An Inflatable Sheep, A Real Snake And Other Impossible Things Found In Used Cars

Whether they’ve been repossessed, exchanged or coming off a contract, used cars have to be thoroughly checked and cleaned before they can be sold.

While most times one only has to discard things like food wrappers, newspapers, old clothes and receipts, there are cases where people will actually leave things in there that are either very expensive or just very bizarre.

Independent car auction specialist G3 Remarketing has published a list of its 10 weirdest findings within the past decade, and we must say, it makes for a pretty entertaining read.

First off is the tale of a live corn snake found curled up on the passenger seat of a car. While we don’t know how big it was, adult corn snakes can grow to anywhere between 1.2 to 1.8 meters (3.9 to 5.9 ft) long. In another case, street drugs were found, which meant that the authorities had to be involved.

The list grows more weird. How about an unmarked box containing somebody’s ashes? Or perhaps a bunch of whips and chains – yep, that kind, not the ones used by villains to interrogate prisoners on Hollywood movies…

Other findings include a full five-a-side soccer team’s kit (brand new and in its packaging), a pair of crystal-encrusted Jimmy Choo shoes (that’s a pretty pricey thing to forget), boxes of DVDs featuring blockbuster movies, a gold wedding ring, a slightly squashed birthday cake, blow up dolls and… an inflatable sheep.
