In 1957 when automobile designers were artists before they became scientists, and automobile lines were about style rather than aerodynamics, some of the world’s finest examples of true automotive art came to life.
At the new ’57 Heaven Museum in Branson Missouri, you can walk down memory lane through this unparalleled collection of the finest examples of American made steel, all from the year 1957.
Comprised of over 70 cars, the collection is the brainchild of Glenn E. Patch, a media entrepreneur who has combined his love for classic automobiles with a comprehensive collection of 50’s rolling sculpture that preserves and honors the era. Complementing the classic automobile museum are period exhibits of an authentic 1950’s kitchen, living room and other examples of the roaring 50’s lifestyle exhibits, all reconstructed in settings that capture the mood and spirit of the period. The museum features a children’s’ room with an authentic display of hundreds of children’s toys from the 50’s and a gift shop with thousands of unique souvenirs and collectibles.
The auto collection combines the bold, beautiful and powerful in a mixture of Chevy Bel-Air convertibles, Corvettes and two-seater Thunderbirds, Imperials, Fords, Lincolns, Cadillacs, Buicks, Olds, Pontiacs and Packards. At the 57 Heaven Museum you can see them parked at the Diner, on Main Street, or catch a glimpse of the action at the Drive-Inn Theatre. No where in the world have finer examples of these museum quality 1957 vintage automobiles been assembled in a single facility.
Every Mopar for ’57 is represented including hardtop and convertible models in superb original paint schemes. Rounding out the collection are Hudson’s, Mercury’s famous Land Cruisers, the tiny Nash Metropolitan and the unique Studebaker Golden Hawk.

As one last reference, B Line Traffic School in San Diego, CA got me out of my traffic ticket quickly when I was caught speeding in the old 57’
