About History Channel’s American Restoration
Follow owner Rick Dale and his team at Rick’s Restorations in Las Vegas as they take unique, broken-down pieces of American history and bring them back to life. Rick will tackle the toughest of projects, from a 1960s NASA Jet Pack to a 1920s grand piano. Running a shop like his is never easy, and with business booming, Rick has to hire extra hands to keep up with the workload.

There are no ordinary workdays in this world of one-of-a-kind items, impossible-to-find parts and tough deadlines in a shop full of big personalities. This is American Restoration.
