Car Anatomy: Dogleg

If you have just found a passion for cars or simply want to know more, you have come to the right place. I am going to give you a head start on the chatter car guys throw around at the local Mustang launch.

Our first word is Dogleg. NOTE: some cars may not have a Dogleg and it has many definitions. We are focusing on an exterior part of a 4 door vehicle. Wikipedia states:

The area behind the rear door on a four-door car. This area is part of the quarter panel just behind the door and in front of the rear wheel house.

Now go quiz a car salesman, mechanic, or car guy and see if he can show you the dogleg. Be careful with phrasing. Quiz 1: Find a dogleg and post it here.
