This is the haunting sight of a ‘car graveyard’ nestled in a Belgian forest, where vintage motors sit rusting among the fronds.

The old-fashioned vehicles are thought to have been left in the wood near the village of Chatillon by U.S. 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.

Since then, other cars have been added to the cemetery, many by soldiers stationed in the area after the war.
