I still have my CDL B + H, but I have not driven in almost 7 years, so that would make sense.

Funeral Procession lead by 2 motorcycles in the rain, followed by a hearse, followed by a motorcycle pulling the casket in a trailer with glass sides. I didn't take a picture, well because that would be disrespectful. I thought it was a cool way for them to remember the deceased.

He at some point drilled holes in the rim and used wood screws to attach a hubcap (can see remnant of it). They must go right into the bead of the tire

Told the customer their car wasn't really safe and when the frame drops it'll probably pull the steering shaft apart.


Their mechanic said it was perfectly fine as is, nothing to worry about.... Both sides looked like that.

Yeah but when you drive it the vehicle weight pushes that all back together, so it'll be fine....until it isn't.
