Belgian Man Discovers Stash Of Cars Hidden In Abandoned Quarry Since WWII by Explorers(m): 8:46am On Jan 02, 2018
Belgian man who was exploring an abandoned quarry came across a stash of cars that had been hidden away since the start of World War Two.


Belgian PE teacher Vincent Michel described his amazement at coming across the rusting vehicles that had lain undiscovered for 70 years.


They were likely hidden at the quarry in central France at the start of the war to avoid them being requisitioned, and were forgotten about by the end.

Let me go and check this abandoned quarry I saw while traveling to Hong Kong the other day.

We never can tell, I might find some abandoned common sense stashed away there.
Some people really need it.

'We suppose the cars were brought into the quarry at the start of the war to stop them being seized.



'After the war, nobody took them out from there, forgotten forever.

The owner of the quarry added a few more cars some years later.'


Almost all the cars were empty, with the shells the only things remaining.'

The 56-year-old urban explorer said several of the cars have been sold, but most will have to stay where they are


Some have been pulled out to sell at auction, but most of the cars are still at peace inside the quarry, too damaged to move.




'It was an unbelievable experience, and I really hope to find a similar place in the future.'

They could: 1]turn the site of the findings into a museum of sorts for people who love these sort of things. 2]give the cars a sort of rejuvenation or up-grade like the sort they do on MTV's "love-vendor My Ride" and auction them off to antique car collectors. 3]sell the cars' carcasses to metal buyers/dealers. #Ironkwondom Aluminiumkwondo Like those guys. However you choose to look at this,this is still a valuable discovery. My 5 naira.

Exactly! 10 to 20yrs ago as teenagers, we were crazy about and wanted to ride our parents cars (with tough conditions, or codedly grin). How many of such people want to be seen riding those cars today? undecided

Even worse, 50yrs from now, people will wonder how come we built such ugly or funny-looking antique contraptions inorder to limit ourselves to driving on land . . . rather than fly.

@Op,
I wonder what they'd do with it..
Convert it to a museum.?
Sell it to collectors?
I doubt if they'd auction them in that condition.

Can relate, Peugeot 504&mercedes 200/230e.


Ocassions in secondary schools like Harvest, Inter house sport or end of the year party, the feeling when you are attending such ocassion with your guys in dads car.


My dad cruise V.Boot was strictly for palace, once in a month.



Steal the key, cruise the town with my chick and return the car before 4pm.

Park the car exactly the way dad parked it, sweep to clean the tyre tracks, return the keys and bribe my young ones to keep shut.
