This is the haunting sight of a ‘car graveyard’ nestled in a Belgian forest, where vintage motors sit rusting among the fronds.
The old-fashioned vehicles are thought to have been left in the wood near the village of Chatillon by U.S. soldiers who were stationed in southern Belgium during World War II.
When the war ended, military troops were sent home, but could not afford to ship the cars they had bought and hid them in the forest.

My grandfather was a bombardier in a B-26 Marauderon a mission northwest of Aachen, Germany when his plane went down. On 18th November 1944 B-26 43-34456 of the 586th Bomb Squadron was hit by flak under the right engine blowing the outer wing panel off.
My mother was six months old when he died.
Seventy years before anyone else, Danielle’s grandfather says, “Hey, girl. Hey.”
Marine Mine Fireplaces
Fireplace made out of old naval mines. Yes, the boom boom kind.
Round mines are available in different sizes, shapes, materials (iron, brass, aluminum) with fireproof glass illuminators, and full shaped mines are available as an ellipsoid, with metal mesh doors and a different density of perforation.
Tables, beds, bathtubs, chandeliers, aquariums and more.

That is fantastic. I would love to have one of these and run that Gilligan’s Island episode on a loop beside it.
