Abandoned 1930’s era cars discovered in old quarry

A previously undiscovered collection of abandoned cars from the World War Two-era has been discovered in a small quarry in rural central France.

It is believed that they were hidden away at the start of the war to avoid them being requisitioned. The cars have been rusting away in the same spot for over 70 years now.

The treasure trove of cars was photographed by Urban explorer and photographer, Vincent Michel, a Belgian PE teacher.

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

“Shortly after we were there the owner pulled a few of them 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.”
