Wow! looks really great.

IT seems like there are two escalators; the one going up is filled with nice cars like this one. And then the other escalator going down, filled with cars that are being left to rot into oblivion. Maybe some day all that will be left are restored cars, and cars too rough to be restored... Oh well, it's Friday and happy hour is almost here.
