Abandoned World War II Cars That Were Stuck in Belgium for Over 70 Years

The Chatillon Car graveyard in Southern Belgium is one of the World’s largest car cemeteries where there are as many as 500 retro vehicles that were left behind and abandoned by U.S soldiers during World War II. When the war ended, these soldiers were sent home but sad to say, they were not able to bring home the cars they bought. Shipping cars back to the U.S was very expensive and most them could not afford to ship so they just hid them in the forest.

Since these lines of cars were left behind in an overgrown forest, the branches and vines of surrounding plant leaves had grown their way down into the cars, twisting around the rusted, broken down metal. It is also said that the cars were left behind in a hurry by the U.S soldiers before going to war.
