WATCH: American Pickers locates Aerosmith's original tour van
Aerosmith was featured this past Monday on the latest episode of History channel's American Pickers, an antiques and collectibles reality show.
Last summer, hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz located Aerosmith's 1970s tour van, a 1964 International Harvester Metro, in a wooded area approximately 175 km west of Boston. The van's authenticity was verified by the band's original rhythm guitarist, Ray Tabiano.
Wolf and Fritz forked over $25,000 USD for the rusted van, restored it to its original condition, and presented it to the band during their "Deuces Are Wild" residency in Las Vegas.
Steven Tyler and Joe Perry were understandably overjoyed with Wolfe and Fritz's find.
