How do you these many cars... "someplace else?" in time?
I can't imagine the manpower, realestate and time (never mind the logistics) it would take to have these cars moved. I sincerely doubt that 1/2 of these could be moved in time. Sure, more the more expensive ones, but that's why insurance exists.
