Roadside America: Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac Ranch is located in Amarillo, Texas along Route 66.

The public art installation was formed in 1974 by a hippie group called The Ant Farm and Texas billionaire Stanley Marsh III.

The 10 Cadillacs are an ode to the transition of the tail fin. They have now spent more time in the dirt than on the road.

This is a fun roadside attraction – bring your spray paint cans!

Lots of people have expressed themselves by adding a personal bit of flair to these upended Cadillac cars. So much paint has been applied over the decades onto the vehicle surfaces that it looks thick leather.

This is what it looked like shortly after the original installation.
