That's sad, really.

Nice iron going to waste. Wouldn't want to buy one and attempt to start her up, though.

But then again, I'm sure there are aficiandos who would scoop these cars up for their low miles and original state, and do a fine job in bringing them back to life.

It's shame that so much crud was allowed to build up on those vehicles. It makes you wonder how much permanent damage has occurred, and if any of them can be brought back up to snuff short of a major restoration ?

My guess is that there will be plenty of well heeled collectors lining up to buy the 10 mile and under examples, no doubt about it. The real shame is they would lose most of their value if actually driven or enjoyed.

Pretty cool. What's up with the top of that Chevy truck with 1 mile on it, is it damaged?

It certainly looks like something heavy fell on the roof at some point. I wonder if the color scheme for all of the cars are as ugly as on the truck and the Corvette pictured. If so, it may go some way in explaining why they remained unsold!

Wow! That's only 100 mi from me and only 30 mi from where I grew up. Might have to go check it out.

And they're smart people when picking the sale date - that's the bye weekend for NU football.
