    a fire ext. a 1st aide kit and a cell phone , lol my buddy owns a garage so if it needs towed i call him, and get it home to work on, but its insured well, so if it ever starts to burn ill really have to force myself to save it lol, fix a flat is a good idea , ill have to get a can of that in there also

    I've carried tools on long trips because I didn't want to pay a mechanic to fix a stupid small problem. Screw drivers,ratcheting wrenches,standard or metric sockets depending on what I'm driving. channel locks & needle nose pliers. But by driving G.M. cars (knock on wood) I haven't had to use them in the 40 years of driving but I have helped other stranded motorists

    I always carry a small ratchet kit, hose clamps, tape, screw drivers, spare belts, plug kit. Just basic stuff. This is in all my household vehicles.

    My friends all say I'm a pretty big tool. That's about all I take.

    If I'm traveling 2 plus hours, I'll take an adjustable wrench, a screwdriver set and pliers. Most importantly, I bring extra oil, radiator fluid, brake fluid and carb cleaner.

    I carry a tool box full of tools in the trunk. I hate not having a tool when I need it. When I drive my camaro its usually on a road trip. Last years Hot Rod Magazine power tour I had a problem that I use just about all the tools in the box before I got it fixed! I also loaned tools to a freind that had carb issues who did not bring a single tool because he was in a Corvette with a passenger. I carry:
    Assorted screw drivers and SAE wrenchs
    Ratches, Sockets and extensions
    Electric wire stripper, solder, mini torch, tape, wire, terminals , ignition plug wires,
    First aid kit
    Misc Carb parts and jets
    Fuel line and hose clamps
    Electic multi tester, test light, fuses, plug gap guage
    Form a gasket RTV, pipe thread selant, anti seeze
    Tire plug kit
    Air Tank, Small compressor, pressure guage, air chuck
    Oil, Trans / power steering fluid, water, window glass cleaner, funnel, Lucas Oil fuel additive
    Rags and gloves
    Evan Williams Black in flask
    CalTec 380
    Marine surplus knife, razor knife
    Needle nose, channel lock, electric plyers, adjustable wrenches
    Battery powered light, drill, impact wrench
    I always have fire extinguisher in car
    If I'm camping I put in back seat:
    air mattress and pump
    Pots and pans and propane stove
    sleeping bag
    I'd much rather camp then stay in a hotel/ motel

    I admit that's a lot of stuff to carry but like I said I was damn glad I had it last year! Figuring out and Fixing a problem is bad enough when you have the tools let alone having to rely on sombody else. If your out of town in distress with no tools HOLD ON to your wallet at a service shop!
