This offbeat roadside attraction features 10 graffiti-covered Cadillacs standing upright in a row, buried nose-first in the ground. The sculpture is the brainchild of Amarillo millionaire Stanley Marsh III, who chose classics dating from 1948 to 1963, the "Golden Age" of the American automobile.

After church visit

After church we spent the Sabbath afternoon visiting the 2A Cowboy and Ranch. It is a goofy installation but fun to see. Great photos. If you are going to be in Amarillo you... read more

Neat place right off I- 4o. Great place to see something different and for some fun photos opportunities. In winter months bring a hat (windy)

When you have to drive across the country, I've learned it's worth stopping to take in the scenery, even if those stops add both time and miles to the journey. My wife and I picked up Route 66 just past Flagstaff and started making each suggested stop. This was one of our last attractions before heading for Florida. It was... More

The Cadillac Ranch was a worthwhile artistic attraction on our otherwise monotonous drive through mid Texas. It was windy as hell and in the middle of a field, but it was interesting to see the cars upended in the dirt and covered in so many visitors unique tags. Some might say the spray paint ruins the cars but I thought... More

You cannot pass by Cadillac Ranch without stopping - I think it is illegal not to stop. We were lucky enough to be driving by on a dry day - the field looks like it can be pretty mucky if it is wet. If you miss the first turnoff while driving Eastbound on I-40 take the next exit and double... More

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but the photos don't lie and this is literally a dozen or so Cadillacs shoved nose first into the dirt. I guess I expected more cars? I really have no idea but you should love it for what it is, a gloriously tacky monument to all things route 66 Americana. I just wished... More

...but if you are around you might as well take a look at this iconic place. Reilly weird scenario with all the visitors trying to leave their mark...it´s muddy only after rainfall, i.e. not too often...

Always people there. Take some spray paint and leave your mark. Lots of fun. Google the story before you get there. Always impressive.

Located in a corn field just off the freeway, you'll find this famous (infamous?) site. The cars have been abused over the years and are barely recognizable as Cadillacs anymore. Pretty sad. There is no information explaining their origin or purpose, so it's basically just a photo op. It was pretty muddy the day we were there, since you have... More

Unless you have a share pair of shoes you might want to just view this from afar! Even though it may not look it at first, this place is really muddy. No need to bring your own spray paint. There were at least half a dozen cans left around if you want to leave your mark on a vehicle.
