Why do British call the hood and trunk of a car the bonnet and boot respectively?
The scotch bonnet gets its name from it resemblance to the traditional Scottish cap: the tam or tam o'shanter. The tam is a flat round cap with a pompom or tassel in the cente…r. These caps or bonnets are commonly red. Some may say the fiery taste of the pepper is like some of the strong whiskys of Scotland. Scottish settlers were common in the Caribbean since the early 1600s. In fact, King Charles I appointed a Scotsman, James Hay, Earl of Carlisle, as Governor of the Caribbees in 1627. Some say that one of the sailors who sailed with Columbus was a Scotsman who stayed behind in Hispaniola.

In Britain the Saloon was a luxe lounge area for the wealthy on ships, when the car was invented the nice ones were called saloons to lend an air of luxury to the car and …appeal to the wealthy.
Hi The word "Classic" is a derivative of the word "Class" which means a higher standard, something that has standards that others do not have. Look at the E-Type Jaguar fo…r example it oozes class. Or how about the Porsche 911 with its whale tail. If the E-Type Jaguar was built to day it would still turn heads. That's a "Classic Car". "Vintage" (depending on where you are) usually denotes a car that is at least 30 or 40 years old. "Antique" is older than that (some jurisdictions have special licences for these types of car). A "classic" car is generally one whose design, styling or performance was considered exemplary in its day, leading to collectors wating it. Some British classic cars would include the Jaguar XK120 and 150, the early MGs (the MGA for example), the Austin Healey 3000, many models of Bentley, Rolls Toyce, Aston Martin, Morgan, the Sunbeam Tiger, etc.

They aren't allowed to be sharp, big or strong enough to be significant risk if the car would collide with a pedestrian.
A ladies hat or, in reference to a car the front engine cover. Known as the hood in the US and elsewhere.
It is called a trunk in the U.S. It is called a boot in U.K. because that was the name given to the seat at the back of a horse-drawn coach where the coachman sat, which later… became a storage area.
