Nothing crazy, but I did find a nice *** leather belt under the driver seat about a month after I bought it. It looked brand new and as a matter of fact I'm wearing it right now.

Nissan titan came into work a couple weeks ago with non working ac and a severe tranny leak. We found a dead, cooked pigeon that took out the condenser and trans cooler. The smell was terrible.

In my last ZJ:

Rubber mallet
Knit beanie
About $7 in change
S*** ton of French fries
A 4" socket extension in the engine compartment, completely rusted and kinda gnarly!

In my current ZJ:

Wiring setup for A/V in the center console
Wiring for a dual amp/dual sub setup, but no speakers, head unit, amp, subs, anything...
A broken sway bar end link
And a K&N stock air filter replacement

In other words, nothing like the panties behind the VIC

I think the winner so far is french fries with tools coming in a close second.

Ha ha. I found some off brand ky that was just labeled personal lubricant and 3 condoms. Although I know the PO so it was weird for a second.

I've found french fries, glued on coins that I can't get off still, blunt wrappers, newports, and a old nugget of weed.

The grossest thing I found was a condom when I removed my carpet and center console.

Yeah, a month ago, I dropped a battery down the ebrake hole and pulled the console up and found all kinds of treasures down there like pens, tire gauge, coins and a couple different earrings (not mine).

I had no idea that I was losing stuff down that hole.

LOl, I once caught a box turtle and put him on the floor of the back seat. About killed myself when I went to stop and the dam thing had crawled under the front seat while being lodged under the brake pedal! Had to kick him out from underneath the pedal real quick to stop!

Hmm, in my Zj I found a children's picture book lodged in the seat pocket, along with some sort of ghetto fuse holder. A CD in the e brake hole. The kc's had black tape instead of correct wire splices. 3 pioneer door speakers installed, and one in the cargo area. (passenger rear door still had the blown out factory infinity installed). And my favorite, the 3" chunks of plumbers pipe welded to my coils to make 'custom BB spacers'.
In my gf's Zj (which is now gone), I found most of a car phone with the users manual, NO thermostat, a matching spare with a 4" hole in it, a twisted piece of tie wire for the Ac fuse, no coolant res cap, and the guy had wrapped part of the ecu in tin foil? I also ended up finding an extra ps cap, oil cap, and a broken oil pressure sensor.
