Mate of mine has his step dads ashes.... Been there for about 12 month.
unusual things in your car boot
Not really interesting but definitely rank.
A big lump of cheese from a bike trip 4 weeks ago (must remove that soon)
A packet of ham from same bike trip (daren't open it)
2 Part baked baguettes
A bed sheet
A bivvy bag
An archive box lid (useful to stop annoying rattles against the windows from handlebars)
The missus got in the car last night and suggested that a valet deal on groupon might be a good idea, she hasn't seen my desk...
Good friend of mine (female) uses the "what's in your boot" question at speed dating events (she's into that kind of thing). Replies will quickly sort the wheat from the chaff. Set of golf clubs - get lost. Muddy wellies/bike/dog/boots and you're in there!
In the Beetle there is:
A sewing machine
A hockey stick
A book - The Cobra in the Barn
A CD - The Joshua Tree
A tin of shortbread
I am not even going to look in the Syncro!
In actual fact, there was a toy dinosaur in there for a while, now there is just a shitload of bags for life of all kinds. Enough to carry about ten trolleys worth of shopping, and way more than the car could carry if they were full.
Other than that it's just oil, screenwash, spare bulbs, that kind of thing.
Some French sweets that were so vile even the kids wouldn't eat them
A pair of nearly new hiking boots that don't fit anyone in my family (size 3)
A 'Count Arthur Strong' CD
A Nokia phone charger (I don't know anyone with a Nokia)
A BMW 325i M50 inlet manifold and throttle body (I drive a SEAT)
I've been pulled over for an emissions test and the police have asked if they can have a quick look in the back of the van - I had a burnt corpse and severed head in a box.
I have 3 absolutely massive marrows.
..and a shovel.
I'm joking of course! She isn't my wife yet. Or concious.
Maccruiskeen - please elaborate
I have a valentine card that I bought for my wife last year and promptly lost. She didn't believe me and I just found it a few weeks ago.
Pair of hiking boots.
2 sets of crown green bowls.
About 500 unoped letters, all addressed to me.
A Nintendo DS complete with half a dozen games.
A toffee hammer.
In the boot of my car? Errr, no idea, not been in it for ages. Now if you'd asked what's in my panniers...
Maccruiskeen - please elaborate
Thats what the copper said
The burnt corpse was being used as part of a theatre performance and had to be set alight during each show so had a fabricated steel skeleton and was and wrapped in glass fibre cloth so that it could be burned without being burnt up if that makes sense. The orginal prop maker had copied a medical skelton but the one he copied was standing so it looked funny lying down. My job was to break all its limbs and re-weld so it lay on the floor more naturally. The box was something I'd been asked to pick up on the way so I was as surprised as the police were when I opened it
A human turd that my dog has just vomited up.

A massive muddy dust sheet. Some spare bulbs in a broken plastic box with most of the bulbs missing. Half a 2l bottle of water. Not much really.
Just off the top of my head, a big Ikea carry bag with a waterproof dayglo and reflective jacket just in case, a 5ltr plastic chemical bottle full of screen wash, (the Octy takes 5 litres at a time), a blanket, and a couple of those big blanket things that removals people use to protect stuff, to cover the boot area when carrying a bike, a new Aldi sleeping bag in its bag, a couple of walking sticks I've made, for when I'm out walking on slippy ground, my Muckboots, an electric air pump for air mattresses, and a little case thing with spare bulbs, fuses, a few tools, and a nine-ton orange webbing tow-rope. Just in case, had it for years, not needed it yet.
6 house bricks, a mattock , a trench spade and my laptop..... (best go and get it!!!)
Roll of bin bags, gaffa tape, bunjee straps and an ice scraper

Yep, bag of PPE also. Hard hat, toecapped boots, waterproofs
Not as strange as some, but I'm probably the only one here with 2 unicycles in my boot. If inside the front counts for stuff which doesn't fit in the boot, then a wing kayak paddle too.
