Default Back halved: What does it mean

I have heard the term several times and I would like to know what it means. I heard it on a racing show last night on speed channel refferring to a 68 Camaro that the guy was running a 427.

It refers to the rear portion of the car being modified with an aftermarket/custom fabricated frame assembly to accept the larger wheels and tires and the narrowed rearend while the front uni body frame remains stock or stock appearing. For comparison...see the EBay link containig a full tube frame car....totally different than back halving......

Agreed. If it's not your thing, fine. Some people happen to like the look. It came about when tire technology wasn't there and you needed big tires to put ridiculous horse power on the ground. Tunnel rams, carburetors, blowers, side pipes, loud mufflers, etc. are all not necessary, but people still like them. Let people build cars the way they like. Your negative comment isn't the answer this guy was looking for. You could've at least explained your answer. That way the guy could learn something.

Have a nice day.

here's a link to a back-half work-in-progress that I happened across a few moments ago, prowling around on Craigslist.
I'm not plugging the ad; it has a good pic of what a correctly done back-half entails for a race purpose car.

Hey Jeff - I thought I'd take a second and point out we try to avoid inflammatory remarks here, you did a good job of damage control after seeing it upset others but it's best not to post statments that will rub folks the wrong way! I'm leaving the post but most likely others will be put off by that first comment and will be letting you know it!

I respect your right to not like something or disagree with with someone but there are ways to express that without taking shots!

Thanks,

I guess this makes up for the punch.Thanks for the compliment I just have always liked big tire cars its just me I guess.Oh my 15 year old and I are building a 70 Chevelle Pro-Street car I tried to talk him out of it that the stock frame on his car is better but I think he is hooked to.Its better than him wanting a Honda though.I dont wear panties I wear thongs if you would like I could show you.Oh this is a family site sorry I guess will have to pass.
