It was concrete blocks. 5 high and they were stacked on a pallet.

You might want to either proofread your posts a tad or buy a tape measure for the sake of accuracy.

Those are 8x8x16 CMU's and based on that pic, you do NOT have the left front on top of the last block, the tire is just gripping it with the forward half of the compressed contact patch and it's very clear in that pic at least that the right front is NOT firmly planted on the ground.
