SOUNDBITE (English) Rutledge Wood / Host of History Channel's "Top Gear": "there are so many cars here of different makes and years with so few miles on some of them. There's a '57 chevy 210 four-door with 47-thousand miles that looks like it's been through hell and back. On the inside, it's pristine. It's just - the cars that are here are so wild, I think people just wanted to show up. It's like 'Field of Dreams' for cars."STORYLINE: Bidders and car buffs from around the world are converging on the northeast Nebraska town of Pierce for a weekend auction of vintage Chevrolets, including 50 that have fewer than 20 miles on the odometer. 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 Unlike most dealers who lowered prices to move out-of-date inventory, he assumed the older cars would appreciate over time.
