Survey: What do you keep in your car?

Just a late night silly survey. If you own a car, what are some of the items in it right now (or usually)?

Mine has a toddler seat, bit of trash jammed under the seats, toys out the ying-yang (kids), black tribal skull seat covers, a life sized (and realistic looking) Iguana stuck up on the dashboard (good luck charm, plus I love the looks it gets), first-aide kit, CDs (most now loose without covers and sliding around in the glove dept. box to my husband's horror), and other needed stuff for emergencies and 'just in case' scenerios.


Now this was fun to read (not said sarcastically), and I read all 39 replies so far. Some real funny ones, even the serious ones were fun to see what ya'll hide in those cars. (or refuse to throw out lol) We'll have to do something like this again soon. Peace out darlings.

    Well I really need to clean out my car. I have to have the back seats lying down so I can fit the entire front bumper bar I ripped off by accident in the boot (it's been there 4 a month. I have no where else to keep it until I get time to take the car to get fixed! So a 5 seater car is now a 3 seater car... It's bad & embarrasing...Also I have random clothes books rubish...

    Well, this is going to be a long answer....

    I have an SUV so I have plenty of "toss it in the back" storage. At present i have 4 cd cases, cell phone and charger, my apron for work (waitress), 3 framed prints that are gorgeous in black and white, a zillion coke cans and cups, tons of empty Marlboro lights boxes, and 12 bags full of clothing to be taken to goodwill as soon as I get off my butt and do it.

    Let's see...

    spare tire, floor jack, 4-way tire iron, tire pressure gage, a half a bottle of windshield washing fluid, a few bottles of oil, a spare bottle of trans fluid, a spare bottle of power steering fluid, roadside emergency kit, jumper cables, a rag, Kleenex, snow-scraper (still in there from winter, and it's gonna stay there so it'll be there when I need it), WD-40, some change, and some boxes to keep the spare fluids organized.

    I know it's a lot, but I like to be prepared.

    At a wager it really is because they don't need others to be certain their stupid questions and answer, it truly is why i don't worry there. I in easy words go if a sprint asks a question there, and that i'm hoping they have the intelligence to a genuine looking one Chetak
