F N Loud....are you kidding me?

Don't know if you guys watched this episode tonight. 72 puke Green Mustang from the show is on ebay for over 100k now. The boss sold for 160K at Barrett Jackson auction! There about to make close to that on this 72 (not so special) mustang classic. Wish I could make money that easy. smh

Great show by the way.

I am just upset that it canceled my recording on top gear.. which i was able to catch for the last hour of the show only to be disappointed by how obviously fake the show has gotten... its always been fake but it used to be believable.

I looked too, couldn't believe it is now over $107,000! That is just crazy, I don't get it. Always an entertaining show. I need to go over and check out the bar.

In the show, Rawlins clearly says he think it would be good for a kid in high school to look cool in. So I clicked on site to see what it would sell for15-19k. The price is now way above the very rare boss that sold at the auction on the same episode.

I love the Asian woman that does interiors for him. She always calls him the "Ass Monkey." Wonder if she has some "inside" information about his sexual proclivities.

The 200k and 100k bidders all retracted or canceled. Sold for 51K.....still over priced. Too weird.

$20K was overpriced. Amazing what the power of television promotion can do.

I think what those guys do to cars is a sin. I Like Counting Cars much better, Danny is a real car guy. Wheeler Dealers is a great show too on Velocity. Takes place in the UK. They restore some great cars.
