This is the haunting sight of Chatillon car graveyard in a Belgian Forest, where vintage cars sit rusting. These cars are said to be left in the woods by US soldiers, who were stationed in southern Belgium during World War II. When the war ended, military troops were sent home, but could not afford to ship the cars they had bought and hid them in the forest.
They hoped to collect them later, but none were ever retrieved as they had to take personal responsibility for all costs of the shipping. The vehicles have now corroded and parts have been taken by collectors.
At one point there were four car graveyards around Chatillon, and as many as 500 vehicles. Only one remain today. Over time, corrosion and decay have worn down the vehicles and what little remained were stolen by the locals and car collectors.
