Whenever somebody wins the car in "Pass the Buck", if the contestant has 1-2 picks left, Drew will ask if s/he wants to continue on to try to win money, which I can't recall Bob ever doing. Also, when Bob was hosting, if the 3rd contestant beat the leader in one spin, he would say "You don't want to spin again, do you?", although I can't recall Drew ever saying that once. I was wondering, as monumentally stupid as it would be to do any one of those things, has anybody ever done one and/or both of those things before? I've never seen it, but I would take a wild guess to think either one has happened at least once in almost 19 years of "Pass the Buck", and 45 years they've had the big wheel.

Clickbait title changed to a more descriptive one. Thanks tpir04 for the suggestion.

First of all, welcome to G-R, hope you enjoy your stay. Second, this board usually frowns upon clickbait titles, so please steer clear of those. Third, I cannot answer your first question, but I believe there was one instance in the 90s where the third player elected to spin again, though I am likely completely misremembering.

I can't seem to find the clip, but there was at least one instance (late 90s or early 2000s) where a contestant spun again after taking the lead without being prompted. Bob reminded him that if he went over he wouldn't be in the showcase. He ended up going over.

...wished threads with stupid clickbait titles would be locked on sight? Yep!

DylanBe, you're new here, so I'll cut you a little slack... but if you want to start a new thread, make the title of the thread what it is actually about, not something ambiguous that gets people to click on it to find out what's in it.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

I'm sorry, I'll think next time, anyway, should we consider moving all discussion from here to the "Simple Questions & Answers Thread" and delete this topic?

There was a playing of Pass the Buck in which the contestant won the car with one choice left and Bob told him he wasn't even going to ask him if he wanted to go on and to get off the stage.

If my memory serves me right, I think that there has been some instances that Bob asked the third contestant (the leader, in this case) to spin again, hoping to get a total of a dollar, for a bonus spin, but I'm not exactly sure on where I've seen that.
And all these can be yours if The Price is Right!

Is anybody able to find a video of any of these events happening?

I haven't found any from the US version, but I found one from the 1989 Australian revival. Ian Turpie mistakenly took the show to a commercial break, but the producers let the contestant spin trying for the dollar. See for yourself:
