You may have heard about the Lambrecht Chevrolet collection in Pierce, Nebraska, a couple months ago. This amazing assortment of cars from the past six decades all went up for auction in September. The collection of nearly 500 cars gathered almost $2 million in winning bids, except for the 18 cars that were left unclaimed.

If you’re wondering what happened to the bidders, 14 of these cars were purchased by a man from New York. He claims a trucker he paid to pick up the cars stole his money and vanished. Another buyer died, a woman from Illinois was suddenly unreachable, and one man simply lied.

Now, bidders can get a second chance at owning a piece of history. Bidding is open online until midnight November 24. What are these remaining cars?

They range from a rusted-over 1947 Chevrolet Fleetmaster sedan to a 1963 Chevrolet Impala Convertible. Most of these cars were kept outside in a field and most do not run; however, there are a few gems, such a 1960 Chevrolet Corvair sedan with only 1.7 miles.

If you could own one of these remaining rare cars, which would you buy?
