History Channel’s “American Restoration” Filmed on Downtown Campus
Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman and Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Coffin will lead an official ribbon-cutting and grand opening ceremony of the new 1.5-acre campus of Rick’s Restorations, filming site of the History Channel’s hit reality TV series, “American Restoration,” starring Rick Dale.
The weekly show features the Dales and their 23-man expert crew who take old, dilapidated and often historic items and return them to their original glory. Every project is approached as a high-stakes business venture designed to restore a valuable collectible that preserves a piece of American history and/or pop culture.
Tours of the facility will be offered following the brief ceremony.

About Rick’s Restorations
In 1983, when the Las Vegas economy hit the pause button, construction worker Rick Dale changed his course with the restoration of a 1957 Coca- Cola dispensing machine for an antique enthusiast. An avalanche of similar requests from around the globe came from those interested in reclaiming what the United States had previously thrown away, transforming Dale’s backyard business to a restoration empire. Today, over 30 years later, Dale is a highly regarded expert on antique and artifact restoration. He appears regularly on the History Channel’s “Pawn Stars” and in 2010 earned his own show – “American Restoration.” Dale shares the spotlight with his real-life partner, Kelly, who oversees administrative, operational and financial responsibilities at Rick’s Restorations, along with a crew of 23 restoration experts. Located in downtown Las Vegas on a sprawling 1.5-acre campus, Rick’s Restorations features a Hollywood studio-like set with a 1940s Main Street motif creating a kitschy and charming backdrop for “American Restoration,” which airs weekly on the History Channel.
