English term or phrase: from the back of a car
‎“Hawking” genuine product illegally from the back of a car would also be a good example of this type of illicit trade. ‎

The main idea is very clear, however am not sure if "the back of a car" is an idiomatic phrase" or an "Explicit statement" which literally means the "Trunk" as called in the US?
