Illustration for article titled Whats In Your Glove Compartment?

Not every vehicles has a RamBox, center console, or even a trunk to store crap. But almost every car has a glove compartment. What's in your glove compartment?


Like most motorists I keep an up-to-date copy of my insurance in the Volvo's large, lockable glove compartment. The owner's manual (no iPad or even a Newton for 1986 Volvos) and service guides sit in there as well. Vehicle registration information, of course. There's also a spare light bulb for something, but I'm not quite sure what. There's a card for the service center in New Jersey where the vehicle was originally sold along with a "1986 Volvo Maintenance Guide" only partially completed. Finally, there's an empty plastic case for prescription glasses. I'm not sure if it was for the man who originally owned the car or his wife. They're both dead so I can't ask them. No gloves.


Perhaps it's been a while since you've opened it up, giving you an opportunity to answer our question and clear out the Snickers bar that's been in there since 1992.
