Ok so this almost pisses me off. Talk about total neglect, this crap could have got someone killed. Both rear brakes are like this and the fronts are both metal to metal

Just take that rotor in for resurfacing and it will be good as new!

Seriously, that's impressive neglect.

If the right front caliper hadnt blown out and leaked all the fluid out I believe they would still be driving it. Surprisingly they are going to fix it. About $2500 total of everything it needs

I'm SURE it was NOT making any noise. Is the driver deaf? I see this neglect all the time with tractors - But this heap was on the street!
Ya can't fix stupid!

How is that even possible. Wouldn't brake performance be nil?

It still kinda had front brakes, until it blew the caliper out. It had to have very little braking ability for a very long time. The last oil change was 57,000 miles ago if that tells ya much.

appears to be an odd combination... are there shoes inside the drum? definitely not something I'd want to be driving!
