Classic 'Pawn Stars' Chevy Returned to Cherry State ... Within Hours

10/3/2011 4:00 AM PDT

Knowing a good mechanic is the key -- the guys from "Pawn Stars" proved that Friday when their incinerated classic '57 Chevy was fixed within hours and returned in tip top shape.

Immediately after the fire was extinguished, the car was sent to show regular The Count from Count Customs, who replaced the tires and steering wheel ... as well as lots of other parts. 

The car was a gift to "The Old Man" on "Pawn Stars" from stars of various History Channel shows, including "American Restoration" and "American Pickers."  It caught fire Friday AM.

The repairs cost "the Old Man" around $3,000.
