One of the best parts about working in a pawn shop is getting to see everyone’s hidden treasures. Between rare historical documents, antique weapons and strange artifacts, the job is never boring. No one recognizes this better than “Pawn Stars” guru Corey Harrison. He was practically raised in the bartering business.
When a man brings in a super clean 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago, Corey can’t help but get excited. And anyone would. The Italian sports car was gorgeous – sleek black and handcrafted leather. It also went 0 to 60 miles per hour in three seconds. Yes, three.
But, as always, with “Pawn Stars,” the deal always comes down to the price. Despite Lambo’s being luxury cars from the 1960s – and ideal status symbols – the price of the 2003 model was not over $85-90,000 dollars. This is according to the shop’s car expert, of course.
The man admitted he paid $111,000 for it. He was looking to get no less than $115,000. However, when he named his price, Corey said it was a no-go. Really wanting the car, the “Pawn Stars” guru upped his offer to $95,000. The man said he couldn’t let it go for less than $100,000. Despite the mere $5,000 difference, Corey decided not to make the deal. He needed insurance that the car would sell with a profit.
In the end, they just couldn’t make a deal. However, when Corey Harrison got to drive the car, he said it was an experience that will last a lifetime.
“Pawn Stars” Booted From Netflix
Like many of our favorite shows, earlier this summer, “Pawn Stars” was pulled from the Netflix streaming service. The move wasn’t given an explanation. However, Netflix is known for moving shows and movies around in order to bring in originals and other new shows.
So where can you watch your favorite negotiators? If you have the Hulu streaming service, you’re in luck. You can watch all seasons on this streaming service. Further, the show is still airing on the History Channel.
Even more, if you have subscriptions for Pluto TV, Discovery Plus, YouTube TV, Sling TV, and fuboTV, the show will also be available there.
With the longtime show still making waves in ratings, it’ll surely be on air for years to come. The main characters, Rick and Corey Harrison, along with Austin “Chumlee” Russell, love the educational aspect of the show.
“Honestly, when I look back 13 years ago, when this all started, I thought we’d be done by now. I thought, if anything, I would be off doing some dumb show of my own. But we’re still making ‘Pawn Stars,’ and I’m loving it. Every year is better than the year before,” Russell said.
