Want to see how many cars one solid waste mogul collected? The new, spiffy LeMay - America's Car Museum will open its glass doors Saturday, June 2, although its chassis is being tested with an array of business meetings and conventions, weddings and, naturally, car club events.

The LeMay Marketing Department just sent us a list of facts about ACM's $60 million campus. Let's take a look:

35,000,000: Pounds of concrete used to make the building.

14,200: Total man hours to build ACM.

2,000,000: Approximate poundage of steel reinforcing used during construction.

150: Workers per-day (at peak) on the Museum construction site.

79,000: Total square footage of ACM's walls and roof.

2,980: Sheets of 1 1/8th-inch plywood used to build the roof.

1,923,406: Pounds of rebar utilized for the Museum.

24.4: Miles of steel studs used. (Laid end-to-end, they would almost stretch from Tacoma to Seattle.)

175: Average amount of vehicles that will be displayed each day at ACM.

300: Amount of cars that will fit on ACM's 3.5-acre grass show field.

391,590 sq-ft.(9 acres):  Dimensions of the entire ACM campus.

200: Volunteers required to support the new Museum's operations.

$50: Annual cost of ACM membership.

6-2-12: ACM Grand Opening.
