Buried Combines

Postby Charlie » Sat May 21, 2011 3:11 pm

On one of our Route 66 trips, we saw some combines that were buried "Cadillac Ranch" style. They were not right on Route 66 but were somewhere in Texas or New Mexico. Does anyone know where they were because I'd like to see them again.

Here you go, Charlie. Use the directions from this site to verify via Google Street View, then plot your route accordingly:

JND - I'm pretty sure those are the ones. We were following our nose back up to I-40 from Palo Duro Canyon. If I can find it again, I'll send you a picture. Thanks.

I think maybe those are the same ones JNB found but that web-site had hwy 1151 northeast of Amarillo rather than southeast.

What happened to JNB's post?

Now that it's deleted, it's silly to reference, but as I recall, it was very relevant, just lacked exact directions.

I deleted that on purpose since it was a bit inaccurate as to directions and your post pretty well covered it.....much better.....Thanks much, JND ! :lol:
