Survival kit in your automobile

What kind of things do you have in your survival kit in your automobile?

I have the "5 Cs" in my car kit:

  • Cordage 
  • Cover
  • Container
  • Cutting tool
  • Combustion device

I keep a fairly large tarp, a roll of paracord or rope, and some tent stakes of varying lengths to make a hasty shelter as needed. If you have room, consider a few bottles of water and some basic dehydrated foods in packets for the really dire situations. Also, of course, pack some basic first aid supplies.
