Buick steals the show

Last weekend the Shriners held an auto show close to my house. I was at the entrance when this 1934 Buick rolled in. It is a really nice car. Note the wooden spokes and “trunk” on the back. The word trunk originally started with such a trunk. As the industry progressed the “trunk” became an internal part of the car but the term remained part of the auto lexicon.
