A quick list...
Oil - two quarts
Brake fluid - one pint in new unopened bottle
coolant/water mix - gallon
small set of hand tools
air pressure gauge
wire connectors (twist-on type)
Spares; (you have to learn what your car likes to "eat")
spare fan belt
spare set of points and condensor (if your car uses these)
spare wheel and tire (of course - but some people don't!)
spare nuts and bolts of various sizes
I also carry a couple of rags and some hand cleaning stuff. If you pack
carefully, all this stuff can be carried and still leave room for some luggage
or golf clubs. Like I said above, after you live with your car for awhile,
you'll know what you need. Unless you are fortunate enough to have a "good
previous owner" (gpo) instead of a dumb one (dpo), it may take a year of
driving to determine the various peculiar needs of this particular "new" car,
and sort out the problems.
By the way - introduce yourself! You might find a like minded soul in your
neck of the woods!
