A business with too much overhead? !0{

OK, HOW did they get them up there? Maybe the Tudor is against an elevator door, but then it would block the elevator.

OK, looked at it again, looks like a Buick dealership, maybe those are all Buicks? Storeage? Other brands, as maybe some are used cars? Looks like one on the right side has a "sunroof" towards the back of the top.

Tim,

Instead of a sunroof I think it is a pool of rain water on a sagging roof.

If you look at the windshields on most of the cars they are very dirty or dusty so my first guess would be that a storage area for the dealership. My second guess would be that they let them out to watch the Fords go by! :-)

There's a bunch of Ts up there. Touring car to the very far left has a hole in the top (you can see the shadows of just the top bows on the wall next to it). Coupe next to it is a T, as is the touring immediately next to it on the right. I'm thinking it's their used lot - what they took in on trade.

Touring at the far lower right corner of the roof is also a T.

Cool picture. Wish we could find a roof top like that. There are T fords out there in storage. Just getting people to turn loose of them.

Dennis, I think you're right! Just noticed another one, in the foreground, about in the middle looks like water standing there too. Good eye man! This is a neat picture.

"All ran when parked",so the seller says.

Yeah, but the car at the far left definitely has a "sun roof" on it.
I would agree that this appears to be "long-term" parking of some very used automobiles. I count 39 cars on that roof--wonder if the trusses were designed for all that added weight? Also note that it will be difficult to maneuver any of them out to what appears to be the elevator door. They did bother to erect a 'safety railing" around the roof though--note that it appears to be just sitting on the roof.
