Type: Landmarks/ Points of Interest, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: 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.

This is always good for a quick stop when driving through...easier accessed going eastbound, but worth the trouble to check out this bit of "history,"

An iconic Route 66 stop, the Cadillac Ranch is an enigma. What could possibly draw tourists to a few Cadillacs planted in the West Texas soil? A lot, apparently, as locals and tourists alike make regular stops here and leave their mark on one of the turned up cars. Probably the best selfie spot until you get to the Cross... More

whilst on our route 66 drive this kept cropping up when we searched things to see. So off we went to see it. We pulled in and were a little underwhelmed by it. I think i had just expected it to be much bigger in size. It was still worth a visit on a cold blustery December Day. I think... More

I can't even imagine what the purpose of this was supposed to be. Maybe it started out as something but it has devolved into a dusty field with several car carcasses buried nose down in the soil and people mindlessly wander out into the field to spray paint on the cars. I am told they were Cadillacs but there are... More

Came here in February for the first time it was allot of fun but we were not prepared with spray paint, found some on ground and had fun. This time we came prepared with plenty of paint but got tired after about 15 minutes. It rained few days prior so it was very muddy. Made me upset to see how... More

I found this display interesting and a great place to visit at sunet. If you don't plant to paint you could probably spend 15 minutes here and feel satisfied. I would especially suggest planning a visit before/at sunset.

Great to see! You walk out into a pasture and see 10 cadillacs buried in the ground on a billionaire's property Stanley Marsh 3. You can spray paint on them. Interactive art. On old Route 66.

Sure it's just a bunch of old cars buried nose down in a field, it just put a smile on my face. Take spray paint so you're prepared to create your own artwork, snap a quick pic before the next artist comes along. I just wish people would pic up after themselves

I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting to see ... but this wasn't quite it. Cadillac ranch is literally a field just off the freeway where you park your car, wind through a muddy gate and walk across a barren field to see the cadillacs that have been 'planted' in the ground. Fun to see but literally takes 5... More

Located on the Eastbound side of I-40 just west of Amarillo is the Cadillac Ranch. I think it was exit 60. It's quirky, artsy, etc. In the middle of nothing by an open field you will view 10 Cadillac's buried in the ground that have many years/layers of spray paint on them. We brought in 2 cans of spray paint... More
