A ONCE IN A LIFETIME CAR AUCTION... A TIMECAPSULE COLLECTION OF BRAND NEW CARS FROM THE 50'S, 60'S & 70'S

HISTORY PRESENTS "HISTORY MADE NOW: WHEELS OF FORTUNE" PREMIERING SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 FROM 8PM - 11PM ET/PT

A ONE OF A KIND CAR COLLECTION UP FOR AUCTION FEATURING NEW ORIGINAL CARS FROM BYGONE ERAS

HOSTED BY BRIAN UNGER AND FEATURING TOP GEAR'S RUTLEDGE WOOD AND TANNER FOUST

New York, NY - September 17, 2013 - Car collectors from around the world are flocking to a small town in the heart of the Midwest for the chance of a lifetime. In a closed down family car dealership in Nebraska, the mother lode of classic cars - many having less than 10 miles on the odometer - are going up on the auction block. In the special presentation, HISTORY MADE NOW: WHEELS OF FORTUNE, premiering Saturday, September 28 from 8PM - 11PM ET/PT, HISTORY will have exclusive access to the collection and the auction. The special will be hosted by Brian Unger and feature TOP GEAR's Rutledge Wood and Tanner Foust

Amassed over five decades, this ultra-rare collection features 500 vintage vehicles with hard-to-find classics from the 50's, 60's and 70's. Dubbed "The Holy Grail of Collectors," the top collectable cars still have factory wrapped plastic seats and less than 10 miles on the odometer. This unprecedented auction is made possible by Ray and Mildred Lambrecht, a husband and wife team who ran the Lambrecht Chevrolet dealership for more than a half century. When their dealership closed in 1996, many of their cars were kept sealed right inside on the showroom floor. Now, they've decided to make their amazing time capsule collection of cars available to the public. Their entire lot will be offered in a live auction beginning Saturday, September 28 at the Lambrecht family farm in Pierce, NE.

Viewers will see the very best of this historic offering as HISTORY showcases the top cars in the collection as they go up for auction, including: a 1978 Chevrolet Indy Pace Car Corvette with only four miles, a 1958 Chevrolet Apache 31 Series Pickup with five miles, a 1958 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup with only two miles, a 1964 Chevrolet Impala two-door HT with only four miles and so much more.

Notable celebrities and thousands of enthusiasts are expected to be on hand. Brian Unger ("How The States Got Their Shapes") will host along with car aficionados Rutledge Wood and Tanner Foust who will offer expert commentary as HISTORY exclusively brings the best of the auction to viewers on the day it happens.

Lucky winners from the auction will own cars that are sure to be known as "Lambrecht Chevys" for years to come. The auction, presented by VanDerBrink Auctions (www.vanderbrinkauctions.com), will include live online bidding by Proxibid, ensuring that anyone in the world with an Internet connection can participate in this historic event by visiting www.proxibid.com/vanderbrink.

HISTORY MADE NOW: WHEELS OF FORTUNE is produced for HISTORY by Original Productions. Russ McCarroll serves as executive producer for HISTORY. Philip D. Segal, Jeff Conroy, Matt Bennett, Tim Mann and Cameron Glendenning are executive producers for Original Productions.
