Sporting the licence plate digits from the presidential limousine, the Beast, our decorative ornament is a fun collector's item. A wonderfully colorful and eye catching, patriotic piece, the number plate ornament celebrates freedom, the diversity of the states and the beauty of the open road. Proudly made in the U.S.A., it makes a fun gift.
Envisioned in the 1930s following a cross-country convoy, and enacted two decades later, the Interstate Highway System was championed by President Dwight Eisenhower. The highway system has had a tremendous impact on the entire country. Created in part to help defend the nation in the event of an emergency, the interstates—with limited access and many lanes—have also influenced the development of commerce throughout the United States and abroad. The interstates have also impacted the mobility of all Americans, allowing them to move out of major cities and establish homes in a widespread suburbia far from their workplaces, while enabling convenient travel between regions for vacation and business.
During the decades of its construction, the interstate highway system was the largest public works project in American history—pumping billions into the nation's economy all over the country. It continues to have an economic impact because of the maintenance and repairs needed for the roadways.
