Moderators mountainborn Posted June 29, 2008 Moderators Share Posted June 29, 2008 Thought I had carefully read the internet's information on the CADILLAC RANCH. But I had overlooked something. It had been many years since my last visit as a child, and the display had been moved, nearly three miles to the West, out of the city limits of Amarillo. And, you can no longer drive right up to it. In my mind, I had pictured still being able to drive right up to the Cadillacs. It didn't happen. When they were moved, they were placed nearly a quarter of a mile out in a field that is actively being farmed. There is a walk thru only gate, and most folks walk in with their spray cans and cameras in hand. Here is the view from the frontage road: Man, oh, Man ! Don't Ollie make them ol' Caddies look good ! The Cadillac Ranch has quite a movie history behind it and has been the subject of several National Campains of different types. Recently it was painted all black when an animator from the movie ANTZ passed away. Then it was once painted pink for a Breast cancer awareness promotion. I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth 08' Oliver Legacy Elite HULL NUMBER 0003(sold) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
