Today, under the incredibly big sky of West Texas, we visited the world famous
'Cadillac Ranch', the art project sponsered by Stanley Marsh 3.
The cars are supposed to be buried at the same angle as the sides of the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt. When I asked about the location of the cars a local good ol' boy said "We got us an eccentric billionaire oilman out here"! I already knew Marsh had a rep for eccentricity, even going by Marsh 3 rather than III, as in the third. He claims that is pretentious.
Lexi climbed atop one of the cars for a cool shot. Yes, it is allowed, and you can add your own spray painting tags. Best of all, it is free! The most amazing thing I saw and missed getting on film was a young man, either extremely talented as a gymnast or insane, who stood atop the car and suddenly did an amazing 360 degree flip off the side, landing perfectly on his feet! I was actually astounded by that.
Deanna, Lexi and Alan atop the Cadillac Ranch!
Of course we tagged the cars in an appropriate fashion.
