    American Restoration

    documentary

    AMERICAN RESTORATION features Rick Dale and his crew of loose screws at Rick's Restorations in Las Vegas, Nevada, as they take rusty, beat-up items and restore them to their original glory. Whether it's a giant gas pump from the 1940s or a Hopalong Cassidy bicycle from the 1950s, every restoration is a high-stakes business project where worthless rust is transformed into a valuable collectible. However, these restorations aren't easy. Every project presents unique challenges for Rick and his team, who develop inventive processes to finish each job flawlessly and on time. From old gas carts to timeless slot machines, the items Rick restores are part of the fabric that makes up American culture. Things just aren't made like they used to be, but at Rick's Restorations, old becomes new again. Bodie does a custom restoration on a 1967 Ford "Eleanor" Mustang, for Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds. Meanwhile, Dale has his hands full trying to get a rare 1936 Crocker motorcycle to run and Steve restores a 1924 Isotta Fraschini Type 8A for a long time friend and customer. Steve gets cooking on transforming a rusted-out 1956 Willys truck into a BBQ kitchen-on-wheels. Meanwhile, Bodie and his son turn a mini-Divco "milk truck" kiddie car from the 1960s into a souped-up go-kart and Bob is chomping at the bit to restore a 1952 Bally's coin operated horse ride. Bodie takes on the juicy restoration of a 1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe for the CEO of Carl's Jr. Meanwhile, Dale is in a rush to build a bike in time for his museum's annual motorcycle raffle and Andy restores a 1952 Shuffle Bowler game that may or may not have ties to the mafia. Dale finds the engine from a super rare 1940 Harley-Davidson WLD in a box of seemingly random parts and is tasked with trying to put the puzzle back together. Meanwhile, Steve turns a 1959 Cadillac tailfin into a custom couch for a Cadillac fanatic and Bodie and his team restore a 1963 Ford Galaxie back to its former "race code" glory. Steve works on a unique roller-skate car from the 1970s. In addition, Dale tries to restore a 1929 Harley Davidson for a magazine owner, and Bodie puts the focus on a 1930s penny scale for a soda shop.
