In Sweden you'll find a strange graveyard of cars, many left behind from American GIs in World War II.

The forest in Bastnas paints somewhat of a grim picture with a plethora of Saabs, Volvos and Fords from the 50's and 60's covered in vegetation. Some have trees that have taken root and sprouted through them.

Once upon a time these cars roamed the streets in all their glory and if they could talk, they would have plenty of stories to tell. Now, they lie abandoned in a creepy site.

Final resting place

According to Atlas Obscura, the auto graveyard is said to be owned by a pair of reclusive brothers who live on the land. The sight of all the abandoned cars draws tourists from all over the world.
