It happened at end of World War II in Europe when the time had come home for the American soldiers. While they were joyfully and packing up to leave, the soldiers had their realization as they could travel from Belgium on their vehicles. They decided to hide their cars in a traffic jam situation in the forest until they would come back and get their belongings.

The soldiers never got chance to come back Europe after the World War II to get the cars. The cars have been converted into wreckage by traffic jam and it was decided to remove in 2010. Government of Belgium cleaned the whole forest in the mid of 2010. It ended the seventy years old antique and historical collection of vintage cars in forest.
