Carhenge: Another Roadside Attraction

Like many roadside attractions in America, Carhenge appears to be a case of “If you build it, they will come.”  This art installation by Jim Reinders is a replica of Stonehenge with old cars standing in for monoliths.  A bit of whimsy on the edge of the sandhills of Nebraska.

Somehow being at this imaginative, quirky place inspired a playful mood.  My sister-in-law and I pulled out our iPads and used the Photo Booth app to exaggerate the odd quality of the art installation.  We laughed and laughed.

    I wonder if he did this before or after the Cadillacs got “planted” in Texas? There’s something about Stonehenge that still captures the imagination, isn’t there? There’s a duplicate here in the Texas Hill Country (on a smaller scale) but I like the cars much more.
