I like the show. The thing that surprised me is how much they'd pay to fix things up to increase their sale price. The coke machine, gas pump, barber chair, Shelby Cobra and boat had substantial money added in addition to the purchase price to make them more valuable. So these guys aren't just buying low and selling high, they're investing the extra money to make more money in the end. I like that when they have the experts come in for a consult they they're doing it in front of the person who wants to sell the item. They could conceivably find out the value then really lowball the seller who didn't hear the value. Some customers feel like they are being lowballed, but they don't usually understand the difference between the highest auction price and a wholesale price. The only one that I'm sure bummed out the seller when he saw it on TV was the ship's chronometer. They brought it in and sold it as non-running, but the clock expert pulled out the bits of cardboard used to secure it in transport and found it working perfectly and worth quite a bit more than what the shop bought it for. I wonder how many people bring an item in, get the expert evaluation, then reject the wholesale offer only to go straight to selling it on Ebay with all the new information they learned put in the item's description.
