A trip along America's historic Route 66. The car is the cornerstone of modern American life; yet cars need roads, and so the road too is a cornerstone. But while cars have regularly been raised to the status of cult objects in song, poetry and film, roads have tended to keep a more prosaic image. By then, almost everyone wanting to "motor west" was using the main east-west interstates, I-40, I-60 or I-80. It was in 1926, the year in which Henry Ford launched the Model-T and put the automobile in reach of the ordinary American, that officials decided that the . should have a federal road network.

Producer – Joe Loesch.

Driving down America’s Main Street will be like a trip to America’s past. Route 66 was built in the 1920’s as part of the American expansion to the West. It was thus lovingly called America’s Mother Road. However, it soon became more than just a road. But first we have to find it. That is, however, easier said than done, as it is not on any of the regular maps. During the 1950’s it became a destination in itself with motels, restaurants, shops and sights – some natural some manmade.

Route 66 - America's Main Stree. This was a great book, I loved it. Lots of good information that I did not know.
