“A shrine to awesomeness!”

Cadillac Ranch outside of Amarillo is a well-known piece of automotive art created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez, and Doug Michels

Visitors are encouraged to walk around and even spray paint the cars for fun.

The cars were briefly "restored" to their original colors by the motel chain Hampton Inn in a public relations-sponsored series of Route 66 landmark restoration projects. The new paint jobs and even the plaque commemorating the project lasted less than 24 hours without fresh graffiti.

Bring your spray paint and a bag to help keep it clean! Such a cool random bunch of cars just chilling in the middle of a massive field!

For those that are Handicapped and in a wheelchair this is not accessible. The gate leading into the ranch has a turn style entrance which a wheelchair can not fit through. If you can walk thru the gate and have someone lift your chair over the fence then I would visit other you will be standing on the outside looking in.

This was awesome.. The kids enjoyed leaving the family mark on the cars.. I recommend taking extra shoes especially if it's rained.. The mud becomes very tary like clay.. Otherwise it was well worth the stop.

This place is awesome! If you don't have a can of spray paint on you persons -- no worries -- there are tons of almost dead soldiers littering the ground. Pick one up and have fun!

This was an easy stop and would be no matter your direction. Going East get off at Exit 60 and take the frontage road right to the parking for it. Going West, take Exit 62 and do the same. The walk in is about 1/4 mile and as long as it is not wet, it is easy walking. There are usually paint cans just floating around if you have the sudden, unplanned desire to paint. If you know you want to paint, leave your can for the next people. There is parking for large towing motor homes. If not, wait a few minutes for people to pull out and there will be plenty.

Another place at the top of my bucket list. Hope to someday leave my mark (only to be covered up by the next person who wants to leave a mark).

Kids had so much fun here leaving their mark. Unbelievable Amy of trash here. We passed on one can of paint to others and found a few plastic bags laying around and filled them with the garbage others had left behind. Everyone saw the kids picking up trash and commented on how nice that was. We suggested they do the same and were bewildered to see them walk out empty handed. They have two dumpsters there for your convenience.

I loved stopping and taking my daughter here since she was so excited to see it on our way to the Grand Canyon. It was pretty cool and we took some pictures. The only sad thing was all of the trash people continue to just dump when they're finished. Have some respect people.
