'Pawn Stars' - Another spin-off coming - 'Counting Cars'

It was only a matter of time. Danny, the 'car guy' that Pawn Stars calls for his expert opinions on cars and motorcycles is getting his own show.

I'm tempted to give this a look but it'll probably be like American Restoration; with little about the craft.

Of course - they can't give away their secrets and have to compete against every two-bit intent on making bucks by screwing customers and giving them all a bad name.

That dude's sure gotten a lot of reality gigs. I recall he was around a lot back when Choppers and Hot Rods were hot a few years ago. I think he was on Biker Build Off once too.

I'm going to pass - never really liked the guy that much. Don't think I want to watch him for 30 minutes.

Speaking of Pawn Stars, what ever happened to their gun expert? They've had a new guy lately that hasn't been nearly as entertaining.

Edit: Google knows all. http://basilthecatjewelry.blogspot.c...awn-stars.html

Shame we won't be seeing him again.

Interesting...I had been wondering the same thing. I'm going to copy your post in the Pawn Stars thread.

I like the toy guy surprised he didn't get a show. Imagine the kind of people that come in any large toy/comic book store anywhere much less in Vegas.

I think 'Comic Book Men' on AMC beat them to it. At least in concept.

Definitely, I hate it when it looks like they are going to get her in but instead the document/autograph guy.

Similar concept, but I think History could do a similar show with a different twist. And the tou guys deals with all toys. The comic book guys are comic books, or toys related to comic books. More smaller focus.

They had different car guy in earlier episodes (obviously who they had really been going to for years) he probably refused to sign agreement too.

Something tells me following Mark around a museum all day would not be very exciting.

I watched the first episode tonight an enjoyed it. It did not stray too far from the Pawn Stars, American Restoration formula. It definitely had less (and by less I mean none) of the staged Drama/Confilct between the employees of the shop and that is a good thing.

It really has more in common with American Restoration in that they had two projects and the 20 minute running time of the show means you see little if any of the actual work. Last night they did a great custom paint job on a bike and restored the car Rick had just purchased on Pawn Stars.

He had a test show some time back. It was entertaining. I setup a SP.

Personally I wasn't a fan of the first episode. That whole initial bit with them driving around car hunting bothered me for some reason.

The tatoo bike paint job was impressive, but it went from zero to painted without any real screen time. Same deal with the mustang. Love what they did with it, but beyond a minute of finding out how bad the interior was, we didn't see anything.

(But that's been my issue with American Restoration for a while now. They've been downplaying or hiding the actual work; which is what I'd prefer to see)

I'll probably give this another episode, but I'm thinking it's probably not the show for me.

Oops. Forgot to setup the SP. I have one now and I'll let you guys know what I think. Certainly sounds like something I'd like.

Agreed, just like AR I'd like to see more of the actual work.
