The All American Mother Road

Arcadia, OK – ARCADIA, OK A drive along old U.S. Highway 66 often provokes nostalgic memories of a bygone era of two-lane roads winding through small towns dotted with mom-and-pop stores, full-service gas stations and tourist stops. Two Birmingham, Ala., men hope their trip down the Mother Road causes others to look to the future, at least when it comes to vehicle fuel. Mark McConville and Keith Barfield are making the journey from Santa Monica, Calif., to Chicago in a candy-apple red 1966 GTO that's been converted to run on compressed natural gas.
