In the world of the Auction Hunters
you can't help but get excited by each and every storage auction. Every trip out to the playing field could very well yield an amazing find and an equally amazing amount of cash in your pocket. This week the Hunters ventured down to Anaheim. No, it's not just the land of Mickey Mouse anymore. In fact, more
than half of Anaheim Hills residents make over $100,000 a year! You know what that means: rich people with lots of extra cash to spend on fun play things. You gotta wonder what Ton and Allen found this week. Would it be their very own Magic Kingdom or more simply, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride?
MECHANICAL BULLSold For: $5,000
Breaking into the second room, there were a LOT of boxes to wade through, but that's not what they were interested in. The guys grabbed the room because of the open space in the back, and they had to work their butts off to get to it. As they finally cracked through to the other side, they discovered the room's hidden treasure: a mechanical bull
. Allen couldn't wait to get up on there and give her a ride. As he struggled onto the unique machine, he managed to hurt his, um, "pride" in the process. Perhaps such efforts are best left to the experts. The Hunters saddled into a honky tonk and had their rodeo expert give them an education on the bull. This El Toro model started off as a training tool, but after the popularity of a film like Urban Cowboy it quickly took off into a true piece of pop culture. Earning him a $1,000
with every second he could stay on the bucking bronco, Ton climbed aboard the bull. 1-2-3-4-5 seconds later, Ton got thrown off, but for five grand it was well worth the bruises.
Talk about a record breaking week for the Auctions Hunters. They spent a respectable $1,100
on two units. However, when you add up their sales and get a whopping $16,600
, your math equals a CRAZY $15,500
in pure profit. Forget Labor Day, these boys are back in business!
Think that you can master the mechanical bull? Then you better check out Ton's ride again and see just how hard it is. Head over to Spike.com for this week's episode "Rodeo Ton" now available online. Stay tuned to the Auction Hunters Facebook
