While America may not have the most historic roadside attractions in the world — say, Stonehenge, for example — we do have something no one else can lay claim to: the Cadillac Ranch outside of Amarillo, Texas. Since 1974, the plot of land with 10 graffiti-covered Cadillacs sticking out of the ground has drawn…
It is appropriate to both acknowledge and dismiss the old when starting something new, but a Cadillac dealer in Texas took this to an extreme by using an Eisenhower-era Caddy to break ground on their new building.
Half buried in the ground and covered in spray paint, there isn't much left of the elegance these 10 Cadillacs left the factory with. Found off what was once Route 66, Cadillac Ranch remains a popular tourist attraction and reminder of a time gone by.
