People who want to restore their broken-down classic cars often don't have the time, money or both to get the jobs done, and that's fine with Dennis Pittsenbarger. In ``Highway to Sell,'' Pittsenbarger -- an automotive authority and veteran race car driver -- and ace mechanic ``Slick'' partner with car owners to get clunkers back up to speed. Dennis, Slick and their team spend their own money and time working to restore the cars. However, once complete, the cars hit the auction block, and the owners have a difficult choice to make: take a cut of the profits, or buy the cherished rides back at discounted rates.

Highway to Sell - Lincoln Highway - Netflix

The Lincoln Highway was one of the earliest transcontinental highways for automobiles across the United States of America. Conceived in 1912 by Indiana entrepreneur Carl G. Fisher, and formally dedicated October 31, 1913, the Lincoln Highway ran coast-to-coast from Times Square in New York City west to Lincoln Park in San Francisco, originally through 13 states: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and California. In 1915, the “Colorado Loop” was removed, and in 1928, a realignment relocated the Lincoln Highway through the northern tip of West Virginia. Thus, there are a total of 14 states, 128 counties, and more than 700 cities, towns and villages through which the highway passed at some time in its history. The first officially recorded length of the entire Lincoln Highway in 1913 was 3,389 miles (5,454 km). Over the years, the road was improved and numerous realignments were made, and by 1924 the highway had been shortened to 3,142 miles (5,057 km). Counting the original route and all of the subsequent realignments, there have been a grand total of 5,872 miles (9,450 km). The Lincoln Highway was gradually replaced with numbered designations after the establishment of the U.S. Numbered Highway System in 1926, with most of the route becoming part of U.S. Route 30 from Pennsylvania to Wyoming. After the Interstate Highway System was formed in the 1950s, the former alignments of the Lincoln Highway were largely superseded by Interstate 80 as the primary coast-to-coast route from the New York City area to San Francisco.

Lincoln was also the publisher, and was based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania very near to where the highway passed through the city.

In 1928, the song “Golden Gate” (Dreyer, Meyer, Rose, & Jolson), sung by Al Jolson, included the refrain: “Oh, Golden Gate, I'm comin' to ya / Golden Gate, sing Hallelujah / I'll live in the sun, love in the moon / Where every month is June. / A little sun-kissed blonde is comin' my way / Just beyond the Lincoln Highway / I'm goin' strong now, it won't be long now / Open up that Golden Gate.” In 1937, composer Harold Arlen and lyricist E. Y. Harburg (composers of “Over the Rainbow” and many other hits) wrote the song “God's Country”, for the 1937 musical Hooray for What! The song was subsequently used for the finale of the 1939 MGM musical Babes in Arms, starring Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney. The song starts with the famous lyric: “Hey there, neighbor, goin' my way? / East or west on the Lincoln Highway? / Hey there Yankee, give out with a great big thank-ee; / You're in God's Country!” In the 1940s, the Lincoln Highway Radio Show on NBC featured the theme song “When You Travel the Great Lincoln Highway”. A rare surviving recording of the song can be found online. Woody Guthrie's “the Asch Recordings” 1944 and 1945 included his song “Hard Traveling” with the line “I've been walking that Lincoln Highway / I thought you knowed”. In 1945, the title ballad (music by Earl Robinson, lyrics by Millard Lampell) from the 20th Century Fox World War II film A Walk In The Sun mentions the Lincoln Highway: “It's the same road they had / Coming out of Stalingrad, / It's that old Lincoln Highway back home, / It's wherever men fight to be free”. In 1974, the song “Old Thirty” was composed by Bill Fries (C.W. McCall) and Chip Davis for the album Wolf Creek Pass. An early verse contains the lyric: “She was known to all the truckers / As the Mighty Lincoln Highway / But to me She's still Old Thirty all the way”. In 1994, the song “Lincoln Highway Dub” is an all instrumental song created by the band Sublime in their album Robbin' the Hood. It features elements later used in the well-known song “Santeria”, also by Sublime. In 1996, Shadric Smith composed the country-western swing “Rollin' Down That Lincoln Highway” which was recorded in 2003 by Smith and Denny Osburn. In 2008, Smith revised some of the lyrics. The original 2003 recording of the song and the revised 2008 version can be found online. “Rollin' Down That Lincoln Highway” is one of two Lincoln Highway inspired songs that was featured in the 2014 documentary film 100 Years on the Lincoln Highway produced by Tom Manning for Wyoming PBS.

In 2010, singer-songwriter Chris Kennedy released the CD Postcards from Main Street, a collection of 11 odes to small towns, two-lane roads, and a simpler, slower life. His fourth track is “Looking for the Lincoln Highway”.

In 2013, for the 100th Anniversary of the Lincoln Highway, Nils Anders Erickson composed the country song “Goin Down the Lincoln Highway: 100 Years in Three Minutes”, featuring steel guitar and honky-tonk piano, with lyrics mentioning people “coming from Norway and the UK”. The accompanying video, which can be viewed on YouTube, features over 300 images captured by Erickson of current and destroyed landmarks from Council Bluffs, Iowa, and three versions of the Historic Douglas St. Bridge. Erickson's intent is to create a version for every Lincoln Highway state. In 2013, in celebration of the Lincoln Highway's Centennial, Nolan Stolz composed the symphony “Lincoln Highway Suite”. The symphony has five movements: “From the Hudson”, “Metals Heartland”, “Prairie View”, “Traversing the Mountains” and “Golden State Romp”. The Dubuque Symphony premiered the composition June 2013. Also in 2013, singer Cecelia Otto traveled the Lincoln Highway from New York to San Francisco for her project American Songline, in which she performed vintage songs in period attire in venues along the highway. In 2015, she published a book recounting her journey and released an album of songs from her concert program; the album also featured several original songs about the highway, including “It's a Long Way to California” and “Land of Lincoln”.
