Emergency roadside kit anyone?
Years ago I used to keep a roadside kit in the trunk of my Mustang. You know, just in case I was ever out and needed to make some quick repairs to get myself home. It consisted of a small tool kit, an extra accessory belt, the spare tire with jack, a flash light, a tire repair kit, some fix-a-flat, an ice scraper (for the cold months), a can of brake cleaner and WD40, some rags, and sometimes an extra quart of oil, a small bottle of power steering fluid, a small amount of coolant, and brake fluid. It sounds like a lot but it actually wasn't. And the little extra weight was nothing if I had some peace of mind. But eventually those items all slowly began to disappear to the point where I kept my trunk empty. Even the spare tire and jack were eventually removed. All in the name of going faster.
Sometimes I think back and wonder if I should at least keep a small tool kit in the trunk of my Camaro. I already always keep an ice scrapper and flashlight. And I haven't been stuck in the Camaro yet so I don't really think it is necessary. But when you mod a vehicle, things have a tendency to break. So I'm thinking about getting a small kit to keep on hand. Definitely not all the stuff I used to keep. But some emergency stuff for sure. So what do you guys think about this? Would you keep a kit in your trunk? If so, then what would it consist of?
