Watch out for this guy on ebay...

I saw this on Pawn Stars the other day...

Pawn Stars - Porsche Engine Mechanic Dispute - YouTube

Had to laugh that they were even considering buying it.

The belt rollers look like they have been stored in Sea Salt. I love how these pawn dudes negotiate though, everything you bring is crap and everything you wish to purchase is rare gold.

I've been to their pawn store in Las Vegas and met Cory and Chumlee (I saw Rick and the Old Man but did not talk to them). The store wasn't busy so Cory and Chum joked around with me for a little bit. Very nice guys.

Haven't seen that episode. Anyone know how the "owner" obtained the merchandise? Found it at a garage sale and the prev owner didn't know what it was?

He said he pulled it from a wrecking yard that he works in.

I saw that one...my thought was, it was most likely seized up. I would have gave him $500 as is.
