Time for another edition of Daily Turismo’s Coffee Brake — where we step away from the calculating and clinical nature our standard posts and experience life on the lighter side. If you are anything like me, then you’ve purchased a few used cars over the years and when I say few, what I mean is too many to count. One of the first things I always do when I pick up a new (to me!) ride is give it a thorough cleaning and descuzzification — get the all the previous owner’s funk, junk, and DNA out of the car. This involves reaching under seats and finding unknown gems and sometimes you find some bizarre stuff, which is a perfect segue to today’s Coffee Brake question. What is the coolest thing you’ve found in used car?
In the Draken I found a Lightning McQueen toy car permanently fused to the rear under-trunk carpet due to the gasoline dissolving Lightning’s tires, but the strangest thing I found in the car was a Saab breath mint wrapper.
Also included was a spare Inka alloy wheel, which I knew about ahead of time, but a surprise bonus was a set of minty clean rad Saab mud flaps.
