It did't add all the engine stuff, but I did just update the dictionary! Believe it or not, I didn't forget about this thread. Sorry it took so long. If anyone has anything to add or wants to know a definition, just post it up. At some point I'll alphabetize it put everything in different lists (parts of car, actions performed to car, car nick names, etc...)

To expand upon what Ed said, they in my experience, refer to that area as well as the inner portion of the rear quarter panel to include the area where the fake/faux/missing body mount is, before descending onto the rearend tunnel and back to the wheel well area.

Taking a station wagon and smashing down the roof behind the C pillar to make it look like a sedan. Usually done after the back body of a wagon is toasted but not always. Can be done roof even with the fenders or smashed to the floor. Many variations exist.

To me a "dog leg" has been any part of a factory frame rail that bends and twists in a strange way. for example a mopar shocker has a major dog leg from just behind the a arms to the fire wall... the frame bends down and in at the same time creating an area that is extremely hard to predict how it is going to bend under derby conditions. the straighter the frame a better.
