@younggotti. I keep my registration, emissions/safety inspections papers, insurance crap, a bottle of No-Doz, and sometimes when the mood befits me my Desert Eagle - .40 cal (I keep the loaded clip in my side compartment in case I get pulled over by the cops). Thank goodness for the huge glove box in my 73!

edit: BTW checked out your Caddy, figgin' nice. VERY classy. Your website and sig cracked me up. Nice job playa'. Have you posted pics of your ride at cardomain?

For all you gent's that carry guns in the car, I know one of you said you keep the clip out of the gun, why is this? How the hell can you use a gun if its not loaded? Surely its not for decoration???

Its not a crime to have a loaded weapon, as long as you have your permits in hand.

@carguy16. It was me who keeps the clip seperate from the gun. I don't have a CWP (Concealed Weapons Permit) yet. I believe state law here in Utah mandates the clip and gun be kept separate. Should I ever be pulled over I MUST advise the officer of this as well. Once I get my CWP then it's only two "actions" bet your @$$ it will be loaded.

So anyhow, if the sh_t goes down all I can do is lock my doors and pray I have enough time to pop in the clip.

Fess up! It's in case you get abducted by a UFO.

In my glovebox I have one of those dashboard duster things, a gps that I haven't used in eons, and a ROCK.

Yes, I said a ROCK. I found it in a friend's driveway when I was seven years old. It has a hole in it that looks like a bullet hole. I put it in the glove box of mom's 1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88. It remained in whatever car she drove for almost 20 years, then I got it back. The list of vehicles that the ROCK has resided in is lengthy:

1972 Olds Delta 88
1975 Pontiac Grand Prix
1978 Olds Omega
1979 Cadillac Eldorado
1982 Cadillac Eldorado
1985 Olds 98
1987 Acura Legend (I bought this car from her in 1991 and got my rock back)
1990 Acura Legend
1997 Acura RL
2000 Honda Prelude

This ROCK is very special to me. It's kind of like a St. Christopher medal or a plastic Jesus. The ROCK goes wherever I go.

:shhh: Dang straight! If those little greenie meanies try to abduct and probe me, I'm going to be the first one to ever get authentic pics of 'em so I can sell them to the National enquirer for a cool mil. :coolgleam Actually, there was a sighting near my hometown by a farmer I was in the local gun club with and he told me all about it! Must have been all that cheap Canadian beer he always used to drink, eh? :drinker

You see, in Canada, we aren't allowed to shoot people that rob us, we can "shoot" them with a 35 mm camera and then proceed to run to the nearest RCMP detatchment, while screaming like 12 year old school girls in fear. :bonkers: Maybe I can borrow your rock Elvis LOL!

With proper training it only takes a second or two to put a clip into an auto, even under stressful conditions, which is definately better than "throwing rocks!" ;)

Thanx man, that's what I'm goin for - much much cackling! Haven't posted any yet...I'm afraid of the negative critisism!! :crying2:

Sorry Ralph...in the ash tray is a lighter (don't know who left it there) and some candy wrappers! In the center console is my digital camera...to catch anything interesting...everyonce in a while I'll dangle bead necklaces to females and snap a pic real quick! Also in there WAS a bunch of change which was just cleaned up, 6 CD's in CASES, AND my alternate name tags from work. I hate wearing "Jacob", so the others are my other names - "Mr. Hoppe" and my porn name "Raw Silk"!

you got SBC cam? me too (87' iroc-z)...i also have a ford cam (78' ford f-150), another caddy cam (87' seville, 4.1 liter) and some crankshafts laying around. the cranks are waaaaaaaayyyyy to heavy though.


not to start selling things on this thread, but i also have the block/heads to the ford and chevy, they are in good condition. no one wants the 4.1 liter block though. it is still good, just the cam and everything else went bad on it.

That's the biggest glovebox I've ever heard of! I'm not even going to ask about "protection." :rolleyes:

if its sexual protection, that's what the compartment by the top brake light above the rear seats are for...Everytime I open that for some reason I get a whiff of freshy cut wood - odd.

Man, that's right, I forgot about that compartment! I don't think I've opened it since I got this car from my Dad, maybe there is a roll of 20's in there. :bighead:

I'm sure RB meant Baseball bat. :lildevil:

I used to keep "protection" in my glovebox when I was in high school. There are a few problems with that--

1) If you're in the back seat it kinda kills the mood when you lean over the front seatback to retrieve your "protection" and moon your lady while she waits,

2) At age 17, I didn't have the "staying power" to hold out long enough to need one!

3) The temperature inside a glovebox can reach 140 degrees in a Memphis summer. Would you trust a sheet of latex that had endured a month or two of that?

Yea, it turned into a seasonal deal...I don't keep them in the car in summer or winter...kind of a hassle but better safe than sorry!

i find that a camshaft in the back seat is a good crime deterrent.
caddy camshafts seem lite for a good swing :devil:
