Cadillac Ranch Route 66 Junkyard installation and sculpture in Amarillo Texas USA

Cadillac Ranch off Route 66 is a public art installation and sculpture in Amarillo, Texas, USA. It was created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez and Doug Michels, who were a part of the art group Ant Farm. It consists of what were (when originally installed during 1974) either older running used or junk Cadillac automobiles, representing a number of evolutions of the car line (most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs: the tailfins) from 1949 to 1963, half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle purportedly corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.

Green with envy Hamilton Pool Texas

The American dream is to do a road trip across America, Ive’ been fortunate to do a couple so far the first was in a car from Texas to New York but that was not quite a scenic road trip so the the next one I did a couple of years later was East to West and back West again. We went from Florida to California and back again over 6 weeks in an RV. Taking in the sights in all the States between including Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Utah, Arizona, Nevada and California.

One of the locations I was really interested in seeing was Hamilton Park in Texas.

Cadillac Ranch is not a ranch but a public art installation and sculpture in Amarillo, Texas, USA. It was created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez and Doug Michels, who were a part of the art group Ant Farm.

Cadillac Ranch Amarillo

When we got into Amarillo it was late and dark already but that was fine as I had the feeling it would look pretty cool to shoot the Cadillac’s in the dark. Only thing I did not count on was the mossys! To say I got bitten hundreds of times was not an exaggeration, the next day I looked like the elephant man and was proper sick.
