YES! I had this episode on tape at one time, but I misplaced it or taped over it.

Switcheroo- In 1976, $9,000 was huge for a main prize in Switcheroo. Makes me wonder if in the days before 3 Strikes + and One Away "plus", they used to slip luxury cars into the regular games. Or in this case, a camper/truck.

I've described this odd playing off Clock Game before, but since it's up here, I'll mention it again...the prizes were presented like the first playing of Any Number: the pool was presented first, solo, and once it was revealed that Clock Game was going to be played, Bob explained that with the time left after the pool, she'd be bidding on...THIS!

And I don't remember this being the show where they offered two different trimlines of the Chevy Nova in the same episode, but maybe it happened more than once. They didn't offer such a large variety of cars in those days. It seemed like there was at least one Chevy Nova in every show. The other car was generally a Buick Skylark or a Chevy Vega.
"Atinale el precio" moment: Contestant Laila has jumped into Marco's arms and taken his microphone.

Laila: "How much do I weigh? Give me your bid."
Marco: "Er...without going over?"

Yeah, seems virtually everything was a Vega or a Nova.
