'American Pickers' Discover Areosmith's Van In Mass. Woods

'American Pickers' discover Aerosmith's van from 1970s in Massachusetts woods

The stars of History Channel's “American Pickers” never expected to come across a hunk of rock and roll history, specifically a piece of Aerosmith’s history, while filming their hit show.

 
 

Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz of “American Pickers” were astonished to find the dilapidated vanduring filming in Chesterfield, a town about 100 miles west of Boston. The episode aired on July 30.

 

The property owner said the 1964 International Harvester Metro van was there when he bought the land from someone with a connection to Aerosmith.

 

The reality show stars were able to get in contact with Ray Tabano, a founding member of Aerosmith, who confirmed it was the van the rockers used in the 1970s before they hit it big.

"It certainly looks like it. Oh my goodness gracious," Tabano said. "I'm afraid to say how long it is, but it's been like 40 years since we were in this thing. It was like a touring hotel... This is definitely the van. You found it."  

 

 

The pickers paid $25,000 for the van Wolfe called a “piece of American rock and roll history.”

"We just got a piece of American rock and roll history," Wolfe said. "If you had the opportunity to buy one of the biggest and most iconic pieces of rock and roll history for $25,000 — hell yes you would."    http://www.foxnews.com/auto/2018/08/08/american-pickers-discover-aerosmiths-van-from-1970s-in-massachusetts-woods.html

Can you imagine what all was found in that van? 

Steven Tyler's original lips?

Pablo Escobar's premium powder?

Joe Perry's Big 10 Inch?

Love letters from Mick Jagger?

A saddle?

 

Kings? Queens? Guillotines?

Toys in the attic?

One thing's for sure, if they didn't find something then they should stop all that jivin' and....:D

I much preferred "The Jungle", though I enjoyed both books.

 I'm sorry, I'm from South Carolina. I can't make vague references to books

This is a thread about Aerosmith?  I first read that book at age 8 or 9!

 That must be a regional thing, we read  Deliverance at that age. In history class

The lamps are going out all across America and we may never see them lit again in our lifetime....

 I'm not sure, everything got fuzzy after I finished my Juicebox… 

 No lie, I have a signed copy of Deliverance at home. James Dickey was a professor at USC

I have a feeling more from here, than Tighty Whitey (LFG), would have been extras!  There is a whole class of us here that would have qualified!

Funny thing is, when the movie came out, I had a friend that was the spitting image of him.
