Out with the old, in with the new ... even when your new car looks just like the old one -- at least that's how the guys from "American Pickers" do things.

Mike Wolfe recently hooked himself up with a 2015 Ford Transit after co-stars Frank and Danielle prodded him for months to can the old ride.

We're told the old van had 275k miles on it and was starting to smell -- so they gave up on constantly paying to fix it.

Check out the pics for some serious storage space.

The last van they had was a Mercedes Sprinter. So I am sure the repairs must have been expensive. I still don't get how this is a story. Guessing their ratings must really be down. So they gave this story to tmz.

WTF? This has nothing to do with geriatric millionaire bigots being shaken down by 20-something sugar babies! Did someone finally take a potty break? Your stringers couldn't find anyone who hadn't already reacted? Left to calling car dealers in the area to see if anyone famous bought a new car?

"this isn't news blah blah blah" fvcking whiners. You people clicked the story, who's fault is it you're even here? If you people want news, don't go to a celebrity gossip website, r*tards. Ps: it's your fault any of you are here.

I heard Frank actually bundled for the van, and got them to throw in the hubcaps for almost nothing!

Likely Ford marketing had something to do with this. Just like Fiat partnered with TMZ to publish celebs in a 500. No harm, just happy to see American vans join this century.
