    They named the town after the company, ALCOA (which stands for Aluminum Company of America). ALCOA makes everything from soda cans to semi alloy wheels. In fact, if you see a semi with alloy wheels, they're almost definetly ALCOA wheels.

    Anyway, I just thought that was kinda interesting...

    Carry on.
