This is another Route 66 curiosity located west of Amarillo along the south side of I-40. This modern art sculpture was created in 1974 by the art group coop "Ant Farm" representing the rise and fall of the American (read Detroit) automobile. Cadillacs dating 1949 through 1963 are represented here. The historic timing represents the shift from gas guzzling, rust prone, built in obsolesce designs from America to the smaller, gas efficient imports (read Japanese).

The original location for this sculpture was 2 miles east of the current location, but was moved to the current location in 1997 to accommodate the urban sprawl of Amarillo.
