Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo

3.6
At the public art installation Cadillac Ranch, see the vision of three individuals who created a sculpture from Cadillac cars in the 1970s. Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez, and Doug Michels, members of the art group Ant Farm, repurposed old and unused Cadillacs into this installation based on their aesthetic interest in cars and their desire to find a new, unorthodox form of architectural work. The cars, which are tilted and partially buried into the ground, are now covered in graffiti and paint from visitors over the years. When you stop by this surreal site, a short walk from the highway, take photos or add your own art to the automobiles. To plan Amarillo vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • It’s great to find this attraction still accessible and kudos to the farmer for allowing folks to enter the property and get up close to these cars. It’s a terrific stop for some great photos on a sunny day. There’s not much to it but it’s a “must stop”. Don’t forget to bring your own spray paint, and please take your empty rattle cans with you when you leave.
  • It's one of the most recognized stops on Route 66. My son and I drove from Chicago to Santa Fe and it was one of his favorite stops. Make sure you bring a few cans of spray paint. We were lucky to find some used cans on the ground but it would be better to bring your own.
