Cadillac Ranch----reported missing

CLUES: Cadillac Ranch is along I-40 (south side)just west of Amarillo, TX. You will need to be on the access road by the highway to park at the box's location. As I approach the rising Cadillacs, I look to the west. I count ten cars back. I think I will leave my mark on that one. As I spray paint my nick name on the car, my mother is "decorating" another car with her name. I think to myself, I am going to have to be sneaky when I hide this box-there is a tour bus full of people coming to look at the sculptures. I see a huge dust devil forming in the empty wheat field where the cadillacs are buried. I kneel down and place the box by the control arm of the car, on the ground. It is behind some wild plants that are growing up against the car. I cover with rocks and think how exciting it will be for the next person to find it.
