WE'RE ON OUR WAYTO THE FESS PARKER WINERY

TO MEET WITH DAN.

- HI, YOU GUYS.HOW YOU DOING?

- HE'S A SANTA BARBARA LOCAL

AND A COLLECTOROF NON-LETHAL WEAPONRY.

THIS GUY'S GONNA KNOWIF OUR GUN'S TRASH OR TREASURE.

WHEN IT COMES TO MID-CENTURY,I KNOW MY STUFF.

BUT THIS IS THE WRONG CENTURYFOR ME.

- OH, WOW.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

THIS--HOLY [bleep].

THIS IS AMAZING.

THIS IS A DAISY FIRST MODELAIR RIFLE.

THIS IS JUST A CLASSIC PIECEOF AMERICAN HISTORY

THAT YOU GOT HERE.

IT'S A SPRING-LOADED ACTION

THAT COMPRESSES AIR.

SO, WHEN YOU FIRE THE TRIGGERAND PULL IT,

IT JUST RELEASES THAT AIRIN A QUICK BURST.

IT REALLY IS JUSTLIKE THE HOLY GRAIL OF BB GUNS.

YOU CAN SEE "DAISY, 1889,PLYMOUTH, MICHIGAN."

SEE, ORIGINALLY,THE FOUNDER

OF THE PLYMOUTH WINDMILLCOMPANY,

THEY MADE IRON WINDMILLS,

CAME UP WITH AN IDEAFOR A WIREFRAME AIR GUN.

NOW THE PRESIDENT AT THE TIMELOVED THE IDEA

AND FIRED IT AND SAID,"WOW, THAT'S A DAISY."

THAT WAS A COLLOQUIALISMAT THE TIME

FOR "THAT'S REALLY COOL."

SO THE NAME STUCK,

AND THEY DECIDEDTO MANUFACTURE 'EM

AS A PROMOTIONAL ITEMTO GIVE AWAY WITH WINDMILLS.

- I CAN'T BELIEVETHAT THESE WERE ACTUALLY MADE

AS A PROMOTIONAL ITEM.

- THIS REALLY STARTEDTHE AIR GUN REVOLUTION.

- DOES IT ACTUALLY SHOOT A BB?

- ACTUALLY, WHAT THEYORIGINALLY SHOT WAS BIRDSHOT

FROM A SHOTGUN SHELL.

AND THE SIZE OF ITWAS BB.

THAT'S WHYTHEY GOT THE NAME BBs.

- WAS THIS THE FIRST ONE EVER?

- NO, THIS WAS NOTTHE FIRST ONE EVER.

AIR GUNS THEMSELVESHAVE ACTUALLY BEEN IN PRODUCTION

SINCE ABOUT THE 1700sIN EUROPE.

- WHAT DO YOU THINK THE VALUEOF THIS PARTICULAR GUN IS?

- THESE HAVE GONE AT AUCTIONFOR UPWARDS OF $10,000.

YEAH.LIKE I SAID, THIS IS

A CLASSIC PIECEOF AMERICAN HISTORY.

I'D SAY SOMEWHERE AROUND MAYBE20 OF THESE CURRENTLY EXIST.

- 1 OF 20?- ABSOLUTELY.

I CANNOT TELL YOUHOW MUCH I WANT

TO WALK AWAYWITH THIS THING TODAY.

- 10 GRAND WORTHOF WANT TO WALK AWAY WITH IT?

- NOT 10 GRAND WORTH.

IN THE CONDITION IT'S IN,AS LONG AS IT FIRES,

I'D SAY PROBABLYAROUND 7.5, 8 GRAND.

- I'M SCARED TO SELL YOU A GUN

THAT I MIGHT BE READING ABOUTFIVE YEARS FROM NOW,

HEARING THAT YOU SOLD ITFOR 20 GRAND.

- OKAY.I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT.

HOW'S THIS? IF THIS SHOOTSAND CAN BREAK A BOTTLE,

I'D BE WILLING TO GO AS HIGHAS 9,000 FOR THIS.

- AND IF IT DOESN'T SHOOT?

- HIGHEST I'LL GO--4,500.

- ALL RIGHT.

- ABSOLUTELY.

- AFTER WE SPENT ALL THAT MONEYAT THE AUCTION,

IT'S GOOD TO HEAR THAT GUN'SWORTH SOME SERIOUS CASH.

- YES, BUT PLEASE BREAKTHE BOTTLE.

OTHERWISE,WE'RE OUT 4,500 BUCKS.

- I GOT THIS ONE.

- NOT SO FAST.WE'RE STILL 3 GRAND IN THE HOLE,

AND THAT BOAT IS NOT COMINGBACK TO L.A. WITH US.

IF WE'RE GONNA SAVE THE DAY,

THAT THING BETTER FLOAT.

