Here's an easy one, I forgot about this. Why did Dodge quit calling the Demon in 71 and 72 the Demon, and named it Dart Sport for 73?

Demon

I suspect it would have something to with expiring of license agreements with Warner Bros cartoons? (Taz, the Tasmanian Devil name & image, etc)

Trivia

I can't think of any real difficult ones either right now, so here's a "puffball":
What was the fastest production car in the world in 1949? What did its model name signify? And, for bonus points, that engine continued in production, essentially unchanged, until when?

Mystery Engine

Well it looks like you guys are waiting on me so after a little thought I came up with a multiple answer question:

During the same year that the first James Bond movie was released a revolutionary new engine was introduced by one of the automobile companies that was part of the the GM family. A few years after it was introduced GM sold the rights and all of the tooling for this engine to one of the smaller American automobile manufactures. Then a few years after the sale, the engine rights and all of the tooling was acquired by another company. Then a few years later GM contacted the new owner about producing the engine for them. The price per unit was deemed to high so GM bought back the rights and the tooling and began producing them again. Variations of this engine have been installed in virtually 90% of all cars produced by GM from the late seventies all the way up to when production officially ended on Friday, August 22, 2008.


So with all that said, here are the questions:

1. What year was this engine introduced?
2. What was the original name that was given to this engine?
3. What was the name of the automobile company that first produced it?
4. What was the name of the the automobile company that bought the rights and the tooling?
5. And what was the name of the company that GM bought back the rights and the tooling from?

I bet Brian gets this one without even thinking about it!

Chris, the very first thing I think of is the 215 Aluminum block. But GM never used it again after selling it to British Leyland. It was about 1961 that it was introduced. I don't know of any knick name for it (sorry Dan, it wasn't "Nailhead", that is a totally different motor).

And of course, the aluminum block wasn't used in the seventies at all by GM. Like I said, I don't believe GM ever bought it back.

So, the only other alterative is the V6.

1. Again, about 1961
2. Other than the "odd fire" no knick name that I know of.
3. Buick
4. Jeep
5. Chrysler
