As if a Clock Game disaster wasn't bad enough, now it's Gas Money:
2015 Fiat 500 Pop hatchback (1.4L, 5MT; RR)

$18,625
$21,300
$17,495
$20,565
$19,770

This is actually doable for me... I'd steer clear of $19,770. $19,xxx seems to be the going rate for a Fiat 500 around here.

Pick #1: $21,300

...Bless you, Drew, for doing the full reveal! As a statkeeper, it bugs me to no end when a game ends without us learning the ARP of something.

Wasn't expecting that setup to be aced! (Of course, the odds against a Take Two ace aren't terrible or anything, only 5-1 against.)

Bonus Game:
Avanti Fitness folding treadmill, Samsung 55" LED HDTV, & massages for 1 year (24 sessions; $6,560; RR)

And in response to a question I was asked earlier in the week (but may have been missed) regarding the NCR cash register in Grocery Game being only the second-oldest prop still in regular use on the show, the oldest prop remains the Bonus Game shell and price reveal mechanisms, which despite the gameboard having been gutted for a plasma-screen upgrade a few years back are still 1972 originals as far as I know.

Three out of four... but I have a sick feeling the air purifier may have been it. On the other hand, you can't always tell by how tricky the individual SPs are anymore... it could literally be any of them.

Fingers crossed, and...
