I also grab images from the car while waiting (or even when someone else is driving), but it is clear that one must be a bit lucky to get a really good shot with an attractive and clean composition in such circumstances.

Photographers are supposed to move around to look for angles and avoid distracting elements.  In this case, the green shrubs in the foreground obstruct most of the cars directly in front of the main wing, but I think we can agree that if you had had the time to park, get out, select a focal length, move around and pick your vantage point and angle, you would probably have been able to find a view that does this building more justice.

Working with the material available here, I would go for a vertical view, cropping off the parking lot and cars behind the wing (crop just to the right of that shrub I mentioned).
