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.

An interesting art piece that allows one to use spray paint to add to it. Desolate locale adds to the ambiance and experience.

The wind was howling when we went here. The best someone can say is that it is different and should bring a smile to one's face. In one sense, it is too bad it is now open to anyone with a spray can, as I would have like to see the Cadillacs themselves. They are almost indistinguishable now. The Cadillac... More

Fun place to stop when passing through on IH 40, take a few pics and "legally" apply your own graffiti to the cars (if you happen to have brought your own paint or find a can laying around with a bit left in it).

I will just say it was not near what I expected or was not near what it was jacked up to be. For me it was a joke

My wife and I went to the Cadillac Ranch with our two best friends from out of town. The best way to view the Cadillac's is with several cans of spray paint, latex gloves, and a camera. You are allowed to spray paint the cars as much as possible, but make sure you take some pictures because the next day... More

Cadillac Ranch is very easy to miss. You basically have to watch for cars parked along the road. The Cadillacs are in a pasture but I must say, it was worth the walk to see. People have sprayed paint over paint and it's hard to believe just how thick the paint is on these cars. I'm not sure I would... More

If you are expecting a visitor's center or even just a sign, you'll be disappointed. The metal shells of old Cadillacs are planted at an angle in a cow pasture. That's all there is to it. But considering that the monument commemorates the glory days of American automobiles and is located along Route 66, history buffs, fans of Americana, classic... More

There are no signs....no lights...nothing that would even let you know this is there. Easy to miss it. But if you need directions, go to the Cadillac RV where you will see some Cadillac's out front. They will tell you how to get here...and have some souvenirs if you are interested. If you want to have some fun, bring a... More

If you are expecting a completely different out of nowhere stop to see something completely different then this is for you. (if you have high expectations, id give it a miss) I have visited here several times, usually armed with visiting friends and some spray paint, always we have had a great time and its always been full of others...
