Recently, our pals over at Summit Racing asked a very simple question on their Facebook page:

“What is the strangest thing you’ve ever found in your air box while cleaning your air filter?”

And there was no shortage of reader contributions.

Suffice it to say, the results were *clears throat* surprising. After a few pauses to catch our breath, we compiled a list of some of the best (read: PG) responses. Check them out below and if you’ve got anything to add, let us know in the comments section at the bottom of this post!
