History is bringing together cast members from three of its thriftier hits for a two-hour “crossover event,” dubbed The Pick, The Pawn and The Polish.

Airing on July 11, a storyline will thread through a block of episodes of the History “artifactual” series American Pickers, Pawn Stars and American Restoration.

Within the block, American Pickers stars Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz chase down a classic ’57 Chevy for Pawn Stars’ Rick Harrison, which is then brought to American Restoration’s Rick Dale for a complete overhaul.

Pawn Stars and American Restoration are produced by Leftfield Pictures, while American Pickers (pictured) is produced by Cineflix Productions.
