Just saw an ad for the TV show "Down East Dickering" with a Bolens GT on it on January 14th. Don't know what they will do with it, but wanted to let you guys know. It's on the History channel.

I watched this show a few times. Listening to the team of Tony & Cod Fish, Tony's extreme accent drives me up the wall. I have friends from that area & I like to hear them speak but not Tony! So you guys listen for Tony  :wallbanging:

I saw that promo, as well. I'm looking forward to seeing that new episode. I find the show entertaining, too.

 

HANKG, dickering = haggling or negotiating, whether it's a bartering (trade) deal or a purchase.

It is a good entertaining show.  About as good as the Pickers.  I still like doing a little trading, bartering, or what ever you want to call it.  Just makes life a little more fun to live.

I have never seen the show but I am going to check our tv listing and setup the DVR to record it.

It's a lot of fun to watch, especially when it's about names and places in your own back yard.

I would call it "just following the pre-written script".    :(

I enjoy watching it. I put it on, as I know Amber can't stand them. The new guys this season, I do not care for, the twins. 

 

It's entertaining to say the least.

Just about all of these "reality" shows are scripted, at least to some degree. Reality is too boring, especially when you have to fit it all into a 1/2 to 1 hour episode.
