Military Past, Military Cash

June 24, 2012
Ton and Allen took Auction Hunters to Arlington, VA, home to the pentagon, civil war collectibles, and antiques, antiques, antiques. How did our heroes fair against one of the biggest crowd of mean-looking competitors they've ever faced? Well, let's take a look:


Sold For: $5,000

There was one more unit to dig, and it definitely didn't fail to disappoint: there were some antique chairs, a Soviet military uniform, and a motorcycle. But wait, there's more! When Allen pulled the cover off this beast, he revealed a sidecar attached to the motorcycle. Oh, and the labels on it were also in Russian, which left Ton sort of scratching his head. Later, when the Auction Hunters arrived on the scene to meet with Jennifer, a vintage motorcycle collector and dealer, they were surprised to find out this was in fact a Soviet attack vehicle that would typically have machine guns slapped onto it. Yes, machine guns. To get a good sale price on the find, Ton and Allen rode the military motorcycle and sidecar into the sunset with it…and then came back. Jennifer finally agreed to pay a whopping $5,000 in cash for their sweet find. Congratulations, comrade!

If Ton and Allen were looking for unique antiques with a little flair, they definitely struck gold this week. The boys dropped $1,500 on two storage units, sold the items inside for $10,745, and returned home with $9,245 in pure profit. I wish every week could be a cannon and motorcycle week.

Even a cannon replica can do some serious damage. Check out this week's episode, "Sidecar Surprise", now available on Stop by the Auction Hunters Facebook page for news, updates, and more, and remember to catch all-new episodes of Auction Hunters airing Wednesdays at 9/8c on SPIKE.
