AutoBlog: Bad Brakes: Rust triumphs over Mercury Gran Marquis

Talk About Bad Brakes - click above image for high-res gallery

There's surprisingly little to say here. "D'oh!" comes to mind, as does "Epic Fail." A picture of a spazzed out cat captioned with, "I can haz brakes?" would also work. As would a photo of Jill Wagner getting a tetanus shot. Other than that, um, you would think someone would have noticed something before it got this bad, right?

We've heard about wearing 'em down to the rotors, but this is just silly. And for all you heroic defenders of the mighty Panther platform about to come out of the woodwork, we agree - it's probably an aberration. But still... yeesh. Thanks to VW Vortex forum member barry2952 and the Gluckster for the tip!

Anyone else having trouble with the physics of this?

I looked at the hi rez & there has to be some very thin "meat " left positioned under the pad backers(no pad left)

I'd like to know how the the outer ring of the rotor is still there. If it's rusted to the caliper than it means the car hasn't moved in a while. It's like the car sat water or something. Look at the rust on the bidy and stuff. Our older GM has less rust than that.
