Cadillac Ranch-Amarillo, Texas

Standing along Route 66 west of Amarillo, Texas, Cadillac Ranch was invented and built by a group of art-hippies imported from San Francisco.


They called themselves The Ant Farm, and their silent partner was Amarillo billionaire Stanley Marsh 3. He wanted a piece of public art that would baffle the locals, and the hippies came up with a tribute to the evolution of the Cadillac tail fin.




Ten Caddies were driven into one of Stanley Marsh 3's fields, then half-buried, nose-down, in the dirt (supposedly at the same angle as the Great Pyramid of Giza). Tourists are always welcome at Cadillac Ranch. If you bring spray paint, make sure to also bring a camera.


Because whatever you create at Cadillac Ranch will probably only last a few hours before it's created over by someone else. #texaschronicles #txchron #cadillacranch #ilovetexas #texastravel
