Battlefield of Cars

In the aftermath of WWII there were a lot of things hidden and forgotten in time. One of them being the “car graveyard” in Chatillon, Belgium. During WWII many American soldiers had acquired cars and trucks to drive around war-torn Europe but as the war came to an end none of these cars were able to go back to the states with the soldiers. Many car graveyards arose where cars were parked in rows that stretched for miles all waiting to be picked up and shipped to the States. As the cost of shipping a car would have been well above what most could afford all the cars stayed in these forests and were eventually lost to nature. A total of 4 lots were found in Belgium but most deteriorated leaving only the one in Chatillon. As many as 500 antique cars remain today provided a cool site to visit!
