Premise: ``American Restoration'' is all about keeping America's past alive by restoring pieces of Americana that have seen better days. Whether it's a classic car, a vintage gas pump or an antique toy, a lot of elbow grease and a little TLC can go a long way in bringing these things back to how they looked when they were new. The first several seasons featured the work of Rick Dale's crew at Las Vegas-based Rick's Restorations, but now the show has diversified and highlights crews that work on restoring old items at several shops around the country, some of which have client lists that include some of the best-known celebrities and businesses in America.
