JFK's 1963 Lincoln Continental.

Bill Clinton's Mustang

Don't pass this museum by! It's just the right size. It's nicely curated, with placards that tell you a bit of history -- not only about the car, but of the time period and what was going on in the automotive world.

Bill's Mustang wasn't currently on display, but JFK's Lincoln (owned by the Clinton Foundation) was. We also saw the Elvis (The King) Presley's Ranchero, and a super neat roasted peanut truck.

Don't miss the turnoff to Sam's point overlook to see Petit Jean's grave and an awesome view of the Arkansas River Valley.

Museum of Automobiles

This is a really interesting building at the top of Petit Jean Mountain. It was built by the branch of the Rockefeller family that moved to Arkansas. It has 48 cars and seven motorcycles.

Winthrop Rockefeller was an Arkansas governor; two of his Cadillacs are on display. Another presidential car at the museum is a Lincoln Continental convertible driven by JFK. And the museum has Ford Ranchero driven by Elvis in the 1960s.
