Default Roadside tools..lol

Quirky little habit of mine..when I see stuff on the side of the road I tell my husband to pull over I think it was a "socket" or a "wrench" . He gets so aggravated with me and threatens to leave me there. Although one of my latest finds, the Matco 14mm he was quite impressed with... What can I say I like shiny things...lol

I'm always careful, people drive horrible in these parts. So I am always on the lookout for those drivers. Bizarre how much stuff is out there that you see, can you imagine the stuff you CAN'T see???

Pretty much except a bit bigger and they go on windows, you can often see them on cars at dealerships.
