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.

Bring some spray paint cans if you wanna make your mark on this piece of art. Also if it has been raining wear some boots or mud appropriate foot wear as it gets quite deep.

What do you call nine older Cadillacs buried in the ground? Art of course or something akin to it. Just west of Amarillo on the south side of I-40 is where this structure sits. The Cadillacs are buried nose first in the ground and have been and continue to be spray painted by visitors. Interesting stop.

What can you say about a bunch of Cadillacs stuck nose down in the hot Texas dirt? Why? This tourist stop is fascinating if nothing else because of the burning question - whose idea was this? Back in the day when I first saw the Caddies they were painted in their original colors - or at least in colors that... More

nicd to see, the cars are covered with color a few inches thick. Everybody is leaving his cans behind, so the place is looking disgusting.

I planned to stop here whilst I was in the US. I was driving all the way from Norman, OK and ended up getting lost even though all I had to do was follow the I40 there. Luckily as it's quite a well known tourist attraction I was able to ask at a gas station and was given great instructions... More

I had seen a documentary or news clip years ago about the Cadillac Ranch, but when I actually visited I was disappointed to walk through a muddy field to see them all full of graffiti. You can bring your own paint and have it if you like. I did not like.

Fun and interesting art installation, but only if dry weather do you dare walk out there. It' otherwise a fun stop, we have been several times over the years, it changes over time, and I will be sad if it deteriorates away (looks like it might and the artist did die in 2015)

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.
