I think it's safe to assume...

That my car's previous owners had children...or just one really messy one.

Look what I found under the rear seat.

If you look closely you will probably find little worms in the food residue.

Its enough to make you fobid the kids to eat in the car!

You can compare that to what was under the seats and carpets of my 2.3-16 when I purchased it from a woman on Maui.





There were at least a half dozen more pens, more coins, little girl earrings and receipts.

I was just a little shocked when I removed the seat, and saw an entire box of Cheerios underneath... It's strange, because the rest of the car is super clean..

It's almost as if the kid was shoving things in there intentionally...I found an ENTIRE piece of what looks like it used to be chocolate cake stuck to the bottom of the seat!

When I pulled the seatbacks out, I also found that the wires to the stock Becker amplifier were all cut... -_-

That's about what the interior of all of my vehicles look like.

The face of the 20 leva banknote depicts the Boyana Church frescoe of Duchess ("sevastokratoritsa") Desislava, who lived in the 11th century AD. She and her husband donated the funds used for the construction of the church, and according to the centuries-long tradition, frescoes of them were painted inside the church. The back of the banknote depicts the Boyana Church itself.
