Two South Dakota locations to be featured on popular TV shows
It was reported recently that two unique South Dakota locations will be featured on popular television shows: Pioneer Auto Show in Murdo will be on The History Channel’s “American Pickers,” and Hansen Wheel and Wagon Shop in rural Letcher will be on The Discovery Channel’s “How It’s Made.”
Pioneer Auto Show is a massive collection of classic cars and antiques. Located along Interstate 90, it’s a favorite stop of tourists on their way to Mount Rushmore. “American Pickers” stars Mike Wolfe and Colby Cushman spent a day in August rummaging through the dozens of buildings on the grounds. The anticipated air date is during the spring of 2012.
Hansen Wheel and Wagon Shop describes itself as “a family owned and operated carriage and wagon manufacturer established in 1978 and located on the plains of the Dakotas” that provides “the most historically accurate horse-drawn vehicles anywhere this side of the 1800s.” The shop recently announced on its Facebook page that a crew from “How It’s Made” plans to spend three days filming wagon-making and stagecoach-building, with the show to air at a later date.
