    Any one else she the show on right now (came on after Operation Repo) on Court TV, it's called Hardcore Pawn pretty good. I worked in a Pawn Shop, and this is really what happens. Much more realistic that Pawn stars.

    I like the pawn stars show... I notice they are starting to "act" more to make good TV but I guess all shows get like that eventually. I hate when they do these small interviews and you can tell they been told to say certain things or it's been rehearsed 10 times (american chopper)

    LOL...no kidding. Tonight I watched the Pawn Stars episode where Chumlee made the "wine." If you watch when they toast, as they are putting the glasses together the "wine" is cloudy, but they cut to a different angle and all of a sudden it's clear for the rest of the scene. Clearly, they changed the liquid to real wine.

    I still don't think that was an original cobra. It had too much of a modern frame and suspension. I think whoever bought it got ripped off by a replica.

    I would have told him to shove it and put it on a shelby forum and got the 60K or more, if it was real.

    Yeah I was watching one yesterday where a guy brought in a glass sword he had made himself.. A glass sword! and he thought it was the hottest thing since sliced bread and wanted a grand for it. They told him it was worthless and i dont blame em. Thing looked to dull to even cut butter.

    Ill check out the new Pawn shop show, i kind alike pawn stars, just for the randomness.


    funny part to me was that it was ( in regards to Glass sword)
    A- so damn ugly
    and
    B- NOT UNIQUE, they make glass swords and sell better looking ones at the Excalibur hotel.


    still a bad idea. :p




    People always think they have something worth a fist full of cash because its old and they watch antique roadshow. I'm a camera collector, i know cameras very well. Whenever i go to antique stores or pawn shops there are always overpriced junkers. There is no way your Argus brick from the 50's is worth $400. I have 4 i paid less than $20 for......

    I agree it could have been fake but... i'm not a cobra expert and it could have been a fame that never made it to a production car.

    I like Pawn Stars. The old man cracks me up especially when he calls his son and grandson little bastards. That man is old school cool.

    was hilarious when they hid the old man's Chrysler Imperial to get restored, and the dad was PISSED OFF asking wtf it was and they told him a lie that they sold it.
