In my opinion shows like American pickers and chasing classic cars hurt the hobby by inflating prices.

actually I've met Wayne Carinni several times and he is a great guy. His dad started out restoring Model A's and Wayne is a car guy through and through... no matter if it's an early Ford or one of the other more fancy makes. You can think what you want but the visibility and interest the shows draw of the quality ones ( not the chop em up variety) really help promote the old cars and probably do more to get people interested than chasing them away. Wayne didn't know me from adam but spend time chatting with me for some time. I give him and A+.

ditto..... He's the best part of the show besides the Classic cars. And I mean real classic cars: Cadillacs, Lincolns, Peirce-Arrows, Packards etc.

When watching TV, just throw "REALITY" out the window. Ever watch James Bond, 007??? CRAZY, but LOTS of FUN! "Sometimes" he sleeps with the ENEMY, if she's got a GREAT BODY!!

You can find the episodes on YouTube. Just type in Chasing Classic Cars in the search function.
