"Build it and They will come: Cadillac Ranch" Amarillo by richiecdisc
Amarillo Travel Guide: 112 reviews and 243 photos
The Yellow Rose of Texas, Amarillo, lies smack dab in the middle of the narrowest part of the state which spans a mere two and a half hours across. This makes the drive a lot less daunting than driving through from the Louisiana border to El Paso on Texas western perimeter, nearly a twelve hour jaunt. It also brings you along the Texas portion of Route 66. Other than that, there isn't much of a reason to embark across this very flat and barren stretch of the country. Oh, unless you like Cadillacs that is. Home to the Cadillac Ranch and in an odd way to one of the great embodiments of the American Dream, Amarillo is on a lot more people's lists of stops across the USA than it would otherwise be.
Well there she sits buddy just a-gleaming in the sun
There to greet a working man when his day is done
I'm gonna pack my pa and I'm gonna pack my aunt
I'm gonna take them down to the Cadillac Ranch
Eldorado fins, whitewalls and skirts
Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth
Well buddy when I die throw my body in the back
And drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac
The night before had been far better than our Little Rock excursion the previous day. Oklahoma City had proved more... more travel advice
