Before social media ever existed, if automotive enthusiasts wanted to be noticed or recognize other fans, they joined a car club. For Dodge muscle car lovers from 1968 through 1971, that group was known as the Scat Pack. Just like the Charger, Challenger and Dart nameplates, it looks like the Scat Pack could be getting a resurrection by Chrysler.

Automotive News is reporting that Chrysler recently renewed its trademark on the Scat Pack name, and while this is in no way a guarantee that the name will return, AN talked to Tim Kuniskis, Dodge President and CEO, who stoked the fire a little more. In the article, Kuniskis said that the name is "a very important part of our history" and added that "we like the whole idea of having a Scat Pack of cars." Scat Pack models were identified by their bumblebee stripes and helmet-wearing bumblebee logo, and the idea of a modern Scat Pack doesn't seem all that outlandish in light of recent vehicles like the Charger SRT Super Bee and the Ram 1500 Rumble Bee Concept.

What do you think, is this a cool idea, or is it just an unwelcome bit of nostalgia? Have your say in Comments.

      I think scat has another connotation which is now known by more people than it was 45 years ago.

      Dodge please do not bring back "scat pack". This to some May seem like a great idea, and I appreciate the history here I really do. However, since the time period that this name was popular the ideology associated with the term "scat" has changed SIGNIFICANTLY! Allow me to educate the guys in suits that are siting at their desks over there in Auburn Hills Michigan. "Scat" is a quite disgusting dark sub culture of fetishistic activity directly related to sexual gratification by use of feces. Again, NOT something that you want to have associated with your brand. This is not a joke. Look it up if ya want, however I wouldn't if I were you. It's quite disgusting!

      Perhaps a different name is in order? Rule 34 and all that...

      Dodge could use a little boost in the performance area. SRT is really it's own thing and takes away from Dodge. I vote for going with a new name to signify the performance non-SRT Dodges. Something subtle in name, but not in what it is. I think R/T is all you'll need here. But no more stickers and tires guys, if you're not going to go all in, don't do it at all. An R/T should have 100+ more HP than the model below it and the SRT should have 100+ more than the R/T. Think Audi S, Cadillac VSport... (and those names aren't on FWD V6 people movers / vans so R/T shouldn't be either)

      How about the Fecal Package or perhaps SuperDoody?

      The word "scat" may have some history with Dodge, but in today's market that word has got to go! They should just rename to a more marketable name while still keeping the Super Bee logo/theme.
