Self drilling screws. And of course a hammer and cold chisel and a vice.

I would rate a multimeter as a pretty useful piece of kit to have as well; I carry a small digital one around with me almost everywhere I go, as it comes in handy not just on the car but diagnosing household electrical stuff too.

On the subject of Dads and tools, my dad gave me all his old Whitworth spammers when I first got my first Minor. They are still my favourite spanners to use, especially the 1952 vintage 1/4 Whitworth Britool I have, cheers John

Just to bring a smile to a dead topic, here are my two favourites, first my Estwing for when you really need to be a lumber jack at a party, it has a leather belt pouch for concealed carry. :-) I am being silly here, still it is the sort of thing that one likes to show to the ladies. :-)

It does not break, my son covets it. ( I would not let him take it to school :-)

Then my really best tool is a German "WITTE" it's a cross between a Mole and a Stillson, it opens up to around five inchs and does not let go. Bought it when I was in London forty five years ago for about six quid and never seen another one like it.

When you need to get hold of something and not let go.

Bit of a small tool beauty is my extendable magnetic tool for collecting that lost bolt,screw or clip that fell under the car or down the back of the dash that you cant get to.
It has got me out of trouble so many times for those out of reach items. :)
