My first Ranger was a slightly used 97' bought in 98' with just under 11,000 miles, and in the glove box was a utility bill or other maintenance bill with the full name and address of the first owner.

A bale of hay in back of a wagon. That's the tip of the iceburg.

Just wait a few months and you can walk into a store down here and buy it. Stop making the rental sleds reek of pot, the next customer might be offended and not leave cash strapped college kids a six pack.

*Were you the guy that left the heroin stuffed down by the spare tire and the guy at another rental Co next door found (not a joke on someone leaving it behind either)? That one really got the cops excited.

My 95 had the original window sticker in the dash, along with some kind of info from every previous owner. A chain saw chain and a go cart clutch behind one of the rear jump seats

There was a customer at a new car lot locally here in Ohio with a Fusion, I believe. She took the car in for flat repair and the spare made a noise. Turns out, the spare was hollowed out and contained a street value of $15K in Marijuana. Police even were amazed and think the car was tampered with in transport, and now, they wonder where the car came from and why the drugs weren't picked up sooner, what the original market was, etc.

Bought the truck after snow storm. Once snow was melted I cleaned out leaves, spent shells hulls and found old turkey feet/ leggs. The PO lived out in the country.

Roll of hockey tape under the good when I bought it. And a ice scraper came flying out of some where when I went into the ditch

She should have knived that $50 spare open, pulled out the weed and set out to participate in American style capitalism.......tax free capitalism, the best of the best.

The whole situation was weird. Lady got a flat and went to the dealer to get it fixed. They evidently couldn't and she didn't want a new tire, so they put the spare on. Mechanic didn't notice anything odd until he drove the vehicle and there was a thump noise. He then removed the spare and that is when it was discovered to be hollowed out and full of drugs. Makes no sense to me. Was he that out of it or the criminals were that good? How could it not be noticed that the spare was different?
