One of Murphy's laws is: "If you have the spare with you AND the tool(s) to 
install it, this item will not be the cause of your breakdown"
Usually I carry points, condenser, plugs, LT lead (the little black wire in 
the distributor), fuses.  I also carry my small tool box with full set of 3/8 
sockets, a full set of combo wrenches, lots of various sized screwdrivers, 
and a few pliers.  A test light or multimeter can be a lifesaver, and I never 
leave home without my Bentley manual.  Embarking on a long trip I will 
sometimes add more, but I rarely carry oil or Antifreeze.  The reason for 
this is 1.  A spill is MESSY and 2.  This stuff is available just about
