If you’re like most people, you spend most of your nights awake, pacing your home, a quivering, sobbing, obscenity-shrieking wreck because you can’t stop wondering just how the cargo capacity of automobile trunks are measured. That’s why I’m happy to tell you there’s an answer, and that answer involves eight very specific pieces of magic luggage, conjured from the very aether by the wizards of the Society of Automotive Engineers. It’s time to reveal all.

I suppose this hypothetical set of luggage isn’t really a secret, since it’s mentioned in an official U.S. government document known as SAE J1100. In that document, in section 2.4 Luggage Capacity, it states:

Dragging this Tumi is probably the least cumbersome bag I've ever used to trek across JFK Airport. I don't know what else I could possibly ask for in a carry-on piece of luggage , so thank you, Calpak. The pretty white color and leather details remind me of a modernized vintage trunk .

We are used to having big cars here in the states. This is mostly how we pack our car for road trips, but I love your graphics. They shoved things like jackets ect into the small spaces around the luggage in the trunk .

The luggage capacity will be measured with the use of simulated luggage described in paragraph 8.1 and properly installed, detailed in paragraph 8.2, in a luggage compartment separate from the passenger compartment.

Now, it should be mentioned that this set of simulated luggage only appears to be used for determining the capacity of a separate, enclosed trunk area, like what you’d find on a sedan, coupé, or some sports cars.

Hatchbacks and station wagons seem to have their cargo capacity determined by overall volume, as determined by measurements and math.

While you’d think the SAE could apply similar formulae to computing the volume of a trunk, they take a different approach, arguably a more practical and real-world focused approach involving the sorts of objects one is actually more likely to cram in a trunk.

Sure, if all you carried in your car were large, soft sacks of grain, then you could likely fill the entire irregularly-shaped volume with cargo, but that’s not generally what most people pack in trunks.

To measure cargo capacity for trunks, the SAE came up with a set of what you could think of as the Platonic ideal of luggage. A hypothetical, idealized set of baggage that the SAE feels reflects what an average American wants to shove in their cars.

Here is what’s in that set of luggage:

• Men’s 2-suiter

• Women’s overnight

• Women’s pullman

• Women’s wardrobe

• Women’s train case

• Men’s overnight

• Golf bag containing:

2 woods, 4 irons, 1 putter, 10-1/2 shoes, 3 golf balls

• H-boxes

The first thing you may notice about this set of luggage is that it seems pretty, um, dated. The gender differentiation between women’s luggage and men’s luggage isn’t really all that relevant today—modern suitcases are pretty gender-neutral, really.

Also, the women’s luggage allotment is twice that of the man, if we assume the golf bag to be non-gendered. That feels like a pretty archaic notion, really. The list of luggage seems to have been decided in the era of ads like these:

Even though all of these pieces of luggage specified have somewhat distinctive shapes, they’re all just defined as rectangular volumes, with their dimensions given. They’re not just featureless boxes, though, since “conventional handles” are specified.

The only image of any type given in the SAE doc about the luggage is a diagram of the golf bag:

As you can see, you have the option of using real or simulated golf clubs, as long as that shaded area is nice and rigid. They don’t specify where the three golf balls are meant to be stored, though.

In addition to the named train cases and wardrobes and whatever, there’s also things called ‘H-boxes,’ which are roughly shoebox-sized boxes used to fill up any leftover space after the seven primary luggage items are placed in the trunk.

  Picking the Best Car for Elderly Passengers Getting in and out of a car may be a simple task for most people, but it can be a real challenge for seniors.&nbsp;Getting in and out of a car may be a simple task for most people, but it can be a real challenge for seniors.

When you decide to have a snack on the road, choose a place with a lot of trucks next to it. If you get into a stranger’ s car , talk to him about his travels, hobbies, or something else. This is a really convenient way to carry your jacket.

Most people think using a standard thinking pattern, and this makes it difficult for them to see any other solution other than the obvious one. But they were not twins. How could this be ? 7. The man and the car . © Unsplash.

The SAE even describes how the trunk should be packed:

“Place, in random order, as many as one standard luggage set of luggage into the luggage compartment, excluding H-boxes. When the best load is obtained using the standard luggage set, H-boxes may be added to arrive at the final load. Pieces from subsequent standard luggage sets may be used when the previous set is placed in the luggage compartment. A piece from the standard luggage set may be removed to place an H-box in the compartment, provided the removed piece is replaced.

The standard equipped spare tire and tools shall be properly installed in the luggage compartment. They may be loosened and moved to the limits of the attaching hardware and then retightened to attain the most advantageous position. Standard parts of the vehicle normally stored in the luggage compartment, such as a convertible top, shall be in the stored position when the usable luggage capacity is determined.

The luggage compartment lid or access door must close and lock freely without forcing or excessive slamming with all of the luggage in place in the compartment.”

Of course, automakers want to get the most luggage and H-boxes in their trunks as possible, so they’re not going to just cram stuff in at random just because the SAE says so. A whole sub-discipline of effective SAE trunk-packing to maximize total volume has sprung up, with scientific papers being published about packing algorithms, and exciting AI-assisted packing visualizations like this:

Since the trunk’s volume that a carmaker is allowed to advertise is based on the total volume of these official synthetic suitcases and whatever, carmakers are very interested in finding the optimal packing of their trunks so a little volume is wasted as possible.

I suppose if a trunk can’t fit the full standard set of luggage, the pieces that fill the volume most effectively are used to compute the volume? But I’m not sure if you can substitute multiple H-boxes for some of the larger items like the women’s Pullman, or something.

Modern manufacturers deal with the SAE luggage as CAD data, primarily, but at one time there had to be physical representations of these optimized, synthetic SAE suitcases used by both the design teams at car companies and the SAE themselves.

So far, I haven’t been able to find any pictures of these bits of test luggage, but I’m still looking. If I manage to find any, you’ll be the first to know, I promise.

So, the next time you’re comparing the trunk capacity of two cars, just remember that those numbers include space for three golf balls.

Rare Find: 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S W-31 Hides in Original Owner’s Garage for 34 Years .
"I was shocked when I saw it," Jimmy McKeague said. The "it" was a 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S Holiday Coupe with the W-31 option. A W-31 is not the same as a big-block W-30, but it's still a real W-Machine with a fiberglass hood with functional ram air feeding a 325hp 350 purposely built by Oldsmobile for enthusiasts. These cars are very rare and attract owners with erudite knowledge of Oldsmobile muscle. Dabblers or flippers in the muscle car hobby would likely mistake the unique W-31 350 as a common GM V-8 fitted with a four-barrel.Jimmy is a mile deep in knowledge and an inch wide in focus.
