Nebraska's Carhenge, an art installation built in 1987 by Jim Reinders, is up for sale. A 38-car tribute to the druid monument in England, Reinders built the automotive megalith on a farm once owned by his father on the outskirts of Alliance, Nebraska.

Not to be confused with the Cadillac Ranch in Texas, the site is owned and operated by the non-profit group, Friends of Carhenge, and it attracts some 80,000 visitors a year. Trouble is, the site doesn't charge admission and Friends of Carhenge is in debt, having taken out loans to maintain the structure.

The organization hopes to find a buyer who can fund amenities like a campground and go kart track on the property, which would give visitors reason to pay admission. Check out the Friends of Carhenge website for additional information.

      Why would anyone want to go camping at Carhenge?

      Good question, walthamdan, though it would be cooler to camp out here than at the Barbara Walters Memorial in downtown New York City, eh?

        Great, then YOU can pay for the maintenance of carhenge instead of posting useless sh.it on AB.

      Oh, I'm sure that method of hyperbole will really work, too, to make oodles and scaboodles of money. Right. I'll go visit Carhange when I'm in NE and drop quarters in a tin can for them, if that will help. Let's just not let this thing...crap out, car nuts.

      I used to own a "carhenge", every 3 months the mobile crusher came & I had to start all over again. I was always glad for the visit.

      Not a bad place....but not worth any money! Just keep the place operating for the small town around. A little silly :)
