    I cleaned out my car's trunk Saturday and found some interesting things.

    3 snow brushes with ice scrapers.
    3 umbrellas (one inside the car)
    2 Digital cameras that I had lost. :eek:
    3 cans of fix-a-flat

    Well that tells me that either your car has a Mary Poppins handbag as a trunk or that you havent looked in it for a while!!

    MIne has - 1 spare tire, 1 set of car mats, some mud, and reusable carrier bags.

    My trunk(s) have complete survival kits with everything needed to survive for weeks in any weather. Toss in a couple of 9’s and a few hundred rounds and I’m good to go!

    Well - I have (temporarily) 2 cars - one has jumpleads, spare tyre, tyre iron and jack in the boot (although I MUST get a triangle & safety vest as French law requires them). The other (my car of the last couple of years) has the lost tribes of fucking darkest Peru in it for all I know - there is some serious shite in there - triangle & safety vest, old bits of wallpaper, empty oil cans, half full oil cans, de-icer, water, a broken expired credit card that I used as a scraper til I bought one, cloths, an electric tyre pump, spare tyre, trye iron, jack, jill :wink:, a baloon pump, magazines, a bag of rubbish, a National Trust guide to the UK, a plank of wood, a broken umbrella, half a packet of 60x10 bolts, a glue gun, a broken glue gun, my last set of blood test results, er... that's all I can remember off the top of my head but there's a lot more.

    The only person I have seen with as much shite in the trunk of his car is HickBoy :biggrin:

    My SUV doesn't have a trunk:rolleyes:

    But in the back I keep booster seats for my kids.

    A jump kit and a flash light.

    That's about it I like to keep a clean car.

    I always keep a spare outfit in my trunk. You never know when you might need a wardrobe change.

    Currently, there is:

    1 Hollister hoody

    1 Calvin Klein track jacket

    1 pair of 7 for all Mankind jeans

    1 t-shirt

    A dj bag with cd jewel cases in it

    3 bottles of water

    1 bottle of Listerene (gotta keep the mouth fresh)

    6 plastic garbage bags (never know when you gotta dump a body. Lol!)
