What do you keep in your trunk/car for tools, etc? I have a 150 piece Craftsman tool set that I recieved for X-mas 2k7, and a tool box filled with an accumulation of emergency kits that I got when I got my license, lol. I also have a blanket, a pair of mittens and a stocking hat, and the ever important Pontiac Accessory Kit (glad I kept it from my old car, this one didn't have it).

Pontiac Accessory Kit, screwdriver set, a tripod, and an emergency kit (flashlight, booster cables, first aid, blanket, and a poncho), and last but not least, a dollar store devil's pitchfork :lol:

Right now there's also a photography rig that I got from an old member here (Brad Goldring)... been lazy to take it out.

In the green car the truck is empty except for the jack and spare tire.

Now the white one is a little different. Small emergency tool kit, spare serpentine belt, jack and spare tire, several spare light bulbs, and a well wrapped spare PCM.
Wife also keeps a dozen reuseable shopping bags, blanket, umbrella, gloves, and a lot of misc junk that has to be moved every time I look for anything in there.

Umm, let's see, my trunks cargo changes almost on a daily basis. During the summer, both my trunks carry a variety of cleaning and car care products.

Currently:
Bonneville - Pontiac Accessory Kit, front license plate cover, 2 qts of oil, 1 qt of ATF, various towels and microfiber cloths, garbage bags, and a tripod; missing spare tire and jack (because of the lake in the spare wheel well)

LeSabre - Sub box, garbage bags, towels, flashlight, 1 qt of oil, Michelin digital tire gauge, old license plates, extra wiring and LED bulbs, pieces of Park Avenue door panels, and PIAA driving lights (because I don't have them mounted yet); missing spare tire (less weight)

Found out this week, very bad to not keep your spares in the car. . . #-o

Year and Trim: '89 LeSabre T Type
Two of my tool boxes (lots of sockets, ratchets, wrenches, screwdirvers, etc.), a first aid kit and thats about it for now. I need to replace my old factory jack since I bent it up a while back and put my jumper cables back in but otherwise its the first time I've had a relatively clean trunk in about a year. I cleaned it out when my g/f and I went on vacation last week.

The '01:
Stole the Accessory Kit from the '93
Extra quart of oil
Half a gallon of 50/50 Coolant mix
Roll of paper towels
A carpenter's tool kit that my grandmother got for me just-in-case I need a hammer, level or tape measure out on the road :laughing3:

The '93:
2 Engines worth of brackets, bolts and parts etc...
And I haven't looked recently but I wouldn't be surprised to find a pool back there either :???:

[Edit] I forgot the jack and spare is also in the '01. The Jack for the '93 I believe is in the garage, that or its in the back seat with the spare...needed to make room for the engine parts in the trunk. :roll:

The GTP has winter mats, emerg kit, snow brush (Oskar) and a scraper as well as some Goo Gone spray that I've yet to use, a Ractive cone air filter and spare L32 airbox cover.

Aurora: Oye...who knows, detailing gear, engine cover, sub box and an umbrella maybe?
