Deep into the south of Belgium there is a huge yunkyard/graveyard full of army trucks and cars fallen into decay. This yunkyard is named "Traction Sud" and is in fact a garage for repair and reconstructing of old vehicles. The large back yard of this garage has a wide diversity of abandoned and disused army trucks and cars. There are also a lot of fire trucks and ambulances to find. Including a few red cross Volkswagens. By far the most of these trucks and cars are from the former DDR, as you can recognize by the old DDR logo's. Some of the trucks are placed in a strategic way into the open fields, others are randomly parked under the trees and a few of them are totally covered into the bush.

All though most of the engines are damaged and that there is no petrol loaded, some of them still have the starting keys into the igniter. It's fascinated to see these army trucks into the bush, green on green. As far as my knowledge goes, i have seen; Tatra 813, Magirus-Deutz crane trucks, Volkswagen Beetles, GMC M-135 and Daimler-Benz.

As you can expect the owner of the yunkyard is not happy with the attraction of urban explorers. It's supposed to stay hidden and uncovered into the bush. Hopefully the camouflage will do!
