Private security is a huge business, and being safe while you’re driving is just as important as walking around outside. One mechanic had a Tahoe come in that was built for keeping people as safe as possible – in the picture you can see the driver’s side window is about an inch of solid glass.
Apparently, the rest of the vehicle was just as armored. Whether it was an A-list celeb who used this car, or it was for someone who just can’t stop looking over his or her shoulder, it’s sure to be a nice load off the mind.
Who Knows What Happened
This car is a rental that someone checked out, and then the police brought it back. That is not hail damage. The side of the car, the windows, and the tire all took damage from a shower of bullets.
These kinds of pictures always bring up so many questions – was the person who rented the car involved in the shootout? Was this just a random event? Did the driver encourage this kind of activity? We'd hate to think so, but there are lots of kinds of people out there. Maybe they just hated Malibus.
You'd Think This Would Be More Common
That little compartment on the passenger side of the vehicle will often contain maps, charging cords, napkins, the car's registration, and a lot of other stuff, but they rarely contain their namesake: gloves. The mechanic who submitted this picture had been working for sixteen years, and this was the first time he had opened the glove compartment to actually find gloves.
And there are even two different gloves, most likely his and hers options. Maybe the car was brought into the shop to fix a broken heater. That or this was a classy convertible.
That Will be a Hundred Dollars
If this list can tell you anything, it's that cars are complicated. If you don't know how to rotate your tires or remove your car's battery, you can go to a mechanic and get it fixed for a fee...and then there are the stories of people who don't seem to even want to learn about their car.
Such as this story, which begins with a car's passenger-side window stuck halfway open and ends with the mechanic turning off the window lock. Thankfully, not a big deal.
Going Above and Beyond
This picture comes from a mechanic who said that a sweet old lady brought the car in for some work, and also asked them to apply the license plate decal for her – her tired old bones made it hard to bend down and work on the ground.
The result was this inch-thick pile of stickers, which must date back decades, likely back to the twentieth century. We wouldn't be surprised if it goes back even further. Of course, the mechanic probably cleaned all the old stickers off, but not before snapping a pic for posterity.
