These ten graffiti-enhanced
vintage Cadillacs have been amusing westbound
travelers along Interstate 40 for over ten years.
The work was initially conceived and produced
by the Ant Farm, a group of artists from San
Francisco, California. The ten cars range in
age from a 1949 Club Coupe to a 1963 Sedan.
Local business owner Stanley Marsh III arranged
for the collection of cars to be planted --
front-end down -- along a section of old Route
66. The original installation was completed
in 1974, but the display was moved to its current
location in 1997.
Visitors are welcome to stop
and take photos. Exit the Interstate at either
exit 60 or 62 and follow the frontage road on
the south side of the highway to a dirt road.
The gate is usually unlocked, making it easy
to park near this oddly charismatic exhibit.
Additional information, including a surprising
amount of information about each car, is available
