A treasure trove of abandoned, rusting Second World War-era cars has been discovered in a small quarry in rural central France.
Vincent Michel, Belgian PE teacher and photographer stumbled upon a French quarry, and found an entire stash of World War 2 cars that are beyond repair. They were likely hidden away at the start of the war to avoid them being requisitioned, and were forgotten about by the end. He captured the cars on film, most of them rusted beyond repair.
The 56-year-old urban explorer said several of the cars have been sold, but most will have to stay where they are. The exact location of the quarry is kept confidential. He added: ‘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.’
