Rutledge Wood, the host of History Channel's Top Gear program, called the rural auction site a "Field of Dreams for cars".The collection belonged to Ray Lambrecht and his wife, Mildred, who ran the Lambrecht Chevrolet Co. dealership in downtown Pierce from 1946 until their retirement in 1996.Lambrecht rarely sold cars or pickups that were more than a year old, and he used holdover models as a kind of rainy-day fund. Unlike most dealers who lowered prices to move out-of-date inventory, he assumed the older cars would appreciate over time.
