This is crazy. Also, I was scared they were going to drop it at the end of the segment.
During ROADSHOW’s 2016 stop in Salt Lake City, Utah, appraiser Grant Zahajko met Cary, the owner of a rare red variation of the 1969 Hot Wheels “Beach Bomb” prototype — whose astounding value Zahajko estimated at $100,000 to $150,000. Cary said he had owned the car for 50 years, ever since his father, who worked at Mattel Co., brought home the prototype as a gift when Cary was just a boy. In the spring of 2019, Cary met up with Zahajko again, this time to hand over his “Beach Bomb” for Zahajko to sell on his behalf. Watch the exchange and hear what it has been like for Grant to market the “holy grail of Hot Wheels.”

Fat Elvis probably has like four of these in his garage.
Zahajko is from Davenport, WA — just outside of Spokane.
(Population 2000. It might have a stoplight).
Can I get a ruling on that pretentious pronunciation of “provenance”? Are we gonna talk like that?
As required by Antiques Roadshow clause 125(1)(a)(i)(b).
Odd how much they were manhandling it for it being so rare and valuable.
