Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas
On the side of the highway in Amarillo, Texas, Cadillac Ranch is a popular tourist location that draws thousands of people a year to take a little break from their drive to visit these historic Cadillacs. It was built in 1974 by a group of artists from San Francisco. They called themselves The Ant Farm, and their silent partner was Amarillo billionaire Stanley Marsh. He wanted a piece of public art that would baffle the locals, so they came up with a tribute to the evolution of the Cadillac tail fin. Ten Caddies were driven into one of Stanley Marsh's fields, then half-buried, nose-down, in the dirt. Though they have been moved to a slightly different location since then, the concept still remains the same after all of these years. If you are ever driving through Amarillo on Interstate 40, you should take the time to stop by this quirky little roadside attraction.
