a Ford Victoria with license plates from 1960 looks like it has seen better days.

The Lambrecht auction will take place on September 28 and 29, featuring some cars that look like they've rolle dout of a time capsule...as well as some that look a bit more their age.

Some of the cars on auction have never been titled, still have plastic wrapping on their seats, and boast single-digit odometer readings.

These three 1959 Chevrolet Impala sedans look to be, well, right out of the 50s!

These Impalas still look stylish today, even if time has taken its toll.

1957 Chevroet. This once-in-a-lifetime auction features models ranging from the 1930s to the early 1980s, putting nearly 50 years worth of American automotive history on the block in one fell swoop.

This like-new 1958 Chevrolet Cameo truck is one of the favorites of Yvette VanDerBrink, whose auction house is running the sale. “They did not make very many of them and with 1 mile [on the odometer], that’s amazing. My dad was a collector of Chevrolets and I grew up with them and the hobby. It gets in your blood.”

Dealership owner Ray Lambrecht would put used trade-ins and unsold cars from the previous model year in storage when the latest models came in, leading to a serious stockpile.

Spare parts and original sales brochures wll also be up for sale for the more space-conscious buyers.

What was old is new again at the Lambrecht auto auction.

Estimates for how much the low-mileage vehicles will sell for are impossible, according to Yvette VanDerBrink, whose auction house is running the sale. "We cannot guess price – because there is no comparison. Anything that is well advertised with active bidding will bring what the market is [willing to pay] – we firmly believe that and work for our sellers. This is their lives and life’s work."

Classic bumper stickers "Please...USE YOUR ASH TRAY!" reads the bumper sticker on this 1957 Chevy, definitely helping to cement the exact era this car roamed the roads.

ASH TRAY - перельница. Ash - пепел, ясень; TRAY - лоток

When word of the auction went viral on the internet, rumors begant o pop up that the cars would be presold or that the auction would be cancelled altogether. VanDerBrink Auctions owner Yvette VanDerBrink refuted those claims as inaccurate and untrue.

Even cars that would have been fairly mundane when they first hit the market could bring in some serious dough at the auction, given their untouched nature.

This single-mile Chevy Cameo pick-up truck has been called one of "the belles of the ball" by VanDerBrink auctions owner Yvette VanDerBrink.

The story of these so-called "time capsule cars" has spread across the internet, leading to huge interest and a massive influx of enthusiasts expected in the Lambrecht's town of Pierce, Nebraska for the auction.
