Cars Abandoned in Belgian Forest

After reading the story and looking at the pictures; I think some of the vehicles were placed there years after WWII judging by the age of some vehicles. Still cool scene though.

Original story:
Quote:
Think traffic is bad in your area? These retro classics haven’t moved for 70 years.

The Chatillon Car Graveyard in Southern Belgium is one of the largest car burial sites in the world. Now a gathering place for tourists, collectors, and photographers, Chatillon is an eerie snapshot of a dark time in our planet’s history.

During WWII, when American troops were stationed in Belgium, servicemen began to acquire classic cars and collectables through a variety of means. Some bought, some stole, and others simply found during the chaos of war.

Then, in 1945, the Axis Powers surrendered. American troops were called back to the U.S., but it was too expensive to ship their prized automobiles back with them.

Military commanders ordered that the vehicles be left behind, so the soldiers drove the cars deep into the woods, hiding them in a woodland near the small village of Chatillon. Surely, they hoped one day they could return to collect their newly acquired transportation.
