whats the weirdest thing you've ever found while taking apart an old vehicle?

I've been striping the interior out of my old 78 gmc getting it ready for a new floor and as usual under the seat was a rats nest of discarded items from the previous owner. Anyways under the seat of this old truck i found a little tub of Vaseline and a pair of rubber gloves I'm guessing the previous owner was a lonely guy.
I also found a mouse nest under the dash on the speedometer. Anyone else have any interesting finds? post em up!

Chris

I found it

Found a hornet's nest in the cab of a 4 door 1957 Chevy Bel-Air, Bad part was that I open the door, sat in the front sit, and slamed the door.......................I guess the little bees form heck wroke up and came to see me. I got the heck out of there in about 2.125 seconds of sitting down.
Got stung about 6 times had the pain for 2 weeks
The bees got a present From me a week later about 3 of those bug bombs

How about a condom in the jack bag.

Condoms taped up under the dash, have found them in the usual places like glove box, door panel pocket, seat cracks etc but never taped up under the dash.

I also found a pistol in a '49 Plymouth years ago; a .38 Colt. It was way down inside the bottom of the drivers door, and very rusty. Had about 3 old rounds in it. Must have been there since the car was built, as I found no evidence that the door had ever been disassembled.

When I worked in a wrecking yard I had the pleasure of checking in a new wreck.. A bag of weed under the seat, a bunch of brand new clothes in the back seat, and a chunk of scalp stuck at the top of the door frame where the door met the body. Let's see, smoke a little weed, go shopping, roll the car and get killed. Found lots of stuff in those cars, money, tools, knives, dirty diapers, drugs. Dan

Found a .32 Special round, some "roaches" and a used condom in the seats of an old police car and a friend of mine bought a Pinto from a towing service to build a bracket car out of and found a bong in the back seat.

Lemme see, when I gutted my Mustang it was filthy. I found condoms, panties, drugs, toys, cheap jewelry, french fries from about every chain fast food place, a bolony sandwich, icecream and catsup everywhere, and my absolute favorite was the 1/2 eaten chicken breast stuffed between the driver's seat and the center consol. Did I mention the woman who owned the car before me was a 400 pounder?
