Default missing/broken trunk access panels. problem?

One of the access panels in the trunk of my convertible is missing. It's the one covering the antenna motor. The other that covers the battery jump terminals has a crack in one of the slats. I wonder if this indicates a past and repaired problem. Nothing looks damaged.

I just purchased the car and it is in exceptional mechanical and cosmetic condition. It also has a clean Carfax. Any thoughts on this or am I just being paranoid?

Previous owner left a loose bowling ball in the trunk?

You are wondering if in 12 years a really attractive woman has been on any dates.
I'd be worried if she hadn't.

Funny but accurate assessment. I found a few golf tees in the trunk. I think it was a rouge golf bag that was the culprit. Brings a new meaning to the saying "junk in the trunk".

How did you deduce the colo(u)r? I bet it was a rogue golf bag.
