The Chatillon Car Graveyard is a neatly arrayed collection of vintage cars abandoned in the woods near Chatillon, Belgium. The cars, originally some 500 in number, were supposedly left there by American soldiers who were stationed in Belgium after World War II. When the soldiers returned to the U.S., they were unable to ship the cars, so they left them neatly parked in the woods. Over the years the cars have dwindled due cleanup efforts and scavenging collectors. The cars are faintly visible on Google Maps.
