Danny "The Count" Koker is in the Driver's Seat When New Car-Loving Series Premieres on HISTORY(R)

COUNTING CARS

July 25, 2012, New York, NY - Most people in Las Vegas bet with chips. Danny "The Count" Koker bets with cars. He's a Sin City legend with an insatiable appetite for anything on wheels. Danny acquires, restores and customizes classic cars and motorcycles - and then "flips" them for a profit.

Well known to HISTORY viewers thanks to his frequent appearances on the hits series Pawn Stars, The Count moves into the driver's seat when COUNTING CARS, the new HISTORY series, premieres with a sneak preview on Monday, August 13 at 10:30pm ET and then moves into its regularly scheduled day and time on Tuesday's at 10/10:30pm ET thereafter. (Beginning Tuesday, August 14)

Ever since the first Model-T rolled off the assembly line in 1908, cars have gripped the psyche. Danny is no different. He walks, talks and breathes American muscle cars, vintage Harleys, tricked out trikes, and dune buggies. When he sees a ride he wants - whether it's on display at an auto auction or parked at a roadside diner - he will stop at nothing to acquire it, often making on-the-spot offers with cold, hard cash.

It's not just a passion for Danny, it's a high-stakes business. With the help of his talented team, Danny must restore, modify, customize and sell these highway gems in a hurry. The more rides he "picks," the more pressure there is at his Las Vegas shop to move these vehicles fast to stay in the black.

Every episode of COUNTING CARS is bursting at the seams with amazing stories about historic vehicles, jaw-dropping before-and-after transformations and wheeling and dealing at its absolute best. From vintage Thunderbirds to classic Corvettes and souped-up sidecar motorcycles, Danny will stop at nothing to find and flip the greatest rides of all time.

COUNTING CARS is produced for HISTORY by Leftfield Pictures. Zachary Behr and Julian Hobbs are Executive Producers for HISTORY. Executive Producers for Leftfield Pictures are Brent Montgomery, David George, and Shawn Witt. Joel Patterson is Co-Executive Producer for Leftfield Pictures.
