France Some Old Cars in the woods, France - September 2015

Recommended Posts

Tucked away in the middle of some woodland was this abandoned car graveyard full of old vehicles rotting away. Even having been given the exact coordinates for this place I still managed to walk past it twice it was that well hidden and overgrown… hard to conceive how the cars ever made it to this post and it gives a good idea to how long these cars have sat here… The vehicles were in varied conditions some being in quite a restorable position with more than a few past salvaging… I really enjoyed seeing the really old one with hand painted number plates! really something else! I’m no good with cars but have so far identified; Citroën Clover 5 CH, Renault nn, Citroën Rosalie, Tube Citroën and Simca 5

Citroen H Van and an Opel Rekord are two of the others there.


Not much into the 'vintage' pre-war cars myself but that is a great collection.

      Was  reminded that I didn't posted anything yet so, here's a post of a recent visit to this mine. This one is not the safest one :-) . Some parts are  already collapsed.
      There are several levels but the lower did we skip. Heard that the air quality is not the best there and we didn't bring the rope ladder .
      Was nice  to explore. Hope you enjoy looking at this.
