These are hot right now.

I’ve only seen one episode of American Pickers, a show where two guys travel around trying to score junk they think is worth some money. I wasn’t too sure they knew what they were talking about, and this clip doesn’t help out. These are hot right now. This stuff is so collectable… …This was an expensive board back then. This board was probably 75 bucks.” Ha! Less than $50, and is that a re-issued Grabke? If so, it probably costs… $75. They shoulda hired Neil for that one.

– Thanks to Boy Ipoh for the tip.

    This aired months & months ago. This guy had tons of old shit. I suspect this was an original model considering the owner wasn’t a collector of new or reissue stuff.

    I know they know old motorcycle stuff; The guy that looks like a rat bought a couple of Pope M/C motors from my friend.

  5. Always liked this show, it’s all the good ‘mantiques’ found without having to actually bother to go look for them.

    I know the gal (and her late husband) that was featured here in Huntsville, AL who own a Keller Super Chief. Incredibly rare car. Her late husband was a cool old guy, exactly what you’d expect from an antique car owner. Smoked a pipe and had a handlebar mustache.

    This dude looks like Swiv. I wonder if he’s a tea-party nut too?
