Nebraska's Carhenge, an automobile replica of England's Stonehenge, the prehistoric circle of stones, is up for sale. The asking price is $300,000.

Friends of Carhenge board of directors voted to place the 24-year-old tourist attraction, which consists of a circle of 38 cars, on the market.

The organization's president, Marcia Buck, says the quirky tourist attraction lacked volunteers and limited capital.

Carhenge was built in 1987 by the Jim Reinders family on land that Reinders' family once farmed just north of Alliance in western Nebraska. Reinders donated Carhenge and 10 acres of land around it to the Friends organization a few years later.
