Description: This offbeat roadside attraction features 10 graffiti-covered Cadillacs...
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.

Not much to this except of course the 9 or so upturned Cadillacs spray painted by thousands of people for many years to look like pure colourful eye candy. The photos came out... read more

I saw these over 40 years ago when the cars had not been stripped and had no graffiti writing on them. Back then they were more of a work of art and was known as the "Bumper Crop" It saddens me to see them in this shape - but at the same time I am glad to see that they... More

It's an amusing roadside stop. Great to stretch your legs and walk around. The graffiti is colourful and kids like it

Not much to this except of course the 9 or so upturned Cadillacs spray painted by thousands of people for many years to look like pure colourful eye candy. The photos came out really well on the camera. Advice would be to bring your own spray although we did find a new one there. Everyone leaves their tin for the... More

After reading the history of it and how it became, this was fun to visit. It is about a 15 minute or less visit, and right off the freeway. There is a frontage road to pull over and park. Most likely you will not be the only car pulling over. Don't forget the gift shop! I was not aware of... More

Fun stop on your way to somewhere. Not sure what the attraction is about this place, but you can't not stop. Have your spray paint ready to go. Pretty cool Roadside Americana. Walk in. Pick your canvas. Spray away. Take photo. Leave. Happy that I made this stop and that the ground wasn't muddy on the day I was there.

The concept may have been better in the 80's without the many layers of spray paint. But now it is an excuse to paint. Interesting place for the fun people are having, being able to paint without harm. But trashy for the large number of empty spray cans strewn all over the ground. Perhaps if someone provided large trash cans.... More

Muddy trashy location but the young ones enjoyed spray painting the Cadillac's. If you are a out-of-towner it may be worth a stop for the young ones and get some good photography. Don't forget your paint spray bottle.

I stopped here for the first time. I enjoyed the folk art at its best. You can stop here and lose 15 minutes off your trip or bring some paint and spend some more minutes. It's a nice stop for a traveler or tourist. It's a dirt path walk to get there, so it can be messy if it has... More

I can say I've been there. .got the tshirt with the spray paint stains to prove it. Good activity for the family and a good souvenir picture opportunity. Tip- bring spray paint with you. Lol Wear shoes you don't care about getting dirty. It's old car frames buried in the dirt. Leave your unused paint for the next set of... More

We went on a long weekend trip to Amarillo with the kids and grandkids. Cadillac Ranch was on our list of places we wanted to see. At the gate into the area that you walk through to get to the cars there is a sign that says no graffiti on this side. There were also 2 garbage dumpsters on that... More
