Rust in peace: Haunting pictures of the Belgian ‘car graveyard’ where U.S. soldiers hid beautiful vintage motors after WWII

They had been stationed in the southern Belgium village of Chatillon
Shipping cars home was too expensive for the soldiers

They hoped to collect them later, but none were ever retrieved

The vehicles have now corroded and parts have been taken by collectors
Motors from soldiers based near the site at other times were added to the plot over the years
