I have a car bag too, mine looks like this:

Water filter
Water bottles
Energy bars
MRE's stripped
Rain Suit
Walking clothes and shoes
Knife, whistle, cord, pills, compass, multi tool,
Boonie hat

I have a good pistol in the car with carry gear and magazines to bring with me and I walk 4 miles every day.

I like the idea of a shovel, I have some small folding ones we take camping. Rain suit is a good idea.

In addition to most/all of the items above, I always have a hatchet in the car/truck as well. Never know when you need to move a tree, or break your way out of the vehicle.

I also have several sizes of knives. Small folder handy for opening stubborn chip bags, etc. Medium one for cutting up fruit, gutting fish, spreading peanut butter (not in that order). And a larger sheath knife, usually a Glock.

Although I have a toolkit, I often have a multi-bit screwdriver in the case as well as EMT shears.

Finally, a healthy roll of duct tape!
