    I found a 10mm wrench under the front seat of a used car I bought. It was great because I needed one for another car I was working on. BTW - it was a "Snap-On"

    I found a crow-bar jammed against the 3pt control of a tractor. Discovered it was there to hold the controller on since someone had broken all the bolts off in the tractor.

    The worst thing I ever found was a rattle snake under the seat of the old (1952 model) Case backhoe we used to have when I was in my 20's - and yes, it was alive.

    Bits of cat that had curled up in the fan housing of the truck while I was having lunch (yes I just about lost the lunch). Mice nests in the air cleaner,heater core wiring harness etc. A pepsi can in the door panel of a used car. A mechanics fender pad down beside the engine on my way home from a dealer repair. The oil plug to the engine sitting in the fender well after an oil change!(same car same dealer) A chain welded to the frame to hold up the transmission of a 57 Chev. Footprints on the roof liner of one of our service trucks with very suspicious positioning. And an empty but fume filled gas can with a spark plug lead stuck in it under the hood of a disliked foreman's recently serviced truck.

    I recently found a magnetic pickup tool on the fender of a diesel powered towable compressor I rented. It didn't budge one bit in the 20-miles I drove from the rental yard to a friend's house. I gave it to him since I already have two.

    You know the rules...it didn't happen unless you post pictures of the pole dancer you found.

    A month ago or so I found a snake skin hanging over some tools located in the shed that I frequent from time to time...
    Last year the same snake shed his skin in my basement over my hot water pipe leading up to my kitchen...
    I never let it bother me because I have always had a few black snakes around the farm and have never had issues with copperheads...
    Saturday I was bush hogging and I ran over him...
    Didn't complete kill him but he was past the point of no return...
    I finished him off with the FEL bucket...
    I hated that...

    Found a Stanley framming hammer in the auger of my brand new snow blower (right after the shear bolt broke). Was getting an addition to the house built at the time. F#$%ing carpenters! It cracked/bent the metal around the propeller. Why did I ever give it back to them?

    Another one ... mouse nest in the air filter housing of my 8.1 l Chevy. The little sucker chewed a hole in the filter element. No telling how long I was gettting dirt into the engine.

    Bought a motorhome one time and the previous owner had hose clamped a line to the frame rail. I guess the hose clamp was too big to tighten up so he used a 1/4" Craftsman breaker bar as a spacer and left it!
