a 'car boot' is short for a 'car boot sale'.
basically it's a load of cars in a field somewhere, with people selling second-hand goods out of the back of their cars.
oh a car boot is a 'trunk', i believe you call it, or is it a 'hood'? - the back one anyways, where the engine isn't...
ps - if you want to quote multiple people, first click on the 'multi' button for the first, second etc quotable person, then click the 'quote' button for the last.
