This is one of the famed kitschy spots off of the old Route 66. It's great to stop and stretch your legs and see the famed Cadillacs. However, there are hundreds of discarded spray paint cans and plastic tops littering the ground. This aspect is disappointing!

I guess I do not know much about art but what could be more cool than Cadillacs sticking up out of the ground in the Panhandle of Texas. Just took a quick look as I was on a business trip and was driving from Amarillo to Albuquerque or Santa Fe or Tucumcari or someplace so I just had a quick... More

I guess if you like seeing cars stuck in the ground, then by all means stop here. Most of the cars are hardly "cars" anymore either. They more closely resemble chunks of metal with a car-like shape. it's safe for the family, and you could spray paint them if you want to, but it's not really a very big attraction... More

I was hoping it was more secluded, further away from the city/road. you're allowed to spray paint the cars, and everyone does it, I had a tough time grabbing a photo without anyone in it, would recommend stopping here and grabbing some shots, it's pretty cool to see the cars dug down into the ground, worth checking out.

Stopped here after leaving Amarillo. It's an iconic Route 66 spot. Our son loved the fact he was given free rein with a few tins of spray paint and ten blank canvases to work on! Fun times.

The kids really enjoyed it. Only advice is to go when it has not been raining. It was a huge mud hole and due to the water could only get up close to two cars. Even with the mud and water it was still fun! Something different that we hadn't done before and got some great pics!

We stopped here as part of our Route 66 journey and pleased that we did. Great place to get out and wander around for 20 mins or so. The kids (and adults) had lots of fun spraying the cars. Would definitely recommend this place as a stop off.

Great spot, special. It is also what it is: old cars buried. Combine it with Route 66, Amarillo and you will have a great roadtrip.

It is worth a visit.. The old Cadillacs have been there a while and in rather sad state of vandalism and the worst for wear. But join int the fun, bring your spray can of Krylon and join in the fun !

Man! If you can time this for dusk with the sun setting to the west! Not sure of the story behind this but it's basically several long Cadillacs buried at tilted position into the dirt/desert just outside Amarillo o the west of town. One of a kind attraction which is 50 feet off I-40! Perfect photo opp! Must see! Highly... More
