During my years in Texas in the 1970's,
I often heard "turtle" used for trunk in
the Ft. Worth area.  I will admit it was
used among the Model T crowd mostly, but
it was alive and well, as was "mint" for
any flavor Livesaver-like candy and
"tank" for any pond--man-made or
I have Texas relatives who still use
"turtle" or at least recognize the term.
