(Newser) – If you’ve ever wished you had a circle of cars painted gray and piled on top of each other, now’s your chance: Nebraska’s vehicular tribute to Stonehenge is for sale. It’s been listed with a land company for an asking price of $300,000, the JournalStar reports. The tourist destination, built in 1987 by an artist during a family reunion, draws some 80,000 visitors a year.

The nonprofit that owns it is selling “because we are somewhat limited in money,” says its president. “We can’t develop the land as we should.” The group would like to see an RV campground, convenience store, and go-cart track located on the grounds. A former president of the group is unhappy it's for sale; she says the nearby town of Alliance doesn’t appreciate the site. “Basically, it's in a small-town community that has never totally understood the gift horse they were given,” she notes. As it stands, a visit to Carhenge is free.
