George Clinton brings the funk to ‘American Restoration’

The Las Vegas-based “American Restoration” kicks off a new batch of back-to-back episodes at 10 p.m. Thursday on History.

Other projects this season will include a 1976 AMF Evel Knievel bicycle, a quarter-scale model of a 1932 Hudson car, a British 1950s Ariel Square Four motorcycle and a 1900s cigar slot machine.
