Its close to Highway circle, Bannimantap. I'm sharing the Google location of the place, but it might be a bit off. Use this to get a rough bearing, the garage is somewhere along the same road.

Couldn't resist sharing this article here. A sad sight indeed!

" These spooky apocalyptic images are not a scene from “Walking Dead”, they were actually taken at one of the biggest car cemeteries in the world – the Chatillion Car Graveyard, Belgium.

According to an urban legend these cars were left behind by US soldiers from World War II, who could not ship them back to the US so they decided to hide them in a forest until they could come back and retrieve them. The locals disagree and say that it’s simply an old car dump of vehicles made after the WWII.

At one point there were four car graveyards in Chatillon with as many as 500 retro vehicles. Unfortunately, most of the cars were stolen or removed by the locals and due to environmental issues the whole graveyards was cleared in 2010. "

Edit: more pics and information can be found here.

Most of the cars are indeed very post-WWII. Do I spot a blue FIAT 1100 ?

Talking of auto graveyards, some of them hold desirable ghosts

A mid 1950's Plymouth Suburban spotted in this pitiable condition in Kolkata, a few days back.

Wasn't this posted earlier as a govt. owned car that was up for auction? Surprisingly no takers?! When someone or the other is always asking for vintage/classic cars for sale these days!
