Pawn Stars: Excellent Wayne’s World Car! Party Time! (Season 14) | History


[ROCK MUSIC] A while back, I
bought the “Wayne’s World” car, the 1976 AMC Pacer. Shwing. [LAUGHS] How you doing? RICK: I gave it to
Bob to restore it, and I’m picking it up. I cannot wait to see this car. All right, you ready, Bob? Ready to party, guys? Sweet! [LAUGHS] CHUMLEE: Whoa. Dude, this is sweet. RICK: What do you think, son? It’s still the ugliest car
in the history of the world. RICK: I know– COREY: Bob, nothing on you,
but it’s still the ugliest car that was ever made. You have to appreciate–
it’s the “Wayne’s World” car. This is one of the most
iconic movie cars there is. Now, what all did you
have to do to this? Almost everything. It was like playing
whack-a-mole. Every time you’d
get something fixed, something else would break. So how easy was it to
find parts for this thing? Parts are almost
impossible to find. Nobody likes these cars. The tail light lenses
were $500 for the two of them, really ridiculous. So was there, like,
a store where you buy the licorice dispenser, or– That was actually
the original licorice dispenser from the movie. And they mounted it
through the roof. And it was so disgusting because
the rain just fell through it, and the dirt just laid in
the licorice dispenser. After about three
soakings in bleach, now, I would eat
licorice out of it. Most of the stuff,
we just redid. All new breaks. Completely new front
end, steering rack, fuel pump, power steering
pump, alternator, water pump. Gutted the whole interior,
and it got rat-infested. I took rats’ nests out of
everywhere in this interior. Cleaned it all up, cleaned
the floor, got new carpeting, did all the bodywork, built
new speaker boxes because they were all rotted out. COREY: So basically,
we’re the only people in the entire history
of the world to restore a rat-infested AMC Pacer. Probably. I don’t think there’s
too many around. [LAUGHS] So how much money do I owe you? BOB: $18,600. Woo! That’s a new car. [LAUGHTER] You think he’s crazy? I think he might go
in the record books. [LAUGHTER] So how much did
you spend on the car? RICK: I bought the
car for $9,500. COREY: So we’re just shy of
$30,000 into a AMC Pacer. Yes. And Corey, I’ll tell you– they get $15,000 for clones. I think the movie value
is there on this car. RICK: So I’m in the
car right at $28,000. I have no idea what
I can get out of it. But I think I could
make a lot of money because it’s that
iconic of a car. There’s at least licorice
in that thing, right? Oh, for 18 grand, I
threw in the licorice. CHUMLEE: Sweet. [LAUGHS] Well, thanks, Bob. I appreciate that much. Anytime. RICK: All right, let’s get
this thing out on the road. I would like to keep the car. But I’d rather keep my wife. So I think I’m gonna
have to sell the car. [LAUGHS] But before I
need to sell this car, there’s one thing I
need to do right now. And that’s take
the “Wayne’s World” car down the Las Vegas Strip. Shwing. [LAUGHS] [JAZZY SINGING] Well, what do you think, guys? Do you feel cool? Not at all. Hell, yeah, I do. All right, you gotta
admit you like the car. I love the car. COREY: And why does
it smell so bad? It doesn’t smell bad. It’s got that new car smell. COREY: I wouldn’t
call it that, but– You know what? Even though it’s– You get recognized
in this car. It’s a head turner. Oh, yeah, it’s a head turner. That’s for sure. COREY: Not by people
that I want to see. I don’t care what Corey says. This car has been a
lot of fun to drive, and we’ve been getting
a lot of looks. [HONKS] Whether they’re good
or not, I don’t know. Enjoy the ride or I’m gonna
turn around and drop you off. You can let me out right here. I’ll take a cab home. RICK: It’s cool. COREY: What is cool? RICK: This car. COREY: I’d rather drive
around in OJ’s Bronco. [LAUGHTER]
