‘American Pickers’ Discover Aerosmith’s Very First Tour Van
What a "Sweet Emotion" the American Pickers must have had once they realized they found Aerosmith's original tour van.
According to MassLive.com, the popular History Channel series came across this gem over in Chesterfield, out in western Massachusetts.
Just imagine randomly spotting the vehicle that once provided Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Ray Tabano, Brad Whitford, Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton the transportation that kick-started a Hall of Fame career? Insane!
I wonder if when the Pickers arrived on the property to investigate the van, do you think the property owner told them to "walk this way?" Ha.
For those who are unfamiliar with how the show works, there are two guys who travel across the country, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, in search of historic artifacts and rare finds that connect with America's history. Whether it's an antique gas pump or perhaps a rare autographed photo, these guys go to the ends of the Earth to do whatever it is they have to do to obtain these priceless items. Sometimes just locating something in general is difficult for them, but trust me when I say, these guys are good.
After all, they found Aerosmith's original touring van for goodness' sake. Think you can get any better than that? "Dream On!"
Not to worry if you don't have the History Channel or a Hulu account to actually view the episode, I'll hook you up with a little spoiler alert: Wolfe and Fritz were in fact able to find the original owner of the van, and claimed it for $25,000. A pretty sweet deal if you ask me, but maybe the owner wanted more and the Pickers said that's where they "Draw the Line?"
However, if you do get a chance to watch the episode, make sure you pay very close attention. Seriously, you "Don't Wanna Miss a Thing."
