frindley commented on the word fensterbunk
Daniel from the Toxic Custard Guide to Australia reports that ‘for some years, his sister has been promoting use of the word "fensterbunk" for the bit of a car between the back seats and the windows. This is a misheard version of the Dutch word "vensterbank", meaning "window sill". There is an English term for this: "rear parcel shelf", but this is not a good thing to call it, because anybody with the remotest idea about car safety will tell you it's a bloody stupid place to put parcels.’
