Emergency kit...

so reading a post that revamp made about carrying a swiffer in her car and dusting her dashboard at ever stoplight, that made me think...

what kind of stuff do you guys always carry in your SVT?

i always have on hand:
-a power inverter
-tire wet
-leather conditioner (for the recaros)
-quick detail wipes
-small ratchet set

i've seen people get pretty creative and wire mini fridges in their trunk and stuff.

Nothing...cause I am still under warranty

Once I am out of warranty I start to carry alot of stuff, that builds up over time:
Air Compressor
Light
Emergency Tools
Tire Plug Kit
Oil
Water
Belts
Wax
409
Window Cleaner
Rags
Towels

It starts to take up a lot of room after awhile. Then when nothing else fits its time to buy a new car...

I going to stary carrying a quart of oil in my trunk, along with a small first aid kit.

Oh, and a complete Windows XP based PC wired to a 7 inch touch screen in the dash, but that isn't really for emergencies.

When you absolutely, positively have to send an email

I have my detail wipes, tire shine, and a nice stack of microfiber towels (got a package of 24 of em at Sams for 2 bucks on clearance).

First aid kit
Flashlight
Batteries
Swiss Army knife
Rags
Paper towels
Tire gauge
Tools: Vise-Grip, Channelocks, sidecutters, Crescent wrench, Philips & chisel-point SD
Key for wheel locks
Pen & paper
Owner's manual
Sunshade in season
snow brush and scraper in season

No car-care stuff - that's left at home

No fluids - too much crap to carry, and I check fluids at home once a week

That's for local driving. For road trips, I will carry maybe coolant, window cleaner and oil. Maybe some more tools, tire-inflate stuff. If I'm going to a car-type event, then also a small bucket, car wash, wash mitt, microfiber towel.

I carry as little as possible. I don't want a bunch of crap flying around when I'm tearing through a turn or if I have to stop suddenly for any reason. But in the glovebox, among all the usual glovebox stuff, there is a soft-bristled brush for dusting the dash (like revamp I guess I'm really nerdy about keeping it clean "on-the-fly") and in the hatch is always a bottle of Mother's detail spray and a microfiber towel or two from Wayne (for cleaning bird poop "on-the-fly" as well).
