The first customer of the show came in selling a Colt Patterson revolver prototype. Rick was very intrigued by the gun and a prototype would be worth a lot of money. Colt revolvers allowed people to concur the Wild West. Rick called in an expert to inspect the gun. Gun expert Jemison came in to look at the gun and he confirmed Rick’s suspicions about the lack of wear on the gun. Jemison’s opinion was that the gun was not real and there was no offer made. The guy was very disappointed.
Trivia of the show: What was the name of the building that housed Bugsy Siegel’s personal suites and offices? (Answer below)
The next guy had a 1955 GMC pickup truck to show the guys. Rick and the Old Man went to check it out. GMC introduced the first V-8 engine. The truck was beat up and needed a lot of work to be restored. The guy asked $10,000, but Rick was skeptical and called in his car expert Danny. Danny confirmed it was the rare version of the truck, but he had to drive it around the block. It was a bit scary to drive with fumes, bad steering, and a lot of shaking. Danny said the car was not worth buying because it just needed too much work for it to be profitable. The guy was not upset by the lack of an offer and drove it off the lot.
Another guy came in with a limited edition animation cell of “Tennessee Tuxedo”. One of the characters in the picture was Chumlee the Walrus, which is where Chum’s nickname originated. Tennessee was a penguin that lived in a zoo and tried to escape, but Chumlee always screwed it up. It only ran for 3 seasons, but it became a cult hit. The guy wanted $350, but Corey offered only $200, but because his best friend was Chumlee, he went to $250 to make the deal. Rick was not impressed with the cartoon because there was not a character representing him. The Old Man said he was just jealous. Corey had the character professor Whoopi input into the animation cell to represent Rick and it was very funny.
A guy brought in an appraisal book of the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. It was the third resort built in Las Vegas. Bugsy Siegel built the casino with luxury in mind.
