18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Cadillac Ranch

I have always had a deep love for Cadillacs since my first car was a 1992 Cadillac Seville at the age of 16. So naturally, I had a longing to visit a place called "Cadillac Ranch". In 2019, my dream came true! I'll let Wikipedia do the rest of the explaining: "Cadillac Ranch is a public art installation and sculpture in Amarillo, Texas. It was created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez, and Doug Michels, who were a part of the art group Ant Farm. The installation consists of ten Cadillacs (1949-1963) buried nose-first in the ground. Installed in 1974, the cars were either older running, used or junk cars — together spanning the successive generations of the car line — and the defining evolution of their tailfins."
