We visited the famed Cadillac Ranch near Amarillo, Texas on our way to Oklahoma City. The tradition is to leave your mark on the old Cadillacs buried nose-down in the ground. Unfortunately, we left our spray paint at home, so we just had to take photos.
Cadillac Ranch is located on a wind-swept portion of I-40 (not Route 66) and is like the ruins of some ancient civilization dotting the landscape. I suppose it could be a pop-culture homage to the car culture of 1950's, or just a quirky Texas joke. Either way, it's quite a sight to see.
