TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A well-known reality star is in town to help open a new car showroom.

Rick Harrison is celebrating the grand opening of Ed Bozarth's new showroom this weekend.

Harrison co-owns the world famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, featured on the History Channel series "Pawn Stars".

Ed Bozarth invited Rick after becoming hooked on the show.

"I just sit there and watch and then I think 'boy I wish we could negotiate the way Rick negotiates' but our customers won't take $5,000 for their $20,000 car," said Bozarth.

"He's got a dealership in Vegas, I've bought a lot of cars off him and he called me up a few weeks ago and said, 'Hey, wanna come out to Topeka, Kansas?' and I said, 'Why not, I've never been to Topeka, Kansas," said Harrison.

Rick will be at the Ed Bozarth Chevrolet location at 37th and S. Topeka Blvd. from 3:00 p.m. till 7:00 p.m. Friday and 10:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
