Working on my Golf today, I realized that my trunk has gotten... out of hand. Here’s what it looks like:

Not having gone all the way down to the spare tire, here’s what I have in there:

  • A toolbox, fully stocked with more tools than I could ever hope to use fixing the car
  • A full sized beach towel, to stop dogs and drunk people from messing up the seats
  • Two hand towels, one for checking the oil, one for whatever
  • A roll of paper towels, for paper towel things
  • A bottle of 3-in-1 oil, for lubricating shift linkage
  • A tube of JB Weld, because duh
  • A traffic cone, so people don’t hit me when I work on my car in the street/in parking lots
  • Two large foam tiles, to lay on when I’m under the car
  • A floor jack
  • Two pieces of split log, for wheel chocks
  • A road flare/danger triangle kit
  • Ice scraper
  • Bentley manual, for repair guides
  • Haynes manual, for emergency TP
  • A head unit that I never installed
  • A machete
  • An extra pair of shoes
  • A quart of 10w40 full synthetic, unopened because I somehow do not leak oil

What do you have in your trunk?
