I've got to fill in some details:

*Pamela's audience friends are the two most '70s-lookinmg guys, ever. They spend the entire playing of Lucky Seven going off their gourds.

*We're playing with the rainbow wheel for the showcase showdown. The $1.00 space on the wheel has a distinct beep that stands out from the normal beeping sound effects. Also, there's a gaudy contestant podium for whoever's holding the high score at the moment.

*In the fourth-one bid, the golf-ball is rigged to take a somewhat unlikely path into the hole.

*Card Game's Colleen is a great contestant, thanks to the fact that she has no idea what's going on. It isn't until her bid makes it into the four digits that she says: "Oh, NOW I know what I'm doing!!" It's a very time-consuming playing of Card Game; this makes her win all the more awesome, at least in my opinion. Bob also does his "tune in tomorrow..." gag.

*Marjorie hits "STOP" so hard in Range Game, that Bob declares that "it may never start again, and we won't have Range Game on the show any more."

*In the second showcase showdown, Marjorie gleefully waves bye-bye to Filomena when she beats her score, but Filomena won't leave until Marjorie practically shoves her off the podium. Bob has to have a little talk with her.

*The theme of showcase one is "Four Corners", which was used in another episode on the same disc; presumably, this was a recurring showcase theme using 4 trips.

"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?"

Any idea what options the cars had on them today? I presume that the convertible, since it was full-sized automobile, had at least air conditioning and a stereo radio; the automatic transmission (GM's Turbo-HydraMatic), power steering and power disc brakes were all standard.

Sometimes, I guess you have to do things yourself. I ended up buying the DVD and watching the episode, so ...

Anyhow, for the record, that Oldsmobile Delta 88 convertible had air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo radio (as I had figured), plus wire wheel discs, white sidewall tires and dual remote sport mirrors. Two easily visible options on the car that were not included in Johnny Olson's copy (and I'd guess not considered for that difficult, difficult to guess price) were tinted glass and a passenger-side visor vanity mirror.

Too bad I wasn't 36 and on the show back in '75; you can win the car and then take a carload of pretty girls out for a ride on a Saturday night! Oh well, I guess you can still do that today if you find a GM full-sized convertible in excellent shape!

It was the Friday show, but it was broadcast on Wednesday.  The entire week was aired out of order.
