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.

Cool history

The site has a cool history, though it isn't much to see up close. It's worth a stop, but for the history of the project.

What was once a novel attraction is now ten old deterioted stripped down buried cars. The only thing holding them together is the graffiti spray paint. If you are passing by, then stop and take a look. I would not drive out of my way to see.

Over the years I have heard so much about this place I had to put it on my itinerary as I trekked Route 66 through Amarillo. I was absolutely not disappointed. It exceeded my expectations and I took a zillion photos. Anyone who likes Roadside America must see this place! Meeting the others who are gathered around the attraction is... More

We had seen this on Billy Connolly's Route 66 and it was a must see stop. Maybe not as extensive as we'd thought but still a lot of fun. The cars had been re sprayed for organ donation awareness the day before which left a blank canvas to graffiti - with the best intentions! We hadn't take spray cans but... More

While driving my daughter across country on Route 66, we had to stop here! She absolutely loved seeing the Cadillacs in the ground and being able to paint her name all over the cars. You just have to go, it's a once-in-a-lifetime chance!

I had heard about this years ago and since we were in the area we stopped. It was a fun thing to do. We didn't realize you could spray paint on it. Spray paint was provided and you paint anywhere you can find. There are layers upon layers of paint. It's a fun spot to stop if you happen to... More

Creating some warm feelings! You immediately remember what was going on in 1968 and the sixtiers as well in Europe,not burying cadillancs, but old conservative manners and fashions.Very good that many non traditional things remained up to now

Standing all alone in a farmer's field, one finds this on going art exhibit as visitors add with their own spray paint and cover up the previous visitor's work. Sadly, too many people leave their empty spray cans out in the field which is also littered with lots of plastic bags, etc. Too bad people are so insensitive as the... More

I recently visited Cadillac Ranch & was surprised that there wasn't more to it. It is easy to get as it is next to I-40. The paint fumes were terrible & most people aren't terribly cautious about when & where the spray paint the cars on exhibit. Save yourself some trouble & just drive by on I-40.
