    Been watching Top Gear UK on Netflix and have had to get used to the British automobile terms.

    Boot - Trunk
    Bonnet - Hood
    Windscreen - Windshield
    Saloon - Sedan
    Estate car - Station Wagon
    Lorry - Tractor Trailer
    Cabriolet - Convertible
    Coupe' - Coupe
    Gearbox - Manual transmission
    Petrol - Gasoline

    I still don't know what the British call a differential. Some of their colloquialisms leave me baffled.

    I'm also a fan. Favorite episode is the new where Richard takes the Marauder for a ride in South Africa.

    For those of you saying what the heck is a Marauder, here it is...

    Edit- for your viewing pleasure
