The Dodge Demon

I saw this cap in the store the the other day and I realized I haven't seen a Dodge Demon on the road since I was a kid.

One of the coolest car model logos of all time

1972 Dodge Demon GSS
340 cubic-inch supercharged V-8, with 360 horsepower

Dodge Demon's were special edition variants of the Dodge Dart made from 1971 to 1972.  Their future was doomed however, as gas guzzling high output Muscle cars became a thing of the past in 1973 with the advent of factory smog controls.

I remember only occasionally seeing Dodge Demon's as a kid, and knew they were kind of rare, and I personally haven't seen one on the road since the mid eighties.  The last I heard, due to shoddy record keeping, no one knew exactly how many of these Demon's were produced or sold.

The original price of these cars was about $3500.00.  Today you can count on spending anywhere from 21,000.00 to 41,000 depending on its condition.
