    What do you keep in your car?

    I am owner of Peugeot 407 and quite often I use my car for weekend trips with a huge amount of stuff. Last week I went fishing with full back of fishing rods. Next one I'm going to try camping for the first time.
    So here is my thread question: what stuff/equipment do you keep in your car? For me it's necessary to have medical box, some extra food, water, gloves, and probably I will take walkie-talkie too for emergency situations.

    I carry a chainsaw! I live in a wooded rural area where a good storm is likely to knock trees down and a few times a year they end up blocking the road.

    Re: What do you keep in your car?

    I spend most of my time in my company car and I load it up with all of the necessary everyday things. There are two hard hats, yellow safety vest, yellow safety jacket, rain jacket, change of shirt and pants, sweat towel, snow brush, hand cleaner, extra gloves, first aid kit, water jug, tool box, bearing pullers, torque wrench, demo cases, catalogs, portable battery charger, portable tire inflator, and of course the detailing bag. It's a good thing that I have an SUV.

    Re: What do you keep in your car?

    Other than QD, glass cleaner, and few MF towels......

    I have a small tool pouch, my Buck knife, jumper cables, pen & pencils, note pad, tape measure, a lot of napkins, bottle of water, and about 10 of my favorite CD's.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Not a good recommendation if loaded, as that is against the law in many/most states. Even if unloaded, there are then strict restrictions on how/where to carry your ammo. Safest best is to put the firearm in a locked container (but not glovebox or console) and the ammo in the trunk or another lock box (but again, not in glovebox or console).

    As for what I carry in my vehicles : MF towels, QD, roll of paper towels, pr. of work gloves, flashlight, multi-function knife, 100+ piece tool kit (Harbor Freight), roll of duct rape, roll of electrical tape, spare hose clamps, and jumper cables. Also a jump drive with my music.

    Re: What do you keep in your car?

    In Arizona, water, water, water and more water... and an umbrella... One would ask why an umbrella? If the car breaks down, you don't want to stay in the car due to the heat but you need something to cover or give you shade you from the sun. Sometimes I throw my quick-start jump-pack in the trunk. Never know when the battery may decide to lose juice.

    Re: What do you keep in your car?

    A small bottle of quick detailer and a towel. I think jumper cables with the spare tire as well. Nothing else. I hate any and every sound or rattle in a car so I keep as few items as possible inside. My hearing is really good and every little noise will drive me nuts. When I drive my wife’s car with a few items in door pockets or trunk I really start cursing less than a mile away.

    Re: What do you keep in your car?

    I like to keep the bare minimum amount of things in my car because I prefer to have it clean and available at all times. Only things typically on board are,

    Spare tire: [no jack. I can call AAA for roadside assistance]



    Coins:



    2 umbrellas [1 in each umbrella holder underneath both front seats]

    Owner’s Manual [in the glove compartemente]

    Windshield sun visor [tucked into the pocket behind the passenger seat]

    Quart of oil/nitrile gloves/shop towels [inside the trunk cubbyhole]

    Maybe a pack of dental floss picks and inkpens inside the center console.. CD’s when I feel like listening to music.

    And that’s it. Everything else stays clean and wide open. No chargers or any messy crap like that. No exceptions. OCD style.
