Wouldn't 'garage' be enough?

And is subject to regional dialect:  In WI it is called a parking ramp, or just "ramp"

I even got a dumber question.  Why are you even asking this question?  If someone else here on this forum came up with this question you would be the first to heckle them and make jokes about this type of question.

Hey roadman - Please be civilized.  This are no dumb questions --sso

"Garages" were also places where folks had their cars repaired, so I suppose there needed to be some additional emphasis.

dumb question: why did dumb change meaning from "not able to talk" to "lacking intelligence"?

Locking - I can see this is going to go nowhere.  The topic is legitimate. Think about what you post before posting
