In the middle of a small forest in the village of Chatillon in southern Belgium, there is a cemetery of rusty cars. These vehicles once belonged to American soldiers stationed in the area. When the Second World War ended, they returned to the US, but the cost was great for carriage. The officers decided to land in Belgium. So they parked on a hill and somehow hidden from the common view. In order for a soldier to take the vehicle, he had to personally take over the transport costs. Ultimately, neither car did not go to the United States. In the forest is estimated that there are about 500 cars.
