Cherry '57 Chevy

Bursts Into Flames

A History Channel orgy that brought together the stars of "American Pickers," "American Restoration," and "Pawn Stars" has ended in a fiery wreck.

In case you missed the 3-show special -- "American Pickers" found a classic, '57 Chevy fixer-upper ... "American Restoration" brought it back to life ... and then both shows gifted it to the Old Man from "Pawn Stars" as a birthday present.

But in a tragic turn of events, it overheated this morning ... and burst into flames.

Bad luck for the Old Man ... it's the second time this year one of his cars was incinerated by fire -- back in February, his 1966 Imperial Crown Convertible -- another cherry car --  was engulfed in flames.

I remember seeing this episode and thinking that a great car was going to be destroyed. I think that maybe the mechanic didn’t know what he is doing being this is the second car that has went up in flames. I enjoy all three shows here but my favorite is American Pickers. I still recall when the boys located this car to be restored. I guess it’s going to have to go through the process again. I keep up with these shows using the Sling adapter. This gives me TV everywhere on my iPad. I connected this up to my employee service and getting access to my DVR recordings or live TV has never been better. I have more time to enjoy TV that I have in the past ten years. I found the flexibility I needed and I don’t know what I would do without it.
