Theyre going to re run the episode on the 28th according to the website show listing. Hopefully Dad will get the remote here that evening. Looks like the episode's title is "Tractors and Trucks"

I can't believe the cost of that resto! Totally ridiculous! It came out nice, but geez! I sure hope the TV people help pay the costs for the owner of the stuff they restore.

I agree on the cost. There have been a couple restored Bantams that sold for about two grand in the real world but WOW.
That Bantam was an heirloom, so its a whole different ballgame, but I don't see how Rick Harrison [Pawn Stars] expects to make a profit on any of the items he has restored for his store.
