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.

Fun place to stop!

Fun place to stop if you're driving through.... Not worth a special trip, but it's right off of I-40, so might as well! We had planned to go, so had my spray paint ready. There's... read more

A must visit as we were passing, but unfortunately it has seen better days as its now held together by spray paint, not sure why people cannot take their trash with them, it's littered with old spray cans and carrier bags.....a real shame. A dry day works best or it will be very muddy.

Fun place to stop if you're driving through.... Not worth a special trip, but it's right off of I-40, so might as well! We had planned to go, so had my spray paint ready. There's a bunch of partially used spray paint cans laying in the fields, so don't worry if you didn't bring yours. There isn't much to look... More

Interesting place, not what I expected. It's 10 old cars, heavily spray painted with graffiti, half buried in a field. Not sure what I think of it, but I was glad we went.

I love roadside attractions. If you are like my and enjoy random things, I think you will like Cadillac Ranch. It's just off the I-40 and you park on the side of the road. The license plates of the cars parked when I arrived were from New York, California, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Once you go through the painted gate,... More

It's a bucket list check off if you're visiting or passing through Amarillo. Read about the history before you go and bring spray paint if you want to leave your own mark. Cool to see and say you've seen but don't expect too much!

This place was a little quirky joint just outside Amarillo- nothing much to see except the Cadillac's but you can spray paint on these cars and it provides a good little break whilst driving through Texas :-)

The ranch consists of old Cadillacs partially buried in the dirt. Sits along side the interstate. Visitors bring spray paint and the cars get repainted on a daily basis.

Stopped here to finally get a close up of the cars. It was great, but too much rain made it hard to get too close. Interesting idea so I recommend reading up on this site first for a better appreciation of it all.

Grew up in Amarillo and went to take friends to see it last November. Could not believe all the trash that was there. Really wish someone would take a little pride and pick up the paint cans.
