VW is taking parking lots to a new level -- and will not be emptying them soon. As part of a sweeping program to buy back diesels in violation of emissions rules, VW is using 37 secure storage sites to house nearly 300,000 VW and Audi models. The sites include a shuttered suburban Detroit football stadium, a former Minnesota paper mill and a sun-bleached desert graveyard in California.
