Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas
This place is a trip. Basically you bring a can of spray paint to the paint the Cadillacs on the ranch, corn, ground, or garbage cans. An aristocracy of roadside attractions has been raised over the years: glorified in photo essays, calendars, blogs, and social media fiefdoms; spotlighted in video and film; instantly recognizable as icons. These Great Monuments, we are told, represent America's hopes and dreams, art and commerce, materialism and spiritualism, folly and fame. The line-up. Cadillac Ranch is one of them. Professional authors and screenwriters know a pre-baked, easy-to-get symbol when they see it. Who are we to buck the trend? 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.

Along Route 66 West of Amarillo, Texas sits this gem of an attraction. A worthy stop for anyone wanting to experience the weird side of America. We loved leaving our art at Cadillac Ranch.
Cadillac Ranch AND MORE! | Amarillo, TX
We were excited to stop, both dogs in tow, in Amarillo, TX and see Cadillac Ranch. It was yet another taste of vintage Americana, like what we'd been seeing along Rt. 66, only this time with an artsy twist. And if you've been watching our channel for a while, you know we love funky, DIY and street art! But what surprised us as we researched the area was that there were all kinds of classsic cars buried in and around Amarillo. VW Slug Buggies? They got 'em! Combines? Yep - a whole Combine City! (If you're like us, you may be wondering what a Combine is. Don't worry - we answer that in the video!) So join us for the last installment of our cross-country road trip as we freeze our bottoms off in Texas. Then leave a comment and let us know if you've been, if we missed anything, or even what kind of car you'd bury! | For more, follow our adventures in real time on Instagram stories @StephenAndAndie 📷
