Inside the creepy ammunition plant with 1,800 motors abandoned in car graveyard

A creepy old ammunition plant containing more than 1,800 abandoned classic motors has been discovered in a car graveyard.

The fascinating discovery was made by YouTuber "Mr Goodpilers" in Sidney, Nebraska after he uncovered an eery ammunition plant from World War II, which contained used vintage cars from 1930s to 1970s.

The video, which has been viewed over 200,000 times, is captioned: "Abandoned WWII Munitions Plants with a thousand Antique cars & Truck Collection! 1930s to 1970s!"

'Mr Goodpliers', the YouTuber who regularly posts videos of abandoned classic cars left dumped in garages and barns, was left astounded at the amount of cars found on the site.

In the video he says: "This is by far the largest collection I have ever filmed."

The collection is found in Sidney, Nebraska and contains between 1,500 to 1,800 classic cars on display.

However, there are fewer classic cars as the owner auctioned dozens of motors earlier this year.

A number of the creepy cars include a rare 'Diamond T' truck in lots of different shapes and sizes as well as International Harvester pickup trucks.

In addition, there is also Ford cab-over trucks from the 1930s, a 1937 Chevrolet dairy truck and a 1962 Corvair Rampside haulier in green.

Many of the cars still had their steering wheels inside, old radios, and even some of the seat padding were still intact.

The stainless steel paintwork on the majority of cars had faded away but many of the tyres and original windows were still on show - even after all these years.

Car fanatics were quick to praise the YouTuber for the discovery as one user commented: "Thanks for yet another great commentary on an amazing collection of vehicles."

Another added: "So many great American cars, thanks for the viewing and your amazing knowledge of all the cars and trucks amazing how you know so many models and the little details from year to year.

""Please keep up your videos. I would love to get a car or truck one day shipped to Australia."

Fellow car enthusiasts were impressed with the variety of cars on show as the classic motor collection was lauded by viewers.

One user wrote: "Just amazing...thank you for documenting these vehicles...well done...just incredible what this fellow collected..."
