For more than 50 years, a group of rusted cars has quietly made their home in a wooded parking lot in the Bastnas district of southern Sweden. Despite the effects of time, rain, and vibrant foliage, each car has acquired a charming patina. And yet, the graceful contours and intricately crafted design details of these World War II-era cars remain proudly enduring.
Originally built by two Swedish brothers to accommodate abandoned cars, the parking lot has evolved into a dream collection for classic car enthusiasts. It boasts renowned brands such as Opel, Ford, Volvo, Buick, Audi, Saab and Sunbeam. The extraordinary collection includes cars with trees growing through them, vines entwined around the seats and steering wheels, and vibrant green moss covering the entire body. According to the Daily Mail, if these cars were to be sold for scrap alone, their collective value would exceed $160,000.
