Patrick is looking for a number to beat LiteBulb88's score. Will he do it with one spin I don't think so...

10

A dime. Spin again. Looking for anywhere between .80 and .90. Uh oh look out here comes that 90 but is it too fast?!...

5

Ouch just a tad too much muscle on that last spin. Thank you PatrickRox80. LiteBulb88 you have a shot at redemption! You'll join tpir04 in our Showcases which are happening right after this!

Wow! The martians have landed in our studio!



And here comes their leader with a huge shopping list. First on her list are martian communication devices, and the return with what we here on Earth know better as a pair of new televisions!



A pair of colourful colour TVs with matching remote control cubes. 10" portables with superior high-resolution pictures, ideal for kitchen bedside or patio.

Then while the captain checks out their find, the crew rushes off to search for a martian dishwasher. And what they bring back is a new cradle!




The 'Dynasty' uniquely designed white iron cradle with brass accents from Corsican Furniture. Comes with cradle ensemble from The Armand.

But martians never visit Earth without bringing back a martian 'swooper', because a martian 'swooper' is really a new car!




The sleek, affordable Subaru XT DL. Complete with all standard equipment including a 5-speed transmission and California emission, plus air conditioning and cruise control.

And this Showcase containing prizes revealed during our story about the time the martians invaded The Price is Right can be yours IF the price is right!

My one major worry with doing this instead of actually scouting out catalogues and car ads from the time was that it could be very easy to pull up an episode or recap from 1988 and snag every $100 bonus and bid on the nose on the Showcase so thank you everyone for not doing so :) I have another rewind episode planned I'm not sure if I have any others in between at the moment. Again big thank you to everyone who participated and signed up for making this a big success!
