Yup! I posted just to show you that not always will you be understood right!
So little words little trouble. Cool Man.

Getting back to stuff in the car... Great idea on a Camera being in the car. Some of those bad shots would have been classy and the sights we missed would have been photos now.

Camera in the car is a good idea, but have to make sure, its not left on the seats. It should be carefully hidden, so that nobody smashes the windows to get the camera.

Most importantly the copy of documents like RC, Insurance, etc.
Then Music is a must, so always carry CDs in car.
Also mobile charger, tissues, etc.
I don't like to stuff the car with other things.

I for one cannot keep ANYTHING in the car because it has to be uncluttered inside.

Nothing is kept inside for good - 99% of the time my car is free of everything except the camera and flashlight in the glovebox, the ipod in the centre console and the sonofagun dash polish and a pack of scratch remover tucked away out of sight in the seat-back pockets.
I know one thing for sure, you'll never sit in my car Well, not at least till the kids grow up. But, I like the way yours is. That's how it should be.

Inside the cabin:
-Tissue box + Face wipes at times
-Water
-Mobile chargers
-Inverter to charge the laptop on highway runs
-Mint/Gum
-Petrol slip book
-Car papers/manual

I keep just some bare minimum stuff over what was already given my the manufacturer.

3 one litre bottles of water. 1 for the battery(battery), 1 for the wind shield, 1 for cleaning car or shoes if needed.

Umbrella.

WD 40.

My Toolkit.


Remember if you carry a lot of stuff in the car you are wasting fuel and most importantly the horsepower.
