Along the road near Alliance, NE I saw cars planted in an open field.  Carhenge represents Stonehenge.  Thirty-eight automobiles are placed to assume the same proportions as Stonehenge.
The artist of this unique car sculpture, Jim Reinders, experimented with unusual and interesting artistic creations throughout his life. While living in England, he had the opportunity to study the design and purpose of Stonehenge.
Carhenge was built as a memorial to Reinders' father who once lived on the farm where Carhenge now stands.  Told by the local city council to remove the sculpture, the family stood strong.
Art and the freedom of self expression.  Just a small piece of what I have seen the past two weeks from the seat of my motorcycle.

be strong, be safe, Carlan
