John and Jimmy Sell a Custom Pogo Stick for $500 on 'Dirty Money' (VIDEO)

Where some people see a pogo stick, John and Jimmy DiResta see an investment. On 'Dirty Money' (Tuesdays, 10PM on Discovery) they happened upon some people in a public park doing amazing pogo tricks. The DiRestas stopped to make them an offer, and they agreed that if Jimmy could make them something they'd never seen before, they might spend between $400 and $500 for it. After some trial and error, Jimmy delivered, making a custom old school pogo stick. "You can see I'm using a double spring that gets extended as opposed to compressed," he said, explaining his creation. "This is one garage door spring cut in half and then hooked onto this adjustable mechanism right here." //

KISS Inspired Bass Guitar on 'Dirty Money' (VIDEO)

For any aspiring rock god, the most important weapon in your arsenal is a killer instrument, and few instruments look more killer than the custom-made bass featured on last night's 'Dirty Money' (Tue., 10PM ET on Discovery). The new series sees brothers (and entrepreneurs, of a kind) John and Jimmy DiResta turning other folks' trash into their treasure, customizing flea market finds and selling them at a profit -- and their Gene Simmons-inspired guitar is the first of many. //

Discovery's 'Dirty Money' Crew Explains the Art Of Dumpster Diving (VIDEO)

If you've ever been taking out the trash and spotted something on the curb and thought it could be worth something, you may be right. At least that's the philosophy of brothers John and Jimmy DiResta, the stars of the new Discovery show 'Dirty Money.' The pair appeared on 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) to talk about the show and their chosen profession. With the help of John's son Matthew, a.k.a. Rat Boy, the DiRestas find trash on the streets of New York City and try to turn it into saleable treasure. "New York City garbage picking is all about timing," said Jimmy in a clip from the show. "If somebody's evicted, if somebody's moving, if you're right there at the right time, it's like getting a parking spot." The clip also showed Rat Boy climbing into a dumpster, with his proud father noting his agility. //
