Well, I've found a number of acorns in the heater of my Midget since I
bought it last September. Glad I didn't find any in the engine, though!

When I bought my '91 Dodge Dakota new, I had it less than a week and I found
hickory nuts on the intake manifold. And I had been driving it - little
buggers moved in quick!

And a Dodge Omni I had that I was also driving heavily got mice in the glove
box - ate about half of my registration. Kept wondering what a cop would
think if I got pulled over. :-)

A car doesn't need to be parked long to get infested!

1971 Midget
