Default Righto, which one of you was this lucky bugger? What goodies have you found hiding in your ride?

I just read this thread about bags of fibrous stuff found in a forum member's Escape

It reminded me of a post on another forum a few weeks ago looking for legal advice.



The only thing worth anything that I've found in my Futura was the usual nest of coins under the back seat. That was a lot more pleasant than the bag of bananas down the side of the quarter panel in the boot. Urgh.

Not my car, but I was in a workshop once and a guy brought a car in with a foul smell in the cabin and asked if we could find out what it was. Turned out someone had tied an octopus under the seat frame.
Not lucky, and not goodies, but definitely weird.

I restored a Mustang a while ago and found 2 (used) and 1 (new, in the packet) condoms under the centre console. Must have a big night.

Had gas tank removed from my wagon, and found $2.50 plus a new top coolant hose. Winning.

1x live 7.62 round rolling around in the spare wheel well of my Mustang, so much for border checks. Oh and some yank coins and a cd in the player.

Found a bag of cash under the spare tyre in an AU. It was like somebody's float from a swap-meet or similar, a couple of hundred in a variety of bills and change

Found a big diamond engagement ring in the map pocket of a newly purchased car, lucky I didn't vacuum it up. Thought what do I need it for anyway so took it back to the previous owner. She was stoked, had been missing for a couple of years apparently.

We had a young lady drop off her car to work after someone had a minor crash into the rear of her car.
Emptying the boot out among all her clothes and shoes were some fluffy handcuffs, dildos and a whip.

Bong and a balaclava are the best finds I've had.

cleaned out the pouches behind the front seats of the G6et. Got pricked by one of those blood sugar pens.

Not so much inside the car but in a petrol tank on my XB. After draining it and taking it out I could here stuff rolling around inside it. Turns out there was a couple pieces of small gravel in there and a vintage matchbox car. Someone's grandson would have been shattered but knew better than to tell Pops about it - drove it for 2 years and never once heard them.

Found a bag of marijuana in an e30 bmw airbox in about 2001 when I worked at a bmw specialist the owner was standing at the door watching one of the guys looking over the car as it didn't run right I remember him handing it back to him cause he was a repeat customer.

A large collection of porn magazines under the back seat of a second hand Centura I bought in the 80's. Oh and in the glove box of EH Panel Van inherited from father, a cleaning kit, carry handle and sight adjustment tool and other minor bits for a L1A1 or L2A1 Self-Loading Rifle but no actual SLR or ammunition . He never owned a gun while he had the van and I found this after he died so where it came from remains a bit of a mystery; perhaps he gave a lift a reservist or serviceman with an SLR going to some memorial parade while he was in the RSL and they left these bits in the glovebox.

Used to pull up back seats of taxis for lunch money in the 80s. Got the shock of my life when found 6k in notes. The driver came back next day in a panic naturally, turns out he had put it there for safe keeping cause his son was a druggie. They drove them hungry in those days.

The most I found in 1 taxi was just under $80 in coins, ty government getting rid of those smaller notes.
