What I always thought was one of the most wimpy cars of the 60’s and 70’s was the Dodge Dart. I know you could order it with racing stripes and a Hemi engine but it just never impressed me, sorry. Now news comes out of Detroit that plans are in the works to re-introduce the Dodge Dart.  It’ll be available with a four cylinder engine. They do include a turbo option.  Here’s a then and now series of the Dart.


This was from a time when designers were into angles and square lines. Lots of chrome too.






The Dart from the early days could really come off as a "plain jane."

When Dodge came up with this name for one of their Dart models no one gave it a second thought.










Now lets  take a look at what the 2013 Dodge dart looks like.
