The term Estate car was used to designate a car used on an estate, for 
transporting passengers, goods and things that would not fit into the saloon 

This brings up another term, for the English elite - the Shooting Brake this 
was a very large Estate car with a fully fitted rear cargo area, complete with 
picnic basket holders, bottle holders, basket tie downs and other essentials.

squire would entertain his shooting partners with an informal 'picnic' - 
(defined as drinking binge!) 

Ah, the English aristocracy - so colorful in what they bring to the English
