me thinks that someone was not paying attention to what they were "up to" :ugeek:

that is going to make a healthy dent in the shopowner's insurance budget.

I will have to call BS on that. No way that top bar on that lift is strong enough to do that to a car, it is there to hold up the hydraulic hose and leveling cables, it is not structural.

Probably right Dave but there is nothing "structural" in vehicles like that either.

Except that it is the bottom of the car, where the frame would be, that is crunched. Not the roof where there is much less structural support. The top of the car looks relatively undamaged.

Correct. I have seen cars so rusted you couldn't raise them on a frame lift but that one looks like it was dropped on a guard rail then brought in to "assess" the damage.

Yeah, I have to agree. If it was factual, I believe the crushing would be to the top of the vehicle. The bottom is supported in two places, but shows only one crush point. The other ones provided by WingAdmin, however, look entirely plausible, and would be a bit heart wrenching in several cases, but amusing to we who do not own them.

I don't know...look on the ceiling above the car. Right above the back end, where there would be weatherstripping or roof rails, there are two black marks on the ceiling.

I suspect the car contacted the ceiling, and the lift was not positioned correctly. With the force distributed widely across the ceiling/car roof, and the force concentrated on a small area on the bottom by the lift, the end result would be exactly what you see in that picture. A unibody car could easily be crushed in that manner by the force applied by the lift.

See that round bar below the top of the lift frame? It is a safety switch to stop the lift if a car contacts it.

Stop analyzing it, and enjoy. I think it is a sign of mis-spent youth collecting all those car workshop mishaps.

You might need a bit of clay bar to give it a really good shine!

And no lifts were injured in these incidents!
