Buying a used car means inheriting someone else’s problems, mistakes, triumphs and successes. Sometimes you get something that’s been neglected, sometimes you get something given a lot of TLC. And sometimes you get another person’s stuff, too!

I can’t say I have any weird “found in a used car” stories, but Jason once found a conductor’s baton in a Ford Escort he bought as a Lemons racer. The previous owner must have been a conductor, or possibly someone with a conductor fetish.

So that’s our question of the day: What’s the weirdest thing you found in a used car?
