Storyline

The theme of this is the significance of the American highway, featuring the history of motoring, which explains that to drive the first cars was quite an adventure in itself, due to awful roads (which back then were not much more than rutted wagon paths) and the scarcity of fuel supplies and spare parts, not to mention the lack of useful maps and signposts, resulting in short drives turning into day-long affairs.

Trivia

This show includes footage of the first cars to travel the unpaved Lincoln Highway, America's first cross-country route, in 1913. That film was in storage at the University of Michigan and had started to decompose, requiring careful attention by the Disney technicians to make a permanent copy for future school use. See more »
