I remember losing some leftover salad shrimp in my 75 Nova after a July day of steelhead fishing. The smell was barely perceptable at first. Think it was early September by the time I finally tore the car apart, and pulled a sealed baggie of pink goo from the spare tire well. Pretty much a chemical weapon at that point.This was the early 80's. The waders gave me a "radius of exclusion" of about 1 seat.
Although maybe it was the mike's box full of gooey clusters and sand shrimp parts...
Also remember trying to find the top end on that car. Speedo was long since buried, but hit 5600 rpm in 4th (with 3.08 rear end) on that long straight on highway 30 just past Clatskanie. Still wasn't floored, but the front end was starting to float, and my rear end was starting to pucker. Somewhere in the ballpark of 160.
