Cadillac Ranch on the outskirts of Amarillo, Texas was built in 1974 by Stanley Marsh III, a helium millionaire. The cadillacs are supposed to represent the “Golden Age” of American Automobiles (1949 through 1963). There are ten graffiti-covered cars nose-down and half-buried in the dirt. They are facing west, supposedly at the same angle as the Cheops Pyramids.
