  1. Strange, I was convinced this would be found in no time.
    It’s such a distinct feature:
    long and dark, shiny and black…

  2. DOH! This is the Cadillac Ranch outside Amarillo, Texas.

    I was fooled by my own preconception that the cars were placed in a circle, not a straight line.

  3. darn, I suspected it but was not able to find that sculpture without having a name or place.

  4. :-))

    So that hint really helped.
    For those that don’t get it:
    “long and dark, shiny and black” is a sentence from Bruce Springsteens ‘Cadillac Ranch’.

    When I bought his album ‘The River’ in 1980 and saw the sleeve-photo of this place, I almost couldn’t believe it was real. That someone actually ‘planted’ ten cadillacs.

    It’s one of those places I would like to visit, somewhere in the future (it’s a long list).
