Another shot of the Car as Justin purchased it in 1999. Justin goes on to say, "I have owned four GTOs since 1983, including 2 original 1969 Judges and a Chrome-front-bumper 1968 GTO. I wanted a low-optioned 1969 GTO that I could add my preferred options to." CLICK->
This is how the interior looked in 1999. Nice and clean CLICK->

Here is a junked 1969 LeMans in the weeds. Chad Haas visited the website and had this to say, "I would like to see you dedicate some space for discussion to what I strongly feel will revolutionize the car collecting hobby and eventually GTO enthusiasts. For many years I've often felt that there are so many reproduction parts made by companies like Year One, Performance Years, etc that it was almost possible to assemble an actual car. Generally speaking, the only parts that were not being reproduced by these companies is the frame and body. After attending SEMA this month (November 2005). Can you believe that it is now possible to buy a reproduction 1969 Camaro convertible bare body or a complete turn key car? MSRP for the bare steel (not fiberglass) body is $10,500 at http://www.dynacorn.com/site/14classics/classic.html
Someday very soon, we will see all of the great musclecars reproduced, including the GTO, versus digging these treasures up from the graveyard. So, if enthusiasts cannot afford, or find, a RA-IV Judge Convertible, in the near future they will be able to build it just as they would have ordered it from the factory ... or restify it to include the latest technologies, just as Chip Foose/Year One/Unique Performance have done with their collaboration on the Camaro and Mustang. It makes all of the sense in the world to me. Word at SEMA was that we will be seeing a Cuda reproduction body within the next two years (in 2007?). As for me, I would love to buy a '69 convertible shell and build it into my dream car: A black on red RA-IV Judge convertible. Thank you for the opportunity. Warmest regards, Chad Haas, Portland, Oregon" CLICK->

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Bill G (skyhawk91e.@yahoo.com) - "Your site takes some of the sting out of not having my own GTO. I can look at the other GTO's and dream. Hopefully, I'll own one soon."
