39: Dodge Demon
As the ’70s rolled around, the muscle car era was faced with a new plight. The rising costs of fuel and new EPA regulations were going to choke these cars out. The automakers had to downsize dramatically and fast, thus the Demon was born. The smaller muscle car was intended to build on the success of the previous generations. There was a lot of hype around the Demon but the actual car failed to meet expectations. Build quality was not what you’d expect out of a car in this segment.
The interior was notorious for lacking in quality and the reliability was not as good as previous vehicles. The lighter weight platform did have its benefits, but overall the Demon just didn’t stand up to the lasting expectations. These cars have been rising in value as a collector’s item but the Demon isn’t as popular as the Charger was.
