No other ancient monument ever attracted as much as Stonehenge. In the United States there are several copies of the landmark, which dot Washington, Nebraska and New Hampshire states, to name but a few. Built of concrete, plaster-covered steel and styrofoam they often are a replica…rebuilt with American standards. Carhenge, anyhow, is for sure the most bizzarre copy of all. The idea of creating this unique car sculpture belongs to western Nebraska resident Jim Reinders.
Built in 1987, during a six days’ span by 35 family members, it’s made of 38 cars spray – painted in gray, in a circle of 96 feet in diameter.
