On June 29, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed into law the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act which initiated the construction of 41,000 miles of interstate highways across America. As a result, many small towns that had once thrived along the famed east-west Route 66 were bypassed by the new high-speed interstate highway system. Faced with financial ruin, these small towns struggled to survive. This true story is recalled in the 2006 Walt Disney Pictures film, Cars. I personally like the way Cars presented this - a bit of American history in an all-around fun film. Not to mention the fact that I'm a guy and hey, guys and cars...you get the picture.
