Cadillac Ranch 4

Our stop in Amarillo, TX was merely to spend the night and move on out the next morning! But, I had to see the famous Cadillac Ranch. If you are ever in Amarillo, follow I-4o and take exit 62. You’ll see the large field that is the home to the wild and crazy Cadillac Ranch. Worth a visit for sure.

From Wikipedia: Cadillac Ranch is a public art installation and sculpture in Amarillo, Texas, U.S. It was created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez and Doug Michels, who were a part of the art group Ant Farm, and it consists of what were (when originally installed during 1974) either older running used or junk Cadillac automobiles, representing a number of evolutions of the car line (most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs; the tailfins) from 1949 to 1963, half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
