I always love seeing cutaway diagrams of cars, and one of the details I love most is the remarkable cramming skills of whoever’s shoving the luggage in. No bit of volume is wasted. Look at that valise shoved right up against the rear bulkhead there—that took some foresight, knowing that it would deform and fill exactly the remaining empty volume behind that furthest-back hardshell suitcase and the trunk’s back wall. So good.

I’d tip my hat to you, sir, but someone crammed my hat box into a tightly packed trunk.
