Overview

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.

We had heard so much over the years about this and seen it referenced in different media. The cars have been spray painted over the years. I guess that is the idea but it is way too modern for our taste. It would be nice...More

One of the free things to do in Amarillo, Texas. Parking is on the roadside access. Go through a turnstile gate and walk up to the installation. Bring your own spray paint or find some left there by other visitors.

A Route 66 standard. No charge to visit and a great little novelty attraction. Luckily I found some spray cans on the ground with some paint left in and was able to leave my mark, as temporary as that will be. Great photo opportunities.

The Cadillac Ranch is just that----buried cars. Past visitors have sprayed some lovely Bible verses, prose and artwork. I am a lifelong Panhandle resident. If someone wants to visit the Panhandle, I recommend coming around Christmas time and hearing a church program, a school program...More

This is a piece of nostalgia you probably shouldn't miss. It was a nice walk out there. An interesting concept that kind of makes you scratch your head. We wouldn't have wanted to miss it nor would we do it again. They want you to...More

We were prepared for this on our adventure along Route 66 by stopping at Amarillo Home Depot to get some paint. It’s a roadside art price that stands the test of time of people stopping all day to lay down there own bit of legal...More

We parked on the shoulder of the road. There is no real parking. It is on a service road so I would think that since traffic is slower that you could safely park. Have fun!
