Well, I had it secured...sort of...

As I think we all know, I had a van for my amps and 'stuff' before. In
all honesty, I like carrying my stuff in a hatch because there is less
room to move around. We used to pack the van to keep it from shifting, but
there was still room left over...

Short of a collision stuff might roll around. But the only thing my Supra can do that would
make objects in the car go flying is stomping the brakes at high speed.

Do that at 120+ mph and everything and everyone not strapped down is going to eat the dashboard hard.
