American Restoration premiered on HST on October 25, 2010. When it comes to restoration, Rick Dale is the Pawn Stars go-to guy. This new series follows Rick's work as owner of Las Vegas-based Rick's Restorations, a family business that finds, restores and up cycles cools objects ranging from Cadillacs to Coke Machines. On Pawn Stars, Rick has restored everything from barber chairs to a 1937 gas pump. The before and after reveals of his work are always highlights, in part because of the history nuggets Rick shares about each object, including where, when and why they were invented, who used them and how fixing or transforming them changes their value. Rick considers himself a storyteller who works with tools instead of a pen. Each episode follows Rick, his staff and his teenage son, as they search for a variety of objects to be bought, bartered and transformed as they set about to restore objects to precise original detail.
