In Pictures: Vintage cars for sale, some never driven

About 500 old cars and trucks will be sold soon at a two-day auction in Nebraska. Most of the cars are Chevrolet models that went unsold during a car dealership's five decades in business. About 50 of the cars have fewer than 20 miles on the odometer, and some are so rare that nobody has established a price, but they may fetch six-figure bids.
