Click above to watch the video after the jump

It has been a long, long time since we've watched The Price is Right – let alone on a regular basis, but there was a time when 11:00am was Bob Barker time. Barker has, of course, been replaced by comedian Drew Carey, but the game show hasn't changed much for the most part, and still rocks the most when either Plinko is being played or the showcase involves a new car.

That's good news for Taylor, a 19-year-old who celebrated his birthday on the show last year. Taylor had what could only be called one of the luckiest days in show history (at least to auto enthusiasts), winning two rear-wheel-drive cars, a scooter, a trip to Boston and a boatload of money. Now that's what we call a birthday present, and hopefully Taylor was able to use some of his winnings to trade up from a V6 Ford Mustang to a GT. Hit the jump to watch this oldie but goodie. Top tip, Mojo!

      Pretty funny when Carrey lost it when the Mustang was won.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hmmm...Apparently Drew Carey must have been his dad.

      After Bob left I really stop watching TPIR. The only thing I watch in daytime now is As the World Turns and the Bold and the Beautiful :) It's cool she won that nice car.

      First off - I just want everyone to look at how many of the past 2 days news stories involve a mustang haha. I am looking forward to the new V8 though.

      I must say, Price is Right must be having some financial difficulties if one of the showcases is an American flag, a trip to Boston, and a stripped Dodge Charger. Oh well...

      At least Taylor can sell the two cars and buy himself a nice one! They always give out the stripper cars with ZERO options, save for an automatic transmission. I'd rather have a cheaper car optioned out than either of those cars to be completely honest. Sell that Charger and get a Mazdaspeed 3 or a GTI for sure. Pocket the cash from the mustang plus that $25,000 - that kid had some EPIC luck

        Strippers used to be the rule but not anymore. Now they give away lots of imports with decent options packages. Heck, earlier this year they had BMW M5 as a prize. It didn't get won though.

        If I remember correctly most of the prizes are donated. In the past year it's been hard to sell cars so why not give a few away for advertising considerations and tax write offs? Add in the fact that it's filmed in Los Angeles and you have lots of people willing to help. Still, there are too man HHR's and PT Cruisers in the prize mix...

        An M5??? Really - wow. I know every once in awhile there's a decent car (I remember a Corvette a few years ago) but all the episodes I've seen lately are stripper domestics in colors that obviously didn't sell on the showroom floor so they were "donated'. I'd be pretty confident that ALL of the cars are donated just as a marketing ploy, just as ALL the other prizes are donated prizes as advertising. It's a lot of obscure prizes - Jacuzzis, Saunas, Hobie Cat boats - so if these companies have inventory lying around that isn't moving - get some advertising out on it!

      A friend of mine won a car on the Price is Right. Since it was Geo, he asked the dealer to trade it up. Their contract with Price is Right would not allow them to do it. Supposidly it was Price is Rights way of protecting the consumer from scammer dealers.

      He sold the GEO and bought a Jeep Wrangler.

      The kid looks like a total douchebag.

      I mean...look at how he addresses the crowd. He kisses his fingers, and points towards the audience.

      You arent a fraking rockstar, douchebag.

      Get over yourself.

      wonder how happy he was when tax time came 'round.
        • 5 Years Ago
        @Hazdaz:

        I don't think you understand how much taxes there would be on $79k in prizes. He'd have to sell one of the cars to pay taxes on all of that. A $2500 scooter wouldn't even come close.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Who cares? Selling the scooter or a fraction of the Big Wheel winnings would have paid for any and all taxes on those winnings.

        That was an awesome video clip BTW.
        • 5 Years Ago
        $26,000 of that $79,000 was in cash. I suspect he'll be able to afford the taxes without having to resort to the Bank of Dad.

      I attended a taping in 1985. The woman next to me won a Jaguar, and $11,000 cash. At the time she had the largest winnings ever at $58.000.

      I always love the randomness and complete unfairness of this show. Someone will have to jump through hoops in some near impossible game to win a dinette set from the 70s, and yet someone else has to guess 3 numbers and they win a $30,000 car.

      My birthday is next month, I need some douche clothes and a flippy-do hairstyle....

      BTW the Charger was a 2.7 V6, they couldn't get the 3.5 at the least? wah, wah, wahahahahaaaah....

      heh, remember on Fam Guy, Cleveland was a Plinko chip?

      Ever since his cameo on "Happy Gilmore", Bob Barker has been a god. That and his romps with the big Tata's (not the the car company) from the show......
