Ahhh... I never knew it was called a 'boot' also... now the name of the show called 'Car booty' makes so much more sense to me..

(I was thinking it was slang of sorts..)

I guess "booty call" is another boot/booty again all entirely..??

Wonder if the word 'bootlegging' is derived from this meaning of the word 'boot' too or does it have another origin - does anyone know?
