Allison is going to the Showcase, with $6,000 in her pocket! This is where Bob mistakenly resets the Wheel to a dollar in the Bonus Spin. Immediately after the show returns from commercial, he admits his error, and decides to award Allison the $10,000 anyway, so she now has $11,000 total.

I wonder if this was the same Chrysler Crossfire that was used in the Olympics-themed Showcase the same year.
