Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz

On American Pickers, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are on a mission to recycle America, even if it means diving into countless piles of grimy junk. Hitting backwoods and dirt roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank rescue forgotten relics and restore them to their former glory—transforming one person’s trash into another’s treasure.

American Pickers follows them as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages, and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories. Part sleuths, part antiques experts, and part cultural historians, Mike and Frank have a knack for finding hidden treasures in the most unusual places.

Wolfe...emphasizes the autobiographical significance of each item he purchases. He is always sympathetic to sentimental value-what these pieces evoke, and what they mean to their owners.
