"Archeologists have discovered cave art which indicates that Neanderthals were more advanced than had previously been thought."

This is an example of the new Direct Recycling® program funded by a $22 million government grant in an effort to lower recycling costs....

Ah yes, this is an 18m high sculpture made from 60 automobiles embedded in 18000 tonnes of concrete. It's titled "Long Term Parking" by Arman. You will notice no vehicle younger than 1982, the year of its creation.

PS - Shame I can't see a '63 Fiat 1100, my first car. I was so intimidated by any larger-engined Fiat 1500 that I made a silicone mold to cast the fake badge "1300 INIEZIONE" - good that I could repeat the casting (in solder) because they were a prime theft target.

Looks like some primitive cave art of ancient, pre-electric cars.

Relativity-PL nailed it

This is a sculpture called Long Term Parking and it is located at the Château de Montcel in Jouy-en-Josas, France. This sixty feet high sculpture consists of sixty mostly French cars set in 40,000 pounds of concrete. It was created in 1982 by a French-born American artist named Armand Pierre Fernandez (1928 – 2005), or simply Armand*.

Yes, Johnny, you can get a car when you turn 16.

Seriously, I mean it. It's set in stone.

The Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI?? I almost thought this had something to do with the Edison-Ford winter estates in Florida.
