Explorer uncovers abandoned warehouse full of old motors – including a vintage Merc, sporty Alfas and 90s Fords

A man has discovered a hidden treasure trove of abandoned cars in a warehouse that look like they have just been abandoned.

Edou Hofstra, 25, from The Netherlands has a passion for exploring abandoned places and came across this gold mine next to a river that seems to have been untouched for many years.

A vintage Mercedes was just one of many classic engines found in storage

The intriguing images show a multitude of cars in storage, although it’s unclear why the owners just got up and left them behind.

Among the hordes of engines are a vintage Mercedes and an Alfa Romeo 156, but stripped-down car bodies can also be seen.

Some of the cars are definitely holding up better than others, with a Peugeot 206 CC looking the best – although a classic VW camper van can also be seen on the side panel.

Ford seems well represented in the camp with what appears to be a vintage Fiesta, a Mondeo and possibly an Escort model – all in need of some much-needed care.

Shockingly, part of the flooring gave way and several cars fell into the opening below.

The explorer explains: “You can see from the photos – there are lots of old abandoned cars and some cars are in better condition than others.”

“The entrance was on the water so we had to go into the water to get to the place.

“You can see the bottom has gone down and I think that’s one of the reasons it was abandoned. The reason I went there is because I love abandoned buildings and cars, so it was perfect.”

“The place is in good shape… so there’s no graffiti and no stuff that’s broken.”

“It’s special for Belgium because if there’s a nice place, it’s usually broken into and covered with graffiti tags within a few weeks.”
