148 Times Car Mechanics Took Pics Of What They Were Dealing With So Others Would Believe Them (New Pics)

Owning a car is both a blessing and a curse. When it’s in good condition, your ride can truly be a wonder to behold. Extremely convenient when you want to visit your loved ones, need to run some errands and, heck, it can also be extremely fun to drive.

Having said that, when you start hearing strange noises or get blinded by blinking warning lights, you know your car is begging for repair. And that’s where it gets amusing. Enter the Just Rolled Into The Shop subreddit, full of the most surprising and mysterious things auto mechanics encounter on the job.
