Kool things previous owners left behind in your car
#1
I decided to post this thread in response to the other thread I posted tonight:

https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-kool...g-your-car

So here's an example of some cool stuff I found in the factory console of my Bright Blue 72 R-code convertible left behind by the last owner. Check out the cigar and the cool "Saturday Night Fever" hair brush circa 1976. I had a brush like this when I was a sophomore in high school and had hair Haha

And check out these cool bumper stickers and window tags:

And let's not forget, every classic needs a can of "Fix a Flat":

And these cool old school tires with which to use the "Fix a Flat":

And let's not forget about the contributions made by our furry little friends all over the top of the motor and just about everywhere else:

I missed out on the dog hairs but it made up for it in the rust region and mice construction work
I bought a clunker falcon a few years back for $600 and apart from a few handy tools left in it there was an expensive looking Gucci watch under the drivers seat which was not owned by the guy i bought the vehicle off.
Sold it on fleabay for $400 then flipped the car for $1800, gotta get lucky sometimes

The previous owners of my car were the makers of Cyberdyne Digital Gauges...so they left a whole dash full of old school digital gauges for me, LOL!

My car was a show car for their gauges back in the day!

Not too exciting a find I suppose but while I was poking around under the hood I found one of those old school magnetic key holders attached near the battery complete with two working keys inside.

My 71 Mach had nothing behind left but an FM converter and tons of rust. Did find quite a few screws and misc hardware bits from assembly line under the carpets. Inventory control at the Ford plants must have been pretty loosey-goosey!

I bought a one -owner 71 Grandé once that had the most incredible ant colony under the passenger side carpet..... Jawdrop

While not left by a PO, I found a brand new "dropped by a factory line worker" brake pedal rubber under the drivers side carpet when the car was stripped for a repaint. Perhaps it was dropped on installation or knocked off the pedal and rather than look for it, the guy (or gal) just put another one on. Now I have a spare!! I also found three almost pristine build sheets.
