Here's more information about the guests we featured:

Gilles Marini & Barry Weiss at Auctions America

Celebrities love collecting cool cars and actor Gilles Marini and Barry Weiss, star of A&E’s “Storage Wars" are no exception! Auctions America’s third annual California sale takes over Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on Friday, July 17 and Saturday, July 18, and the multi-day auction features some 300 quality collector cars with everything for the entry-level collector to the veteran hobbyist. Today we have a sneak peek with Weiss's 1955 Ford “Beatnik Bubbletop” custom hot rod that started out as a 1954 Ford and has since been transformed into the world’s largest bubbletop custom car by Gary “Chopit” Fioto.
