A new single engine prop plane would cost that much. If you compare 2 seat single engine planes, they run around $30k depending on time left on the components. And the majority of those planes will be over 30 years old.

$200k for a 20 year old Soviet designed training jet is accurate. And in answer to a previous poster, the fighter pilot probably took about a 15 minute look at the documents and then a 30 minute walk around before he hopped in. Rick was completely off base calling a 20 year old plane scary. It's just gotten past adolescence.

I know that there is not really much doubt that the show is scripted / staged, but I thought that having an episode of Pawn Stars with a potential item owned by the Hatfield family just before the premiere of the Hatfield & McCoy miniseries was a little obvious.

And when they told him no, he suddenly remembered that 'Cap' had carved his name in the metal. Yeah. You would lead with that information.

Ehhh, I figured that came in some time ago, and they held it back until right before the show. American Pickers did the same thing, with finding Hatfield/McCoy products. It's nothing new for History.

It does fit into their whole 'History Everyday' thing with showing the actual items and their importance/value today.

The American Pickers "bit" did actually give me some good history that helped with the Hatfield/McCoy mini series.

I was in Vegas earlier this week and had extra time so I went to Gold and Silver Pawn. While I was there they announced they would be closing in 15 minutes so they could film a segment. They picked a family to stay and be extras. None of the "stars" were working when I was there, the place was packed with tourists.

I was watching the old Dave Attell show Insomniac, and he went to Vegas in 2003 and into the pawn shop.

Rick looks so different back then.

Here is the video:

Great clip. Loved that show.

Interesting that Rick was working the late shift. Wonder if he just did that because of the show.

Just caught a massive airing of like 10 episodes on H. Was entertaining. I can't believe some of the stuff that gets pawned. That Shelby frame that the guy was paid to tow was awesome! I can't believe that someone stashed that in a locker and then let the locker go. Sounds like a crossover between Storage Wars and Pawn Stars is in order.

In my opinion it was a set-up, advertising for the local Shelby shop, I don't believe that was a 196X Shelby, but a 20xx Shelby officially licensed car.

It did look pretty darn new. There was hardly any wear on it.

Rick and Corey Harrison went camping in Glamis, CA over Thanksgiving weekend with some friends and left the place a mess - specifically beer cans, garbage and a bbq grill ... enough to fill up 10 trash bags.

Rick and Corey say it was their friends, not them:

Are they now adding phoney story lines to every episode? Last night Cory steals Ricks lunch for a week in one episode and takes the Hot Rod for a joy ride when a potential buyer shows up. He Rick Cory more than likely has a cell phone why not trying to call him to get him back to the shop?

I thought same thing and the lame will they make him a partner thing EWWWW I wonder if they will. I used to like the show, is played now should be cancelled but will go on like the Simpsons. As it goes on they all get more unlikable especially Corey.

I can't say I like their "Cold open" now instead of just getting to the merch.

They can't act and it's really stiff. The old man hiding buckets full of pennies? Really? I don't buy that for a minute. He'd have them at his house somewhere safe.

And the sandwich thing and car borrowing just make Corey look like a doosh. It's not remotely funny.

This.

And when the 'customer' got agitated and asked Rick to call Cory, Rick kept saying 'ummm, ummm' and never did.

I love the show, and don't know why the network/producers think it is necessary to create fake drama.

The heavy customer that was selling the Marilyn Manson Celebrity Deathmatch doll was Big Mike, a customer that appears on American Restoration from time to time. I think he got the 'tv bug' after being on once and shows up again and again with things on A.R. Looks like he is moving over to the pawn shop now.

This show just dropped off my Season Pass this week. I just don't care what happens to those guys any more, they are very unsympathetic. I was entertained when it was purely about the items brought in, but when they started with the interpersonal conflicts, etc., I started losing interest.

Seems like that is the formula for a lot of shows. The first couple of seasons are more "pure" then around the 3rd season the producers start making up crap or start bringing in fake characters.

I don't know why shows mess with success. Just show me an interesting item, tell me something interesting about it and move on to the next item and I'm quite happy.

Rick was on The Middle a few weeks ago. Playing a pawn shop owner in Indiana.
