The U-Drop Inn, also known as Tower Station and Tower Café, was built in 1936 in Shamrock Texas, along the historic Route 66 highway. An unusual example of art deco architecture applied to a gas station and restaurant.

CADILLAC RANCH

 

Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac Ranch along Route 66

My Pencil Drawing, of the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas, along Route 66.  This is the always changing, interactive, installation, along the Mother Road.

“Cadillac Ranch” is the name of a Bruce Springsteen song on his 1980 album The River,¬† Cadillac Ranch is also the inspiration for a song performed by Christian Rock band Family Force5 called “Cadillac Phunque” There is also a song called “Cadillac Ranch” by John Stewart, on his album¬†Rough Sketches, which is about Route 66.¬† In addition there is a song by Chris Ledoux, called “Cadillac Ranch”.

Cadillac Ranch can be seen in the musical video for the song “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” by Cage the Elephant. All outdoor shots in the 2009 video of¬† Brooks and Dunn’s¬† song “Honky Tonk Stomp” were filmed at the Cadillac Ranch.

Cadillac Ranch has appeared in American popular culture media. A tribute to the¬†Cadillac Ranch was featured in the Walt Disney and Pixar film Cars. The fictional town of Radiator Springs, sits at the edge of an area referenced on a map as the “Cadillac Range”, and throughout the movie, rock formations shaped like the upended cars can be seen as a horizon backdrop. Much of the film’s plot deals with the dying towns along Route 66.
