Mouse hunt! Found 3 live ones and multiple food stashes (how do mice get into a daily driver? So many of them? With that much food?)

When you find the missing timing belt cover bolt... because it pops up of it's own accord

fuzziest terminals I've ever seen

A snow sculpture made to trick the snow removal guys in Montreal, but gave the cops a laugh instead

Simon Laprise has sculpted a full-sized car replica out of snow to fool the snow removal guys.

"I am passionate about building and designing stuff," the 33-year-old Canadian woodworker from Montreal said. "I did the car to have fun expressing my creativity on that beautiful day."

It's illegal to park on the road during snow removal, and that's what probably attracted the police.

the police left a note saying "you made our night!!!" with a smiley face.

Santiago Chile car jackers thought they'd steal this Jeep grand Cherokee, the cop who owns it thought they were offering their legs for target practice

10 year old boy, before 6 am, gets his 1 yr old kid sister in the car, then drives off to visit his grandparents.

A ten-year-old Norwegian boy who drove his parents’ car into a snowy ditch offered an inventive excuse to police: he was a dwarf who had forgotten his driver’s license.

The boy – who lives near Dokka, a town 110kms (68 miles) north of Oslo – put his 18-month old sister into the car sometime before 6am, while his parents were still sleeping and set off to visit his grandparents in Valdres, about 60 kilometres away.

He drove more than 10 kilometres before veering off the road, where he was found by a snowplow driver who alerted police.

“The parents woke up and discovered that the children were missing and that someone had taken off with their car. They were pretty upset, as you can imagine,” said Christiansen.

Salute of the day to this bus driver who takes a plate to the chest, and still keeps the bus on course and doesn't wreck

Damn... these two couldn't see the truck that was right in front of them? It knocked their damn shoes off!

Pretty sure they moved a truck in park about 4 feet forward... so how damn fast were they going?

They hit that truck so damn had the back wheel of the bike gets tacoed!

interesting what you'll see in repair shops when they get innovative with used parts
