According to a story in the San Jose Mercury News, a California man who bought a used minivan in 2010 got quite the surprise when he took the vehicle in to get the brakes fixed 15 months later: $500,000 worth of cocaine found hidden inside the vehicle's frame.

According to the Mercury News story, 19 kilograms of the drug were found hidden in the door panels and above the rear wheels. The owner of the auto dealership where the man purchased the minivan said he is willing to replace the vehicle, according to the Mercury News story.
