CHESTERFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Long before Aerosmith filled stadiums with tens of thousands of fans, the band traveled New England in a tiny van playing to smaller crowds.
That dilapidated van has been found in the woods of a small Massachusetts town.
Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, hosts of the History Channel show “American Pickers,” located the van in Chesterfield, a town of about 1,200 residents 100 miles west of Boston.

The pickers paid $25,000 for it. Mike Wolfe says it’s “a piece of American rock and roll history.”
