American Pickers, Vol. 2
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
In small towns, and along America's back road, treasures are waiting to be uncovered - valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them - and turn rust to riches. American Pickers follows two of the most skilled "pickers" - Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz - as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoArt of the Deal||Mike and Frank comb through a master collector's untouched outbuildings in North Carolina. After getting past a few petrified hams they find a true gem, a 1950 Studebaker that Mike falls in love with. But can Mike negotiate a deal at a price that makes sense? Mike becomes obsessed with a 1934 pre-Airstream trailer and the negotiation becomes a classic in its own right. Then, hoping to sell a choice vintage sign, they pay a visit to friend and NASCAR champion Ryan Newman, who has a surprise of his own for the guys.||43:46||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|2||Closed CaptioningVideoBuddy's Booby Trap||Mike and Frank visit a local legend in North Carolina. After picking through an accumulation of school busses and a burned down storage house, they come across an item the guys have never seen before, place bets on what it actually is, and get surprised by what the appraiser says about it. Frank goes into picking-turbo-mode when he finds a gold mine of signs on a 20 acre farm.

Next, the guys meet Mary who has inherited a 300-acre property, home to a huge untouched collection. After warming up with a few impulse purchases, Mike and Frank get serious. Plus, while trying to convince the guys to take her on the road, Danielle leads them to an inconspicuous cement factory.

The next day, Johnny refers the guys to his collector neighbors. Junior's magnificent oilcan collection leaves Frank speechless, but unfortunately so do his sky-high prices.

I Love These Guys!
I love this show. The stuff they pick-up on their trek across the country is great, although by some standards it's considered just junk. Mike & Frank are such a hoot, & Danielle is so patient with them. (wtg D!) If you haven't watched this show or don't know what pickers are you're in for a real treat, & you'll be hooked on American Pickers!
26 NASCAR Challenge sync problem
Episode 26 freezes from 1:36 until 1:40 and it throws off the A/V sync for the entire episode. Please fix it!
The real history of the US
I love this show! The stuff they find tells so much about our country. I am was an American History major, this would have been a great class on 20th Century America. They dont just pick, they tell you some of the history behind what they are picking, so that makes it interesting for me.
