I have to admit as a native English speaker
The American altn English usuage quite often makes more sense, than ours
Especially with auto parts
We say bumper implying one uses it to deliberalely bump into things
You say fender ie fending off
You say muffler, ie sound attenutating
We say silencer, I drive a diesel , it dosent "silence"
We say boot???
You say trunk, that makes sense
But I do say
should be left alone
What does "fair forenenst" mean
It has a very specific meaning
Not sure of the spelling though
