Type: Landmarks/ Points of Interest, 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.

If you want to see a pile of junk Cadillacs then go here other wise don't waste your time. Years ago when it was first completed it was nearer the road and you could see the cars without stopping. Today they are further off the highway and painted an ugly mess. Also there is a lot of trash. A hype... More

I was determined to climb on top of one for my picture and I in fact was able to do so. I was on a trip with 3 other ladies, on our way to UT and passed this as we left Palo Duro Canyon. Have heard a lot about this place but never been... FINALLY I can say I've been... More

As soon as this place is taken off the tourist attraction things to do in Amarillo, and rusts itself into oblivion, the better off all tourists will be using their time to see more important things in and around Amarillo. Thumbs down for me. Waste of half a day. Rated 0/10

I heard about it but when i saw it it is just the most bizarre sight. The paint is inches thick on some of the cars but the colours are amazing. Worth stopping, but if you time it at sunset the cars would look amazing.

If you are in Amarillo or going through it (like us), you should spend about half hour to see the place. This is right by I-40 and you can even see it from the interstate. They were earlier in historic route 66, but later they moved by the interstate to catch more visitors. This is truly an unique place because... More

Ten old (50s) Caddys buried nose down in the dirt west of Amarillo on a service road for I40. A great piece of Americana. Of course, there's nothing fancy about it, but that's not the point. No other place like it.

A great stop if you like these sort of attractions, I don't understand why anyone would give it less then a perfect rating when they knew what to expect it's simply several old Caddy's buried into the ground and you get to leave your artistic mark, I left a Shield emblem and a weiner dog silhouette, they may not be...

Cadillacs stuck in the ground just outside of Amarillo, TX. Rather cool to see when you're traveling through town, but hard to understand why anyone would go by there purposely.

We had a good time wandering around the cars while the children climbed on them and spray painted them. It is a unique attraction. I found it interesting that people leave cans of paint behind so others can enjoy the activity. The people there were friendly and offered to take each others picture with the cadillacs.
