Traffic Jam Stuck In Belgian Forest For 70 Years

Published 5 years ago

Though it looks like a scene from another apocalyptic flick, these rows of abandoned cars actually formed one of the most intriguing vehicle cemeteries in the world – the Chatillion Car Graveyard in Belgium.

They say that these cars were left during World War II by U.S. soldiers who were stationed in southern Belgium, only to retrieve the cars after the war. It is thought that when the military troops were sent home after the war they couldn’t ship the cars back with them so they decided to hide them in this forest. After then, the spooky collection had been enriched with other cars.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, many of the cars had been stolen by the locals and car collectors and the whole graveyard was removed in 2010 due to environmental reasons.
