    Yeah, you noticed a few 'flakes' along with the pits, right? Don't worry, I am going to wash the car with Head and Shoulders Dandruff shampoo before I weld up the patch panels.

    The car spent its life in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Can someone from that area identify these for me?
    Crushed Buckeye nuts!!!

    Don't have a clue but we in Michigan just love the sound of that.

    They are hackberries. Get a cat, mice love them. If you have a hackberry tree mice will collect these and leave them mostly on top of your engine block.

    Maybe, but do you know the latin name for this species?

    If so, they are sure different from any acorns I have seen. These are really small (maybe 1/4" across) and look like they split down the middle like a cherry, apricot or peach pit.
