Last year, Tye Kuykendall of Georgia bought an impounded car from a towing company. While working on the car later, Kuykendall found a hidden compartment behind the back seat containing $200,000. Too bad the money was counterfeit. From the Associated Press:
Authorities said Kuykendall bought the car after it sat for more than three years in an impound yard after being towed by Fulton County police in 2006."Ga. man buys car, finds $200K in counterfeit cash" (Thanks, Gabe Adiv!)
Authorities said he was fixing a gas leak when he discovered the secret compartment.
