Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality docuseries follows a team of restorers working on vintage antiques. Some items feature logos from current companies like Coca-Cola, Hershey's, and Harley-Davidson.

Is It Any Good?
The series presents a lighthearted, but interesting look at the hard work and creativity that goes into the restoration of vintage objects. It also reveals how much each high-end restoration is worth, and the value added to each object once the project is complete.
Granted, most folks won't be drawn to this kind of thing unless they have an interest in antiques or vintage collectibles. But for those who are, it offers a chance to see how historic objects documenting America's popular culture are being salvaged one piece at a time.
