It looked like a nice car for ~5k to me. It was a driver and not 100% correct, while they didn't think they could make money I think they probably did.

That episode was a hoot, but those guys don't know a roadster from a coupe.

According to the way the show went, by the time they got the A home they had $7000.00 into it. But I figure they still had a $9000.00 to $10,000 car. Especially if either one of those 2 boobs have the mechanical abilities to make it run. I don't really care for those guys. I really can't put up with Frank. I might be able to take Mike. But I like the show because I get to see all the crazy stuff they pick up. As far as how they value it or all that I could care less. I seriously think they like to target some of the older people because they can take advantage of them. And I know if they came to my place I'd have to tell them they could look around but there's no way I could ever consider selling them anything. Except maybe that old '89 Mercury Cougar with 260,000 miles on it for around $20,000.00. I'd even let them keep the flat rotted tires that are on it. Hey Frank, Oh Frankie. C'mon Frank!

Oh man I forgot about them calling it a roadster. Now that was some funny stuff.

I would buy a car like that every day for $5000.00 If nothing else, it could be parted out for more than that. I also have a hard time watching the show. Those two guys are just a little too over the top for me.

Hey guys, it's not real, that why it's called a SHOW. Do you really think these guys just happen to drive a hundred miles and be the first one in the old barn in 40 years and the owners are will to sell to a strainger. You know the locals are onto this stuff and worry the crap out of people to buy.

If those guys weren't paid for the show, they'ld be broke. Their antics are fun to watch a couple of times, but cmon-they are more then a bit much! They know almost nothing.

Love when Pawn Stars have to cal in the "experts". What have those guys been doing all of their lives that they know nothing....?
