Could you check my brakes? They squeak a bit.

An acquaintance of mine in Utah has friends that own an auto repair shop.

A lady brought in a mid-90s Cadillac to have the alternator replaced.
No big deal, right? Right.

While she was there, she asked them to check out the brakes because they squeak a bit.

Actual picture of her car:







Yeah, I'd say they were squeaking a bit. LOL

I've only seen that one other time in my life! And the car still stopped pretty decent. Only the worn off section was on the back side.

Its things like this that make me wonder how the car was acting in order for that to have gone unnoticed for so long.
