The Volkswagens are the vehicles the German automaker has been forced to buy back from customers following its diesel emissions scandal.
The Silverdome lost its main tenant when the Lions moved to Ford Field in 2002
the family of Canadian developer Andreas Apostolopoulos, bought the Silverdome in 2009 at auction from the City of Pontiac for $583,000.
A Volkswagen spokesman said Wednesday that the automaker is storing its repurchased diesels at sites across the country including the Silverdome. The plan is to keep the cars at those sites until a vehicle modification is available that could allow them to be resold. If such a modification isn't possible, the cars would then be sent out and recycled.