- AND TO FIND OUT,

WE'RE HEADING DOWN TO THE DOCKSTO MEET GORDON.

HE'S A LOCAL FISHERMANAND BOAT COLLECTOR.

HE'S THE LAST MAN STANDINGBETWEEN US

AND ULTIMATE VICTORY.

- LET'S SEE WHAT WE GOTUNDERNEATH IT.

CAN WE TAKE A PEEK?- YEAH.

- WOW, MAN.THIS IS UNREAL.

IT'S LIKE CHRISTMASALL OVER AGAIN.

- IT WAS A VERY EXPENSIVECHRISTMAS, THOUGH.

- THIS IS A LYMAN BOAT, MAN.

FROM 1955 TO 1957,THEY BUILT ABOUT 1,500

OF THESE 18-FOOT RUNABOUTS.

LYMANS CAME FROM THE 1860s.

THEY BEGAN MAKINGTHESE ROWBOATS AND SKIFFS.

AND THEN THEY JUST KEPT GOING.

THIS COMESFROM THE VIKINGS, MAN.

THIS IS THE WAYTHEY BUILT THEIR SHIPS.

THEY BUILT 'EMWITH THESE LAYERS.

IT'S A LOT STRONGER

WHEN IT'S LAYERED LIKE THAT.

CALLED LAPSTRAKE.

- THAT'S PRETTY COOL.

- THIS WAS ORIGINALLY MADE

FOR GREAT LAKES KIND OF FISHING

AND STUFF LIKE THAT.- OH, YEAH, YEAH.

- THAT'S WHY YOU HAVETHE PLUMB BOW.

YOU CAN SEEHOW IT CURVES IN HERE.

IT'S DESIGNED TO TAKETHE LAKE CHOP

AND TO CUT THROUGH IT.

- ALL THIS MODERN REFURBISHING,

IS THAT AN ISSUE FOR YOUOLD-TIMERS, OR IS IT AN ASSET?

- FIRST OF ALL, I DON'T LIKEBEING CALLED AN OLD-TIMER, BRO.

SECOND OF ALL,WHAT REMAINS TO BE SEEN

IS HOW WELL THIS THING'LL FLOAT

AND HOW WELL IT WILL DRIVEIN THE WATER.

- WHAT WOULD THIS BOATBE WORTH?

- I THINK YOU'RE LOOKINGAT 20 GRAND,

MAYBE 22 GRANDTO THE RIGHT BUYER.

- SO TELL ME, CAPTAIN QUINT,ARE YOU THE RIGHT BUYER?

- WELL, NOW I GET TO DOWHAT I DO REALLY BEST, TON.

NOW I'M GONNA LOOK FOR PROBLEMS.

I LOOK AT THE ENGINE.OOH, THAT'S A BIG BITE HERE.

YOU CAN SEE THE DAMAGE HERE.SOMETHING HAPPENED.

IT HIT A ROCK.

AND IT SEEMS TO ME

THAT YOUR BOTTOM NEEDSA SEVERE PAINTING.

UNTIL WE PUT IT IN THE WATERAND WE DRIVE IT A LITTLE BIT,

THAT'S REALLY GONNA SHOW MEWHAT KIND OF CONDITION

THE BOTTOM IS IN.

- WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE USRIGHT NOW TO BUY IT AS IT SITS?

- I'D BE LOOKING AT SOMEWHEREAROUND 12 OR 13 GRAND.

- NO WAY, SAILOR.THAT'S NOT HAPPENING.

13 IS A LOSER FOR US.15, WE COULD LET YOU RIDE OFF

INTO THE SUNSET ON THAT.

- 14.5.WE GO THROUGH THE WATER,

IT DRIVES GOOD,

IF IT PASSES THE WATER TEST,NO PROBLEM.

- DO WE HAVE TO DRIVE ITFULL-OUT?

- I THINK THAT WOULD BEPART OF THE TEST.

- I CAN LIVE WITH IT.- ALL RIGHT,

I THINK WE GOT A DEAL.- MM!

I LOVE IT HERE, MAN.

- NOW GIVE IT THE GAS.

GIVE IT THE GAS.LET'S GO. HIT IT.

ALL THE WAY.EVERYTHING YOU GOT.

YEAH, GO, BABY!GO, GO, GO!

- BOO-YAH!WHOO!

[laughs and whoops]

WELL, SHE DRIVES ALL RIGHT.

HOW'S SHE SITTING IN THE WATER?OKAY SO FAR?

- THIS IS A REALLY GOOD SIGN.

HERE'S THE MOMENTWE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR.

I GET TO POP A LOOK

AND DO THE WATER TEST.

OH, MY GOD.

IT'S DRY, DUDE.

- LOVE IT.- THIS BOAT IS TIGHT.
