Cars Land Cadillac Range Progression in 12 Pictures (Wide shots)

One of the most striking visuals of Cars Land, that we have been able to see so far, is the Cadillac Range. This mountain range is the backdrop for the land and features tail fins from 1957 to 1962 Cadillacs. Below are a dozen pictures showing the progress from a fairly wide perspective (anyone interested in a close up view of a fin or two over time?) These were pulled from the Construction Progress section so if you would like to see a more detailed look at the progress be sure to stop by if you have not.

October 23, 2010 – About 19 months till opening you can see the outlines of the fins starting to take shape.

March 10, 2012 – Only three months till opening and the range is done. Hard to get a clear shot from in the park now with all the trees from the angles that are currently accessible.
