There are a lot cheaper ways to warehouse things than to design a Taj Mahal.

For the cost of this facility a proper museum quite possibly could have been built. That's why we have the Smithsonian to handle things like this.

We built plenty of roads & bridges but just like the job creators they are in other countries. :mad:
The museum is in Fairfax, I don't think anything but foreign luxury cars are allowed in there? I wonder if there was any funding approved or if they just put it on Master Card?
