Welcome to the Museum of Automobiles located atop beautiful Petit Jean Mountain in central Arkansas! On 5 November 1895, George B. Selden was granted a United States patent for a two-stroke automobile engine ( U.S. Patent 549,160 ). This patent did more to hinder than encourage development of autos in the United States Selden licensed his patent to most major American automakers, collecting a fee on every car they produced.
Although the automobile was to have its greatest social and economic impact in the United States, it was initially perfected in Germany and France toward the end of the nineteenth century by such men as Nicolaus Otto, Gottlieb Daimler, Carl Benz, and Emile Levassor.

Exterior-impact energy-absorbing devices include the structural elements of the chassis and body, which may be tailored to deform in a controlled manner to decelerate the automobile more gradually and, as a result, leave less force to be experienced by the occupants.
