Default Thought this would be fun. What strange things have you found in your ranger?

I have found a lot of stuff in cars over the years. Just think it would be cool to here of what everyone else has found. Me just the typical mouse/rat nest, 22cal bullets, notes, old drivers license, fishing lures, and a lot of coins.

Nothing in mine. Found plenty when I was working as a lot tech for a Lincoln-Mercury dealer 30 years ago.

Found lipstick and several hair ties under the jump seat. Which explains the crash report under the Carfax (woman driver)

The previous owner never cleaned out the bed when I bought it from him because the crap inside the bed was all frozen. I found a carpenters square, impact driver bits, a Made in USA Pipe Wrench and a big ass USA adjustable wrench.

A Pair of glasses which is odd enough, but I found the only when I reached up BEHIND the glovebox. They were tucked behind a panel against the wall next to the blower. Almost like they were hiding there:



And of course the standard $1.46 in change, pens, pencils, a golf ball, beer bottle caps, a hot wheels car, some screws...
