ANOTHER BAD case of the El Cheapo showcase! Who would've thought Harold's showcase would be THAT cheap?

Well it was 1992.  In 2006 it would be somewhat of a shock to have the showcase be that cheap, but definitely not 1992.

I'm not surprised at all.  14 years can bring lots of inflation.

Exactly; a $14,000 showcase wasn't at all cheap in 1992. $14,000 was probably worth more than most the cars being given away on the show at that time. For instance, a 1992 Buick Century probably cost that much.
"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?"
