"Being in the pawn business you have to put a value on everything," said Les Gold of American Jewelry and Loan. "I figure if this guy wanted a $100,000 and I was going to pay $40,000 - that it would be worth at least $50,000."
FOX 2: "What are you hoping to get out of it?"
"If I can get $40,000 which is what was going to be my offer, I would be more than happy to sell it," Gold said. "This is an iconic piece of Detroit history."
Gold, whose pawnshop is on the Tru TV reality show Hardcore Pawn, says it's a bit of a fixer-upper.
"The car doesn't run, the interior is in bad shape," he said.
Gold says he has the title, registration and Kevorkian's driver's license.
It is interesting how something that was once seen as sinister by some and a saving grace to others can end up a curiosity in a pawnbroker's warehouse - largely forgotten by a public once fascinated by Kevorkian's crusade.
"We can only appreciate something for so long," Gold said.
"You know what, I should approach him," Gold said. "It's always for sale."

American Jewelry and Loan owner, Les Gold, said in a recent interview with NPA that "the show is about a family run pawn shop and the crazy things that occur between the family, the customers, and the items they bring in." He emphasized that one of his priorities is to help break the stigma that pawn shops have carried for decades. Les Gold also noted that he had no editorial control in the production process and, until just recently, was not allowed to see any footage of the show.
