An odd question

We are doing a grand prix (like a pinewood derby) at church.  I have won design for the past 6 years!  So this year is a racoon driving a trash can, like this...

Yes, it still needs wheels.  I need ideas of what kind of "trash" to put inside of it!  I also need ideas for a steering wheel and maybe a cleaver name to put on it.

Any ideas for me?  It can't go over 5 oz so keep that in mind :)

Thanks!

what do you think about crushed popcorn for trash? Popcorn is really light and you could grind it, smash it, paint it, etc.

 You could use torn up newspaper as the trash.  That is a really cute car

Oh, I love both ideas ladies!  Maybe a combination of different things?  Keep them coming!

How about leaves, stale cherios(you could color a few brown or green with a marker), or pistachios shells.
