Imagine a time before a highway system. GM tells you why the *new* highway system is a necessity!

Now we're talking! The time is 1954 and the highway system as we know it does not exist and crisis is at hand! General Motors is going to tell you *why* it is so important to build new fabulous, futuristic motorways. Of course, this was purely a public service announcement and we are sure in NO WAY meant to help sell more cars. This is a mini-movie and a little longer than our other gems, but well worth a watch!
