Entrance to the Car Forest. International Car Forest of the Last Church

Access to this area is very rugged and might be impassable in inclement weather. Not for vehicles with low ground clearance! Be aware this city generates a large part of their budget from speeding tickets. It's apparently very hard for drivers used to 65 to slow to 25.

International Car Forest of the Last Church

Forty cars poke out of the ground, and the site is open at all times for your viewing pleasure. Artists have painted these cars, and bands play to audiences there. This automotive arboretum is such an odd beauty that you must not miss it. The nature of the locale will make you glad you stopped. Cars are welcome.

[Chad Sorg, 03/02/2013]

The cars have been embedded, nose down, along a dirt road in the Nevada scrub. Kind of like Cadillac Ranch, only less linear and less of a spray paint mess. The cars have been here since at least 2011.
