The peculiarities of American gothic are inescapable in even a haphazard exploration of the Great Plains. But perhaps the most unusual creation to be found in the area is the brainchild of one Jim Reinders. Located near Alliance, Nebraska, Carhenge was built nearly 25 years ago by Reinders as a memorial to his late father. The monument is a replica of the pre-historic Stonehenge site in Wiltshire County, England. Except, the Nebraska version is comprised not of stone but of what remains of Detroit’s former glory. That’s right; Carhenge was constructed with old Buick, Pontiac, and Cadillac bodies. They are painted gray to simulate the monolithic stones that formed the original. In the area surrounding the replica, you will find other examples of “Car Art” arranged in various designs and decorated in a psychedelic painting style.
