Scrap Stars: YouTube auto ‘picking’ show continues to rack up the views

Rochester, New York – The auto recycling industry is finally getting some of the star power it deserves as YouTube-based “picking” show “Totaled Treasure” released its second episode in late-December.

Styled in a similar vein to shows like “Canadian Pickers” and “Storage Wars”, “Totaled Treasure” follows Vince Edivan and Aaron Stone as they travel across America visiting auto recycling facilities to dig through the abandoned vehicles in search of valuable, interesting, or just plain strange artifacts.

The show’s second episode, which premiered on YouTube on Dec. 22, featured the pair visiting Wilbert’s U Pull in Rochester, New York and hoping to settle the bet of which of the two is the true “King of Christmas.”

Edivan and Stone banter and lightheartedly compete to find the most interesting items left behind in the Wilbert yard, including an iPhone, a guide to boat piloting and more than just a little bit of weed.

Not only do the pair seek to entertain, however, but also spread awareness about what is an often overlooked but nevertheless vital aspect to the lifecycle of a vehicle.

The introduction of the show provides a brief overview of the history of auto recycling with much of the messaging of the show reinforcing the idea that what is abandoned is not necessarily junk.

Totaled Treasure’s YouTube channel has over 400 subscribers at this point and the numbers are continuing to climb as this latest video has been watched more than 12,000 times.
