Convert your money to a gold bar(s).
Dip it in black paint (or some color). Toss it in the back seat.
When you get to your destination, clean it and then sell it.

I suppose, on average even with fluctuating gold prices it will all work out even no matter how many times you do it.

(too much trouble, but I mean, if you really need alternatives_)

I've always liked the idea of hiding things in plain sight. Here are a couple scenarios I thought of:

Put your cash in a box and wrap it with birthday gift wrap. Slap on a bow & tag and you've hidden it in plain sight. What cop is going to question much less try to open an obvious birthday present? If you want to make it more benign, use baby gift wrap. If questioned about it, it's a gift of some outfits for a friend / cousin / niece / granddaughter / coworker who just had a baby.

or

Take a box of crackers, cereal, Triscuits, or other food item you keep at room temperature. Open it from the bottom and remove some of the product. Close the interior plastic bag up and add your cash to the box. Make sure the weight feels reasonable. Use a hot glue gun to reseal the bottom of the box. It's now hidden in plain sight. What cop is going to give an ordinary box that is obviously factory sealed (on the top) a second look?

Also, I've seen a life hack online for emptying out an old deodorant stick container and using it as a cash concealer. It seems like that would work well too.

At smoke shops where you can buy "tobacco water pipes" (don't say the "B" word or you'll get kicked out), they oftentimes sell secret compartment stuffs. Like a plastic bottle of Mountain Dew, where it all looks real, except you can unscrew it in the middle and hide cash inside.

That sounds great. Until the car gets towed and the tow yard guy eats his way to the bottom of your Triscuts while he's hanging out "guarding" the cars all night...

They sell those and other similar fake product containers ready-made for that purpose of hiding/safekeeping of valuables. There was a whole shelf about a dozen versions of that kind of thing for sale at Fry's Electronics last time I was in. Probably safe from the tow yard guy ever wanting to use the deodorant, but I think they've become common enough that thieves are onto it, so maybe Mr. Policeman is too. If his fevered imagination decides you've got dope and comes up with grounds to search, I don't think I like the chances of the deodorant container surviving his inquisitive fingers. I think that "I'll 'hide' the stash in a [xxxxx] box or can, mon" has been the standard stoner thing since the 1970's. And never worked back then. Or so I'm told by those who can remember where they were and what-all they did in the 1970's.

I recall when I was 19 (underage). I crossed state lines with a case of beer, ounce of weed, and a couple tabs in search of a party. Got into PA, couldn't find it. Ended up partying with my buddy by ourselves in a random grocery store parking lot. He was 17. Slept in the car.

Woke up the next day and still couldn't find the party. Ended up drinking beer in the gas station parking lot next to a pay phone waiting for a return call. Out of boredom, my buddy cut up a Mt Dew can and wrapped it around his Miller Genuine Draft. We were twisted, it was funny. It was on the dash when 5-0 surprised us at the window. He questioned what we were doing, and after a lot of 5-0 type hassling, told us to beat feet. Never saw the beer. Never led to a search, avoided inevitable jail time.

Sometimes, stupid disguises work. Then again, I've also been pulled over and had 5-0 strip a boxed up pizza clean of toppings in search of contraband. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

My interpretation: pepperoni is a lot more tasty than Mountain Dew.

I'm just saying, sometimes you get lucky. But that's what it is - luck.

Having so many cop friends I hear the stories. People hide stuff in places you'd never imagine, places you wouldn't think possible. Like, how do you hollow out a bowling ball without destroying the ball or altering the weight? How do you hollow out a bolt, yet still have it work as a bolt?

Stuff like the cereal box? Pretty good idea, IMO. But if you're serious about hiding something, don't fall into a false sense of security. All it takes is that one cop that's having a good day, is full of initiative, and is ready to make a difference.

I guess that's where I'm at too. Just that when I was 19, I'd be sure to end up with the guy who had time for an unnatural interest in Mountain Dew.

I think that's why maybe gold is a good idea. Looks and feels like metal. Painted, it could be missed in the engine compartment, or even fitted into a piece cut out of the engine compartment. (I heard of people who are good at hacking up cars, wink wink)

Most likely you could avoid it having traces of drugs which money might hang onto and a dog might alert on.

I knew a guy who modified his gas tank to have a secret compartment in it. He did it himself, and I'm sure it wasn't very safe, but he had bigger concerns than a routine traffic stop (like you know, crossing the US-mexico border with drugs). He's been searched thoroughly and they never found it, since he had to disassemble part of the car to get to it, and everything that's visible without disassembling the car looks 100% original and untampered.

I wouldn't recommend screwing with your gas tank, but you could probably modify your windshield washer fluid container to hold some cash.
