1969 GTO Judge Parking Lot
Biggest GTO image collection anywhere!
These photos were sent in by Brian Watson in Niles, Michigan. We're approaching a dilapidated garage. Could that be a Judge under that snow?
CLICK-> No way! It is a Judge under the snow! Brian writes, "Came across a RAIII 1969 Judge that has been sitting in the driveway for years. Owners won't sell it but don't seem to want to restore it either. Makes ya wanna cry! Ha."
CLICK-> Here's a last view of this "untouchable" and neglected 1969 Judge. The photo was made 2/18/04.
CLICK-> PHS documented Matador Red 1969 Judge owned by Steve Struna from Lander, Wyoming. Its got a Ram Air III engine, 4-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, power steering, power disc brakes, posi, hood tach, rally gauges, and an AM-FM radio.
CLICK-> Well worn but still in use Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop. A site visitor snapped these pictures and tells us this story, "A nurse works near my home and this is her daily driver. She has no intention of ever selling or restoring it per my last conversation with her. She has been offered big $$ and keeps saying no."
CLICK-> Faded Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop, right front view. The paint hasn't stuck too well to the Endura bumper. This is probably the original paint job.
CLICK-> Faded Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop, left front view. This car appears to have little rust and very straight.
CLICK-> Faded Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop, hood tach view. I wonder if this is an original tach. They were very fragile. Many originals are broken due to slamming the hood. Look at the windshield. It appears that a towel is laying across the dash. Maybe it's to prevent getting cracks in the dashpad? The owner may be caring for this car after all!
CLICK-> Jim Zrodlowski from Indiana owns this Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop. Jim had this to say, "I have owned this car since 1982. It has 43,000 miles, RAIII, M20 4-speed transmission. It was built at the Arlington Plant in Arlington Texas and sold thru Weller-Welsh Pontiac in LaGrange Illinois. I am the third owner of the car, and the second owner was the nephew of the original owner who told me that from when the car was new until he got it in 1979 the car was used mostly for drag racing only. The car was repainted in 1986 and had new carpeting installed at that time. I installed 7 inch Rally II wheels with trim rings because I didn't like the 6 inch with no rings, I also put on a chrome air cleaner lid. The car mostly goes to local shows, but I really do enjoy cruising around on those nice sunny days."
CLICK-> Jim's Judge has hideaway headlights and Rally II rims with trim rings.

CLICK-> Here's a few pictures of Mark's restoration project. Mark comments, "I`ve been working on my 69 for over 4 years in my spare time and I mean spare time.It`s tuff juggling the family and trying to restore a car at the same time. I did a frame off restoration in my garage at my house. I sand blasted the frame and the undercarriage as well,what a mess!!!!!! I was in 4-5 inches of sand on my garage floor. I hope I never do that again. I`ve done a lot of chrome work on the car. I went a little overboard on the chroming."
