When I was working on my 1988 Ponitac Fiero I found a lot of treasure underneath my seats. I thought it would be fun to share the treasure we have found while working on our Fieros. I made a couple of YouTube videos showing what I found.

Interesting but doesn't compare to the box that was discovered in a previous owners car that was reported on a few year back. That box contained a variety of dildos and ass plugs and the car was owned by a guy. Hmmmmm! What was he doing with that stuff? Draw your own conclusion.

Hmmm, when I got my '87 GT I found several 10mil pesos (paper money) in the sunvisor!
Little did I know back then (1989) what the value was so I gave them to my kids to play with.......

Latest find in my '88 GT was two perfectly wrapped toothpicks and a gas receipt from an Arizona truck stop dated 1989!
Disappointing to say the least.

Dennis, I think that ”treasure” crossed the line from interesting to disgusting.

Scott, welcome aboard! I found about $2 in US change, a deutchmark (I think, it had one type of metal for the inner coin, and a larger ring of a different type of metal around it), an iphone, and some worn small-dollar currency ($2, $3 bills) under the seats in a truck. My Fiero had fingernail clippings (hopefully that's what they were), lots of pens, some AA batteries, used gum, a thumb drive, intimate pics of a girl in an envelope, and a large fake bill with both George and Martha Washington on it. The last bill was in plastic, but all crumpled up. My all-time favorite thing I found in a car was a loaded pistol. Well, derringer.

My Formula parts car had a bunch of broken glass and one or two pairs of earrings. (P/O was a 17 yo girl, who had stuffed it into a dirt bank.)
Other than that... nothing remarkable.

The car that Dennis mentioned, above, I thought also contained a bunch of... "adult" videos. I could be mistaken.

FWIW, when I used to fix cop car radios, one of my co-workers found a bag of weed in a cop car. Under the front seat. But that's a whole 'nother story.

I'll tell you right now... the best treasures are often hidden down inside the center console. People use the twin ashtrays to store things (other than butts and ashes), but plenty of stuff falls down below. Most people are too lazy to take the console apart to recover fallen items, so they build up over the decades! I've got quite a pile of coins that I've retrieved out of seven Fieros over the last 20 years.

I brought two 88's up from Washington State to BC a few years ago. The duke parts car had a crack pipe down inside the console (glad the border agents didn't find it!), but the Formula had something a little nicer. It was actually in the storage compartment, but I found a key ring with a fob on it from the Pontiac dealership in Knoxville Tennessee where this Formula had been sold when brand new. (The name on the fob matched the name on the decklid decal.) I think it's kind of neat that the dealership fob has been in this car since '88, and has traveled with the car all this time and all the way from Knoxville, Tennessee in the States to Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. The fob continues to reside in the storage compartment. I figure it should stay with the car as long as it's still rolling.

Just to add to my dad's collection of oddities. He has all the bill denominations, 1-5.

Not exactly thread relevant....But Years ago I was living in Alameda and at 9-10pm a girl came ripping up the street in a car- type escapes me- But anyway, she wrecked it, running into a couple of cars on both sides of the street then just missing my Fiero in the driveway and hitting some italian cypresses....The car was a mess, and she ended up in the back of a cop car...the cops were searching the car and trying to get the story; Seems she was mad at her BF, got drunk and stole his car! So the police find a GUN under the front seat.....a few minutes later a car comes rolling up and a guy hops out of the passenger seat, moaning "My CAR!!!"....The cop(with the gun) walks up to him and asks, "Is this your car?" to which he replies, "Yes, that is my car!" vigorously nodding his head....and then the cop pulls the gun from behind his back and asks, "Is this your gun?" to which the guy replies "NO!!!" while vigorously shaking his head...There was quite a crowd by this time- they HAD witnessed the finding of the gun- and we ALL busted up laughing....

tweezers are one that go inside the case on some Swiss Army knives.

pull the console to more change etc.
Often a lot of stuff is under the shifter and can cause problem w/ shifter and cables to it.
AT shifter has 2 cables. See my Cave, Auto Shifter
