I was a mechanic at the chevy dealer in wolfboro many years ago and we had those pits. Made certain jobs easy but really was dangerous aside from the fumes there was the issue of falling in or driving a car over the edge. At the time it was called Kamler Chevrolt and Buick and was located sort of behind Hunters grocery. (was it called that then, 40+ years ago?)
