O.J. Simpson‘s car chase on the California freeways inside the white Ford Bronco effectively changed the news cycle with around-the-clock coverage becoming the new normal in the wake of the explosive case. Simpson’s former agent is hoping to cash in on that tense time in history by hawking the infamous truck on the reality series Pawn Stars.
TMZ Sports reports:
Simpson’s former agent, Mike Gilbert, got in touch with Rick Harrison in the hopes of unloading the car he got from Al Cowlings following the 1994 slow speed chase on the 405 freeway.
During the episode, which airs Monday on History, Gilbert told the guys he’s had very serious offers in the past — but wants more than half a mil or no deal.
Gilbert wants $500,00 but the outlet reports that the show’s host, Rick Harrison, has never paid higher than $128,000 for an item.
In recent times, the Bronco has been used as a prop for parties and other events after Al Cowlings, the driver of the vehicle who was reportedly held at gunpoint, sold the vehicle for $200,000.
