There’s no doubt about it, mechanics have peculiar jobs.

They get to deal with people from all walks of life and they see new things every single day.

And some of the things they encounter are just plain STRANGE.

Take a look at these pics that highlight exactly what we’re talking about…

1. This is just bizarre.

It’s like an alien life form, also known as ALF.

Technically a carryout since it isn’t rolling anywhere.

2. Yikes! Now you have to get rid of that car.

Just leave it on the side of the road somewhere…

3. Never seen this before!

Better get ready for winter.

C/S to install new tire. C/DNS that the tire was filled with water in sub-zero temperatures. Had to cut the sidewall out with a Leatherman to get the tire off the wheel (after breaking the ice with a sledgehammer).

4. I see what you did there!

I’m glad this didn’t hit a person.

Good post or bad post?

5. He’s having a rough first day.

You okay down there, buddy? He’s gonna need a few days to get the hang of things.

Who’s the new guy?

6. This is what a burned out clutch looks like.

Learn how to drive stick before you buy a car with one!

21′ jetta 1.4 with 1300 miles. Probably the 6th clutch I’ve done in the last month. What makes people buy standard cars when they clearly don’t know how to drive stick is beyond me.

7. I think you misspelled something.

It sounds like you’re talking about a beer.

8. You definitely don’t see this every day.

What are the chances?!?!

Aircraft. Pilot landed with his breaks on.

9. This is what brilliance looks like, people.

Just let it sink in…

Ladies and gentlemen, we have achieved peak engineering.

10. That sure doesn’t look good.

How weird is this one?

Big brain time

11. Spice things up a little bit.

I like the looks of this!

Cam in for an appraisal to trade in and get the mirror cap replaced. hand painted a pterodactyl.

12. I think I might have an idea…

How long did you drive on it for?

How about your job?

Do you ever have to deal with some crazy stuff?

Or some crazy customers?
