Hey guys, Look who paid my 'mechanic' friend a visit today! Been holding on to this secret for over a week and today it came true.
The guys from the cable tv show on the History Channel
"American Pickers" were actually here in High Point,NC today, March 11,2010 !!

WOW! Great guys too! My friends parents,left him their Antique Shop, the dad just passed away at Christmas, his Mom passed about 5 years ago.
I had e-mailed them about a month ago, and asked since they were out and about to look for me a flag staff for the 'ole Skylark and had mentioned my frind's inheritence.
My friend mentioned to me about 2 weeks ago, Hey,Guess who called me. I told him, American Pickers, and his jaw dropped. He said how do you know they called me. I just grinned. But he said they were gonna be in touch. So he tells me Tuesday the 9th, that they're coming Thursday. I figured "they" wouldn't be here. But at 9 am this morning they pop out of an RV that was parked behind our work at CarQuest. His shop is next door to us and he rents a building beside of it just full of antiques.
Well they picked till noon, went to eat, then went to the parents house for 3 hours, then came back to his shop and started doing the 'interview' taping for the show and I walked over there.
Just minding my own business, not thinking I'd get to talk to them, Mike Wolfe does his little thing and then walks over to me and starts talking to me!
He asks me about my friend, Charlie, and the discussion leads to, well we found out about him in an e-mail someone sent them. I just smiled real big and he said- No Way! You sent that e-mail! I told him yes, and the next thing out of his mouth was- You've got a SWEET Boat!.
He remembered that e-mail from a month ago, just because of the SWEET Correct Craft. He says they're right next to the Mississippi, and he grew up loving the old wooden Chris Crafts and Correct Crafts!
He just couldn't believe that I was standing there of all people who turned them on to this particular 'Pick'

He said for me to call this number he gave me, ask for Danille, the girl we see on TV with them, leave her my contact numbers, because he has 2 Chrome Flag Staffs back at the shop in Iowa, and he'll personally send me pics of them to see if he has what I need, and then we'd deal from there. If not, he'll be sure and start looking for me when they're out 'Picking'

Man was I floored! Here's a couple of pics, and you'll notice the Race Car Body back there too! They said that was cool and would be nice for their shop! So that's how my day went!

Very cool Marty. My wife and I watch that all the time. We especially like it when they stop at the old farms out in the boonies with all the junk all over the place. Shop in High Point, huh? I hope to be in that area this summer. We just might just have to run up and do some browsing.

Marty....thats is AWESOME!! I recorded the series on my DVR after catching an episode one day. Came back Monday and there were 6 of em! I stayed up till 2 watching...I'm hooked!!!

I think I'll have to stop by their shop sometime since they're in Iowa. Maybe we can get them to deliver your flag staff to the Midwest reunion this year and do a feature on Correct Craft Fan!?

Your famous Marty! thats something. I liked the episode with the amusement park car ride. I come from a long line of "carnies",just several years ago my Dad finally sold his roller coaster.Most old amusement rides are very hard to get rid of.I agree with Joel,those are my favorite shows too.

The last pic,you'll see some Bicylces,with a motor on it, that they said was 'Killer' in the interview. No home runs they said but a 2nd visit was in store. They picked alot. I'll try and get a total from him and let ya'll know.
No I never got on 'their' camerea, but The History Channel was panning around at times and may have gotten me in there.
I'll try and let ya'll know about the episode airing.
Boy what a day!

My friend, Charlie, just came in the shop(CarQuest) to get a serpentine belt and I asked what the total was- He kinda grinned, I said over $1500 and he said yes. He told me another surprise-----
   They're coming back Tuesday!!!

As he went out the door he raised 2 fingers!

Pickers and Pawn Stars. If I'm channel surfing and hit either of those shows, it's all over, I'm locked in. Last week on Pawn Stars, Chumley was cleaning the warehouse. They found a bronze 14" Erte' statue that was pawned for $200. The old man said he took it in two years prior. It was valued at $4000-$7000. The weird thing was, the statue looked familiar. I then realized that my mom has the same statue. There were 500 of them made.

I watched Pawn Stars once, the old man was cool, as were the younger ones, but the bald headed guy came off as a douche to me.

The Pickers show was cool but I don't know anything about antiques.
it's only original once

Well at 9 am Tuesday the 16th, they're back for some more 'pickin'!
Charlie has 3 buildings and his parents house that is full of antiques.His parents brought a lot of stuff back from England and also Charlie's dad was a D-Day Soldier- he's got all kinds of guns and swords!

Eric, send me an e-mail so I can send you some pics on that car.
It's a Borgward Isabella Station Wagon. Got knobs on the door panel for the wing windows.

Borgward Isabella...thats a name you don't hear every day. I had to look it up.

Back to Pawn Stars...ever notice how its Chumley's job to test fire any vintage fire arm that hasn't been fired in a hundred years?

Hollywood: The bald headed guy is actully pretty funny. He gets a kick out of just about everything.

Things must be going pretty well for the Pickers if they've upgraded their plain white van for that vehicle!

They put him up in a glider last week, he'd make a good crash test dummy. Don't think he's good for too much else! About as useless as S&S aqua loggers!!! That one kills me, the guy even screams at his kid while he's underwater. I actually feel bad for that guy because he tries so hard but he's got to be a few cards short.

I don't think the pickers are getting rich but that pawn shop sure does some business.

Have fun tomorrow Marty!

Just like the Orange county chopper boys...they did 200 million in t-shirt and hat sales...great in the beggining, but a sell out in the end. same with Jesse James,
I watched the pickers last night and could see they were paying a touch to much for things. I guess there is a point when it goes from a reality show to just a plain TV show. why do i always see the darkside of things?
