It seems like a disaster, but Wayne has a hunch that he knows who the original owner is. With just 48 hours to put together a deal, Wayne and a friend hop aboard a private Gulfstream 450 in the middle of a blizzard and fly to Denver with the hopes of buying this rare Ferrari.
S01E06 Internet Flips & Finds 04/11/2008 From back yards, to barns, to the Internet, vintage cars can surface anywhere, but it takes a lot more than blind luck to find them. Getting access to these vehicles is all about who you know. Invited by a friend in the wholesale business, master car restorer Wayne Carini travels to a remote avocado field in Southern California where he gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to inspect a secret collection of vintage cars worth millions. Meanwhile, a collector friend of Wayne's shows off one of the most legendary eBay finds of all time. Listed online as a Devin racer, it turns out the car was actually something much more special. Underneath the shell of the Devin was an extremely rare Ferrari race car. Despite the very public online auction, only the collector saw the clues that helped him guess the vehicle's true origin and purchase the car for only $35,000. Restored, the Ferrari will be worth upwards of $4 million. Back in Connecticut, Wayne generates some auction excitement of his own when he puts a 1961 Maserati 3500 GT Superleggera for sale on eBay.
S01E07 Hunt for the Davis 11/11/2008 Following a hot lead, master car restorer Wayne Carini heads out to California on the hunt for an ultra-rare car. When he shows up at an address in Costa Mesa, he finds a Davis -- a three-wheeled, purple and silver four-seater reminiscent of an overgrown bumper car. Built in the Van Nuys during the late '40s and billed as a revolutionary new kind of car, the Davis was engineered with two wheels in the back, but only one in the front. Made from lightweight aluminum and powered by a V-8 engine, this offbeat car was originally priced to sell at $1,000. But before they could start the assembly line rolling, the creator, Gary Davis, was indicted for 28 counts of fraud and grand theft and sent to prison. The Davis factory was shut down after only 13 cars were completed. With the clock ticking, Wayne must decide if he'll buy this rare, but odd, car on the spot -- or be forced to walk away.

Can Wayne keep his cool and get his cars across the auction block?
S01E09 Porsches, Porsches, Porsches! 25/11/2008 On a trip to Southern California, master car restorer Wayne Carini tracks down and buys one of the first Porsche 911s to ever be imported into the United States.

His dream was to go vintage racing with the Morgan, but tragically, two weeks before he was to race it he had a heart attack and died. Shortly thereafter, his wife rolled the car into their barn and closed the doors. Now, more than fifteen year later, Wayne offers to buy the Morgan in all its dusty glory.
