Replaced by the Dart Sport due to religious reasons if memory serves.

I think you are right Churchy. Christian groups were complaining about the name and logo.

The Duster was introduced in '70 on A-bodies, and the nameplate was used on on F-bodies (Volare/Aspen) in '80, and also on P bodies (Shadow/Sundance) in 1990,they came with a V6.

As for the Demon, it faced it's demise, as mentioned above. Dodge re-named it the Dart Sport in '73.
They ended up with two different body styles of Darts, both on A bodie platforms.
The Dodge Dart Sport and also the Dart Swinger...

Chrysler had too many complaints about the name "Demon" Coyote Jack's Demon actually has a name plate which says "Dart Demon" I am not sure if this is stock or otherwise.

Common knowledge for you maybe(you have been around cars longer than me) but not for me, this was news to me two years ago and I'm sure there are more out there which don't know.

that is what it says BUT this is not what I meant, it should have said (you work on cars daily and I don`t). I could have left it that way and had a heck of a good laugh. I guess your English is better than mine and it should be. Still funny though...you being older. LMAO
