Man Discovered Stash of Cars Hidden in Abandoned Quarry since World War II

Belgian PE teacher Vincent Michel stumbled upon a hidden underground in a quarry in France, which has been hidden for nearly 80 years. Many believed that the cars were hidden away during World War II. Apparently, their owners did not reclaim them after the war.

The rusting collection was hidden to avoid it being captured by German soldiers.

“We suppose the cars were brought into the quarry at the start of the war to stop them being seized,” Vincent said. “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 photos show the rows of cars neatly parked in their underground hideaway. Michel revealed that since his discovery some cars had been taken out by the quarry owner to sell at auction, but many that are too fragile to move still remain in the quarry.
