Well now I've seen it all... about a week ago my Tach quit working..... it's a small add on tach monted on top of the dash pad. I decided to troubleshoot it this afternoon and when I opened it up it had what looked like cobwebs all in the movement. I got some tweezers and started pulling the stuff out carefully & finally got a tiny little cocoon or egg sack or whatever..... some little creature had set up housekeeping. Finished cleaning it out .... put it all back together and it's working good as ever. Just had to share that one..... whats the weirdest thing anyone else ever found gumming up the works of their parts?

Over the weekend, I removed the shifter bezel to make some adjustments. Amongst all the cigarette ashes, I found half of a "joint". No, it was not mine and I didn't smoke it!! Who knows how long it has been there!!

Well, in my case I found out before anything really didn't work anymore, but.....

....my californian imported Mustang was full of ladybugs (I believe you call them that). Everywhere you took something apart the first thing you'd see were those little bugs with the black dotted red bodies and black heads! I think I found a million of them. And in the weirdest places.... Even after a year and a half, I still find some while working on it...

The shop where my engine eventually was rebuilt (third time around) had a guy there that drove an old pickup with a dried rat hanging from the rear-view mirror, when I asked him about it he said he found it behind the dash (in its dried pancaked shape) and decided to hang it there as a keepsake! By the way this is a top guy, even if he was covered in piercings!
