Some state have "open bottle" laws - prohibiting any access to alcoholic
beverages from within the car.  It's been a few years since I lived in
Minnesota, but at that time the only legal way to transport such was in the
trunk.  I had a station wagon at the time - real problem.  (But I've come a
long way since then.)
