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.

  • This was lots of fun as we got to spray paint on a Cadillac, take pictures, and meet lots of people. We had bought a can of spray paint with us but there really was no need as lots of people had left....  more

  • We did like the visit there. There were LOTS of other people spraying and taking photos so you have to be kind and patient....It was rather toasty and there is no shade so our pups had to find random spots to hide from the sun. A handheld umbrella for shade may be a good idea if you make the journey during the hot seasons. There is someone there selling spray paint of you aren't prepared and the souvenirs are great. We got a few cups and shirts and the little cafe truck sells fantastic coffees and smoothies. Plus, they have water bowls full of cool water for pets if needed. I would love to go again.
  • The iconic Cadillac ranch is a must stop at least once, if you’re passing through Amarillo Texas. A great piece of pop art I guess, and a icon on the route 66 Mother Rd. I went about 9 AM on a Sunday morning, and it was fairly packed with people. But I am sure it gets even more busy at other times.It’s a great place to get some cool pictures and read the various messages of graffiti that are inscribed on the different vehicles.Bring your spray paint, there Was a vendor selling spray paint but it’s $7 per can.
