The authors of the American Pickers television show found in the State of Massachusetts van International Harvester Metro in 1964, which at the beginning of the career rock band Aerosmith toured. According to the owner of the site, where they found the car, he bought the land already with the van, and the seller probably had somehow connected with Aerosmith.
The authenticity of the van was confirmed by the former member of Aerosmith Ray Tabano. According to the musician, more than 40 years have passed since the group used it. By car they drove from Boston to New Hampshire, where they earned $ 125. After filling, fare payment, food and hotel, each participant of the group has only three dollars left.
Leading the show American Pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz bought the car for 25 thousand dollars. What will be done with it until it is reported. Probably, the car will be restored to its original condition and sold at auction.
In October last year, the auction house Sotheby’s put up for sale a roadster BMW Z8, formerly owned by Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Jobs bought a roadster on the advice of former Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. In his opinion, the car, like Apple products, was a symbol of modern engineering and ergonomics.
