Hidden From Hitler But Ravaged By Time — Incredible Stash Of Cars Found In Quarry

Written By:

Vincent Michel, a Belgian physical education teacher was exploring a quarry in central France when he came a stash of cars that were hidden from the invading Nazis during the Second World War.

The stash of cars were likely hidden at the quarry in central France as the Nazis swept across France in 1940 in the early stages of the Second World War, to avoid them being requisitioned.

During the war, the Nazis seized many cars and used them to transport troops and high ranking members of the army and the government.

However, by the time got over five years later in 1945, the cars were forgotten and lay inside the quarry at the mercy of the elements and Father Time.

The owner of the quarry added a few vehicles of his own some time later. He also pulled out a few of them and sold them off at an auction.

Almost all the cars are now empty shells rusting away and too damaged to move as Nature slowly but surely reclaims them but there are still some that do retain a few hints of colour.

Michel hopes to discover something similar in the future to this unbelievable stash which would have been forgotten if he hadn't come across them.
