1971 Dodge Demon….Marketed as an economy car with style, the new A-body Dodge Dart Demon for 1971 was offered with a 198- or 225-cu.in. Slant Six or the 318 V-8 engine, but it soon earned a reputation as a low-buck supercar in Demon 340 trim.
The metal Demon and 340 fender emblems replaced the decals of 1971, and the Dodge decklid nameplate was redesigned and a Dart emblem was added for 1972.

For the low price of $2,721 (the equivalent $16,240 in 2016), the Dodge Boys equipped the Demon 340 with the 275-hp V-8, dual exhaust with chrome tips, a floor-shifted three-speed manual and a 3.23-geared rear end for go. Rallye suspension and E70 x 14 bias-belted tires enhanced handling and heavy-duty brakes shortened stops. For show, there were body-side tape stripes and a rear deck panel stripe in flat-black or white, grille surround molding, front hood and fender edge molding, "Demon" and "340" callouts and a wood-grained instrument panel. Completing the austere yet muscular theme were gauges (tach optional), steel wheels with hubcaps, vinyl bench seat interior and a rubber floor mat.

The Demon's mascot was a cartoon devil with a trident, and marketing materials were sprinkled with tongue-in-cheek puns. A few religious groups didn't get the joke, however, and Dodge took some heat for the devilish name.

Before fuel injection became a factory option in 1957, there was the SR-2. Created for road racer Jerry Earl, son of GM’s design chief Harley Earl who was racing a Ferrari at the time, the blue SR-2 was the first purpose-built Corvette race car. It was constructed from a production Corvette in the spring of 1956 with a longer nose, cove scoops, and a unique longitudinally-mounted low rear fin that extended out past its rear bumpers.

That fall a second SR-2 was built for designer Bill Mitchell, painted red and featuring a high-fin design which was eventually adapted to Earl’s car. In 1957, a third show car was constructed with a low shark fin, wire wheels, and a stainless hardtop. Also in ’57, the small-blocks lost their dual quad carbs and the SR-2 racers became the first fuel-injected Corvettes. These cars were raced at Daytona, Sebring, and Road America, competing against cars from Ferrari, Jaguar, Mercedes, and Maserati. Mitchell, who would later replace Earl as GM’s design chief, also liked to drive his on the street.

Both SR-2 race cars survive today, however, neither is part of the GM Heritage Collection. SR2 #1 was sold on eBay in 2015 for $6,885,000.

R Code 1964 Ford Galaxies 500.....
The Model year 1964 was the fourth and final year of this body style. Interior trim was altered, and the exterior featured a more sculpted look which was actually designed to make the car more aerodynamic for NASCAR. The formal-roof "boxtop" style was no longer available, all non-wagon models now featuring the "fastback" roof design that was the runaway best-seller in 1963. The base 300 was replaced by a line of Custom and Custom 500 models. The 289 continued as the base V8 and was standard in the XL series. XL models got new thin-shell bucket seats with chrome trim. Federal regulations now required lap-style safety belts for both front outboard occupants. The ignition switch was moved from the left side of the steering column, to the right, but otherwise the attractive instrument panel remained unchanged from '63. The 1964 XL two-door hardtop became the best seller of any XL produced in any year.

The 427 cu in (7.0 l) engine was used in 50 lightweight fiberglass-equipped cars for drag racing. These competed in North America.

1978 Mustang Cobra II.... The biggest news for 1978 was the King Cobra, which was made in '78 only.

The most desirable and collecible of II's, the King Cobra was a package for hatchbaks only, and it consisted of a front air-dam, rear spoiler, fender flares, reverse-facing hood scoop with 5.0 decal, pin striping around the whole car, blacked-out trim, King Cobra decals on the doors and rear spoiler, T-tops, huge snake hood decal like the Trans-Am's screaming chicken, the 302-V8, 4-speed, and performance suspension. King Cobra interiors were similar to Cobra II's, which continued. Only about 5,000 King Cobras were made, and came in Red, Silver, Black, Brown, Blue, and White.

1970 Oldsmobile Rally 350...... Perhaps the most unique among the “junior” muscle cars was the 1970 Oldsmobile Rallye 350. Available only in Sebring Yellow, its striking appearance was highlighted by color-matched bumpers and wheels that gave the Rallye 350 a look unlike any other muscle car on the street.

In an era when chrome was still cool, Oldsmobile’s monochromatic color scheme was certainly daring and influential on the future styling of performance cars. Instead of adhering to Oldsmobile’s traditional touch of class, the Rallye 350 was bold and muscular.

1981 Yenko Z28 Camaro is the “Rarest of them all”......In the Z28, Yenko and Kim Mason, his Chevy dealership general manager, saw the potential for an American GT that combined muscle car acceleration with sports car handling. Their vision crystallized in the 1981 Camaro Turbo Z, the rarest of all Yenko Camaros with just 19 made.

1976 Oldsmobile Omega SX.....If you still wanted a car with style but didn’t care about going fast. The compact 1976 Omega two-door coupe or hatchback could be optioned with the $171 code-Y66 SX Package, which superseded the 1974-'75 S package. It included special wheel-opening and body-side decals with “SX” identification, as well as rocker-panel and wheel-well moldings, sport-styled outside rearview mirrors with driver's-side remote control, FE2 Rallye suspension, and the Custom-Sport steering wheel.A 105-hp one-barrel 250-cu.in. inline six-cylinder engine was standard. A 110-hp 260 two-barrel V-8 (Oldsmobile) was optional. A 140-hp 350 two-barrel engine (N/A California) or a 155-hp 350 four-barrel were also offered at extra cost.
