Cadillacs On The Horizon

The Cadillac Ranch, located on the outskirts of Amarillo, Texas, has 10 Cadillacs buried in the earth at a 60-degree angle, the same angle as the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. The Cadillacs are buried in chronological order, starting with a 1949 Club Sedan on the west and a 1963 Sedan de Ville on the east. The sequence of the Cadillacs was intentional to highlight the evolution of the tail-fin.

Cadillac Ranch

Created in 1974 by a group collectively known as the Ant Farm, Cadillac Ranch consists of 10 Cadillacs from 1949 - 1963 buried nose-first into the ground on the outskirts of Amarillo, Texas. Purpose-built, the Cadillac Ranch was created to make a statement about innovation, the American Dream, and consumerism. The evolution of the tail-fin, shown through the chronological order of the Cadillacs, is supposed to highlight the absurdity of car design that made vehicles increasingly unsafe at any speed.
